Maximize Energy Efficiency in Your Phoenix Home

Visualizing the walls of your house as a huge storage space for a maze of connected ducts is a highly effective tool for accomplishing consistent energy efficiency.  Just as no chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link, no overall energy system is more efficient than its most inefficient component.

Your home comfort system comprises about half of the full amount of your total residential energy usage.  Thus, it is only logical and quite obvious that maximizing energy efficiency must also begin at the biggest source of waste – HVAC.

Below is a basic overview of the best ways to harmonize all systems in order to optimize overall energy efficiency.

Seal off all air leakage.

Peak energy efficiency cannot possibly exist where inner air constantly seeps outside.  As long as warm air can escape during colder weather and enter throughout sizzling summers, your heating/air conditioning equipment must work overtime to compensate in order to maintain programmed interior temperatures.

Take a long stroll through the inside and outside of your house at least once a year to look for potentially air leaks, such as:

– Worn/damaged weather stripping around windows and door casings

–  Gaps between windows and/or doors and surrounding framework

– Cracking or gaps between exterior siding and underlying foundation

– Open spaces around holes bored into walls to provide entry points for pipes or wiring

Replace Inefficient Insulation

Insulation is designed to decrease heat entrapped within interior wall spaces.  Verify whether existing insulation complies with current Zone 1 and Zone 2 R-value specifications.  Start in the attic and work your way down into smaller areas and exterior wall insulation.  Attic insulation must be at least one inch below floor joisting and have no holes or gapping areas.

Duct Work

Schedule a professional duct inspection to ensure sufficient insulation, sealing, and absence of any blockage in your duct work.

HVAC Machinery

If your HVAC system was installed more than fifteen years ago or requires excessive repair, seriously consider replacing it.  During your search for suitable options, stick only with Energy Star equipment.  Such units are easily identifiable by a bright yellow sticker on the side.  A large black number printed on its surface reveals the relative energy efficiency of the equipment it is attached to.   That number is far more important than the digits displayed on the price tag.

July '22: Welp, of course the older AC goes out in the Phoenix summer on a long holiday weekend but Hobaica saved our holiday! Called the emergency line and they were able to get a technician (John M) on site within 2 hours. John was very helpful in explaining the situation and helping evaluate the options, very knowledgeable, informative, efficient, and of course top notch customer service.As I've used Hobaica twice in less than a year on two systems, I'll be relying on them in the future for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC needs.Nov '21: Of the 5 - 7 separate HVAC companies that came to give a quote, they were the only ones to provide more than one option based on the specific needs of the space and its use.My only criticism is regarding specifics of installation that I now have questions on, that should've been hammered out beforehand.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
