Energy Saving Tips for Summer

5 Tips For Energy-Efficient Cooling In Hot Temperatures

You don’t need to be told that it gets hot during the Phoenix summer, but did you know that air conditioning accounts for over half of your energy usage when temperatures are high? Hobaica has five energy saving tips for you this summer, so you can stay comfortable without paying high energy bills. Added bonus—we can also prevent expensive breakdowns by cleaning and servicing an overworked AC system. 

Check Out These 5 Ways to Decrease Energy Usage & Prevent Costly Repairs During Extremely High Temperatures

1. Regularly Replace Air Filters

When filters are filled with dust and debris, the airflow in your home’s AC and duct system is partially blocked. This forces your system to waste energy and work unnecessarily hard to push air through your home. New filters allow for clean air and efficient airflow.

2. Upgrade or Update Your Thermostat For Summer Updating your programmable thermostat to the most energy-efficient temperatures for summer cooling will ensure that your home is comfortable while using as little energy as possible. And instead of constantly having to remember to adjust your thermostat as you’re coming and going from your home, you can set it once based on your daily schedule and forget it.

Most programmable thermostats will even allow you to raise the temperature while you are out of town and reduce the temperature back down to your ideal comfort level prior to your return, all from your smartphone. These convenient features allow you to save money without compromising your comfort and it doesn’t get much better than that! 

3. Ensure Your AC Unit Is Correctly Sized

When you are considering a new AC unit installation make sure the licensed HVAC company doing the work is reliable and factors in your space’s unique cooling needs when making a unit recommendation. Both oversized and undersized units can result in inefficient cooling and may increase the chances of surprise breakdowns.

4. Schedule Regular Maintenance

When you have a qualified professional AC technician regularly maintain your air conditioning system, you’ll greatly reduce chances of surprise malfunctions. This is because the technician will be able to find issues and preemptively fix them before they ruin your AC system. Regular maintenance will also keep your system working at optimal efficiency, which extends the lifespan of the unit and keeps your energy costs lower.

5. Use Fans For a Cooling Effect

Fans create a wind chill effect that makes air feel cooler than it actually is, making them a great way to cool down without having to adjust the temperature on your thermostat. In fact, the National Resource Defense Council states that using a ceiling fan can make a room feel up to 10° colder while only using 10% of the energy used by a central AC unit. Remember to turn fans off if you are not using the room so as not to waste electricity.

Use these helpful tips to maximize your AC system’s performance on hot spring and summer days so you can spend less on energy bills and avoid costly repairs from surprise breakdowns. Call Hobaica today at (602) 633-9555 with any questions or to schedule AC maintenance or installation.

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.
