7 Tips For Cooling & Savings

1. Clean Air Filters Make A World Of Difference

Dirty air filters make it challenging for your AC to keep you and your family cool, not to mention, the additional wear & tear and operating costs due to the restricted airflow. It’s important to know what is the best air filter to use and how often to replace it. For expert advice on filter selection, check out our video.

2. Use “Auto” Mode For Your HVAC’s Fan

On the thermostat, put your fan position into the “auto” mode. If it is in the “on” position, your fan will continuously circulate your cool conditioned air throughout your home. While it’s doing that, it will pick up heat from your attic and slowly heat your home up. That’s the exact opposite of what you want! This won’t happen if your fan is in “auto” mode. For air circulation throughout your home, operate ceiling fans instead.

3. Keep Landscaping Debris Away From Your Outdoor AC Unit

Take a few minutes to remove debris away from your outdoor unit...grass, twigs, branches, & leaves are culprits for blocking the airflow and when that happens, your AC can’t provide you with cool air as effectively as it normally could. If it’s blocked for too long, your AC may totally fail! Picture removing debris as helping your unit breathe more easily.

4. Pay Attention To Your Doors & Windows 

Unsealed doors and windows let cool air seep out…when running your AC, ensure that they’re totally shut. If you have any leaks, caulk and weather stripping may do the trick. You can even stop some sunlight heat from entering your home by using things like window screens, window films, or solar screens. Also, closing your blinds or curtains will have a similar effect.

5. Minimize Tasks That Create Heat

You can drop the temperature in your home by reducing activities that create heat. You don’t have to make these changes all the time, but every now and then helps:

  • Instead of turning on your dishwasher, handwash dishes.
  • Give your clothes dryer a break and put your laundry on a drying line outside.
  • Enjoy the summer past time of grilling outside instead of using your stove.

6. 78 Degrees Is The Magic Number

When you’re at home, don’t set your thermostat below 78° - this will help reduce cooling costs. The Energy Star program, run by both the DOE & the EPA, states that 78° is a good thermostat setting for energy-efficiency during summer weather. If you’re concerned this setting isn’t cool enough for comfort, operate ceiling fans throughout your home and keep your blinds and curtains closed to block the sunlight.

7. Add 5 Degrees When You Leave 

Traveling or going to work for the day? Simply raising your thermostat up 5 degrees will reduce your AC’s workload and help to cut those energy costs. When you get home, coming back down 5 degrees won’t be very stressful for your AC.

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.
