Stay Cool In High Temperatures With These Tips

How To Survive The Heat If Your AC Is Malfunctioning

The spring and summer temperatures in Arizona can be unforgiving, even a threat to your health. Younger children and the elderly in particular are especially at risk of health concerns caused by high heat and caregivers advised to take precautions during extreme temperatures. Heat can be particularly detrimental to you and your family’s health when your AC unit is not functioning properly during a heat wave. 

Make use of these tips to stay cool if your AC feels like it’s not functioning properly or you experience a surprise breakdown and are waiting on a technician for repairs.

Stay Hydrated

Being overheated can lead to heat stroke and potentially death. Water moves heat from your organs, out to your bloodstream. Once the heat reaches the skin, you will sweat. Sweating causes evaporation, cooling you down and keeping your body temperature within a healthy range.

Keep Your Air Vents Opened

There is a belief that closing AC vents in unused rooms will save energy by redirecting the flow of air to other vents, but this is far from the truth. Whether your AC is functioning right now or not, you should always leave all of you air vents open so that the air can flow through the channels freely. 

Closing them will raise your energy costs, increase pressure in your air ducts and reduce the efficiency of your system leaving you with even less cold air flow. This pressure and inefficiency will also put more strain on your system, putting it a risk for a shortened life span.

Use Ceiling Fans

Having your ceiling fans running won’t actually make the temperature lower, but the circulated air will make your body think that your home is cooler than it actually is. In fact, using ceiling fans can make the temperature feel as much as 10 degrees lower than it actually is, which can make all the difference to a hot room.

Our AC blower motor broke twice since mid-June. Hobaica came to replace it twice since then. However, we noticed that our AC wasn't blowing enough air as it did previously, but all technicians from Hobaica couldn't figure out what was wrong with our system or even claimed that it was working properly. Our system could not maintain the set temperature during the afternoons and was constantly running, causing abnormally high electrical bills. Finally, after multiple technician visits, Binh T came and found out that the blower motor was not programmed properly and replaced it with a new one for the "third" time. Our AC is finally blowing sufficient amount of air from the vents!! Thank you so much, Binh T, for being professional and knowledgeable on this matter! We cannot thank you more.

Travis did a great job replacing the Moen cartridge in my shower. He even offered to install the escutcheon, stop tube and handle that I expected to do myself. I appreciated that. Travis is professional, does high quality work and is an overall great guy to work with. It was a job well done.

Travis did an exceptional job of installing my new WiFi thermostat and made sure everything worked before he finished the job.
