Stay Cool In High Temperatures With These Tips

2018 05 10 1

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.

Scott Dale was very professional and knowledgeable during an inspection of my HVAC system. I was very comfortable during his visit and he shared helpful information and pictures and patiently answered all of my questions. I highly recommend Scott and appreciate having a technician of his caliber representing Hobaica.

Saw Mike Varela outside a neighbors house. Stopped what he was doing to answer my 100 questions lol. Definitely a difference from past experiences with HVAC companies. Wanted to share my good experience. Would recommend to a friend.

All around super happy with my service - called and got an appointment to help with some pipe issues that same day. Brandon was great and while I hope to never have to use the service again, I would be giving them a call before anyone else! :)

Gabriel and Angel were great installing my new AC system. They showed up early and were professional and efficient the entire time. A slight electrical issue came up early, and they quickly had an electrician come out so the project would not run late. They took the time out to answer my questions and explained the steps they were taking during the install. My entire experience with this company and Gabriel and Angel in particular was positive. I would definitely refer them to others!

Hobaica is always great. I had an emergency plumbing situation today and they sent Simon out the same day and he fixed everything. What a relief! I highly recommend
