How To Avoid AC Problems & Stress This Summer

Family Enjoying Meal And Toasting Glasses

Use Our Tips To Avoid A Stressful AC Breakdown

Summer in Phoenix means temperatures will easily reach 100° plus! With more time at home, staying comfy only becomes more important – so take advantage of our tips that help you avoid an AC problem. To enjoy even more peace-of-mind, have one of our certified professionals take a close look at your AC system & make any needed adjustments with our $69 Summer AC Safety Inspection Special. You can always rely on Hobaica for all your home’s AC, plumbing, electrical & security…we’re your likable, go-to team for whole-home comfort, reliability & safety!

6 Tips To Keep Your AC Going Strong

1. Ceiling Fans Are Your Friends

While ceiling fans won’t actually lower the temperature, the breeze created by them will help you and your family feel cooler overall. With your fans running, you may feel comfortable enough raising the thermostat by a few degrees – that’ll reduce the strain on your AC AND help you save on energy bills!

2. Don’t Forget Your Air Filters…

We recommend you change your air filters at least once per month. As air is moved through your ducts, filters capture dirt and dust…but after enough time, a dirty filter will hinder the airflow, making your AC work even harder to keep you cool. If dirty filters are left in for too long, all that extra stress can shut down your AC completely! Learn more about choosing filters for your home here.

3. Don’t Go Below 78 Degrees

The federally operated Energy Star program recommends 78° as an energy-efficient setting during the summer – by not going lower than 78°, you can save on cooling costs and your AC system will have some stress taken off of it. If this temperature feels a bit too warm for you, try using breeze from your ceiling fans as mentioned above!

4. Goodbye Debris

If your outdoor AC unit is blocked by sticks and leaves from bushes and trees, it will need to work harder than usual to keep you cool. If a buildup of debris is allowed to clog your unit for long enough, it will eventually shut down completely. As you can see, it’s definitely worthwhile to clear away any debris near or on your unit!

5. Set Your System’s Fan To “Auto” 

Using your thermostat, set the fan position to “auto”…in this setting, the AC fan will operate only while your compressor is on and is pushing cold air. Why does that matter? If the fan is in the “on” position, it will continually run even if the compressor is not. This means your fan will still be recirculating the cooled air from the living space of your home into other parts of your home, including your attic. As the heat from your attic is picked up and returns to your living space via your AC system, that will raise the temperature in your home! If you try to turn down the thermostat to combat the extra warmth, you’ll just be adding more unnecessary stress to your system.

6. Set It 5 Degrees Higher When You’re Gone

If you’re leaving home for work or traveling elsewhere, it will take stress off your AC and help you save on your energy bill if you turn up the thermostat by 5 degrees. And don’t fret! 5 degrees higher will still be a great temperature to keep your house plants and pets cool and happy.

I had a leaky faucet and, because our regular plumber was out of town, called Hobaica because they have serviced our AC/heating units for years and I knew I could trust them to do plumbing work, too. Ryan Waters came over in just a couple of hours and quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem. I would recommend him to anybody who needs an honest and efficient plumber.

Scott Dale was johnny-on-the-spot (weekend service!) and diligent in attempting to find a freak leak from the A/C return duct inside the house. It occurred during the strong monsoonal activity in Phoenix during the month of July and he diagnosed that it was probably condensation on the return duct in the attic from humidity that then ran down the duct to the return register in the house. No problems found. Great work and very professional service from Scott!

I called Hobaica when my wine cellar stopped cooling my wine. The technician, Binh, came out the very next day and was quickly able to diagnose the problem. A very specialized part was needed, but Binh was able to bypass it and get my wine cooling again.He came back a few days later to install the new part and now everything is back to normal. I didn’t mention it earlier, but I called several other companies before Hobaica. They either couldn’t come out on a timely basis or they didn’t have the expertise to repair a wine cellar. I would definitely call Hobaica again!

I have dealt with Hobaica for the last 2 years. They are friendly, professional, on time and do an excellent job. I just had a capacitor fail on my AC and Mat Sanzari was the tech who did the repair. He did a great job. Best of all the AC unit was still under warranty so there was no charge for the repair. All of the previous techs have been very nice, knowlegable, and able to solve my issues in a timely manner. Chase, the service manager, was very helpful in getting my most recent repair scheduled and the repair done quickly. I would recommend Hobaica to anyone.I had my end of 2 year (from date of purchase) service visit and Scott Dale was wonderful to work with. He was prompt, professional and his follow up was excellent. He inspected everything and said our A/C unit was operating beautifully. He explained to me the "no worry extended labor warranty" but did not pressure me to purchase the extended warranty. He was very honest and allowed us to decide if we wanted to extend the labor warranty for the next 10 years. We felt it made sense and wasn't cost prohibitive when spread out over the next 10 years and therefore we did extend the labor warranty. All of my dealings over the last two years with Hobaica Services have been great and I would use them again for sure. Scott Dale was great and treated us well on this last visit.B and M Bowen

I reached out to Hobaica to install a Tesla Wall Connector in our garage. They were very polite and immediately scheduled us for a quote with Steven. Steven was amazing in all phases of the project. In all our appointments he was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. Made me very comfortable and was respectful when entering our home, ensuring social distance and wearing shoe coverings. Truly amazing to work with. Shoutout to their office staff as well, especially Tina, who was able to work with us so the project accommodated our budget. All in all, this was a great experience and exceptional company to work with. I would highly recommended Hobaica to anyone in the future.
