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.

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.
