Your Programmable Thermostat is One of Your Best Assets to Save Money!

With rising energy costs, most Phoenix residents are taking steps to boost the energy efficiency of their homes.  Some are going as far as to upgrade their HVAC system.  However, one of the most important steps is to replace the old manual thermostat using a programmable model.  Then program your thermostat for the greatest reduction in energy consumption.

If you make this simple switch and program your thermostat properly, it is possible to boost the energy savings even more.  Taking a few minutes to learn how to program your thermostat will allow you take advantage of these additional energy savings.

-The program selected should keep the temperatures set at the higher energy saving setting for a minimum of eight hours at a time.  Normally, this is possible during the day when everyone is gone as well as at night while everyone sleeps.  A government study shows that raising the temperature by one degree saves you 1% each year on the cost of energy; however, the savings are lost if the temperature change is not maintained for a minimum of eight hours.

-Avoid overriding the programmed settings just to get a little more cool air in the home if the day is particularly hot.  All programmable thermostats allow the occupants to temporarily make a temperature adjustment to the desired level.  Once the temperature inside is at the particular comfort level, let the device return to the preset program.  Overrides can result in using a lot of energy and are often avoidable if the owner takes the time to manually condition the home’s air.

-When there are plans to be away from home for two or more days when the AC is needed, be sure to program your thermostat to keep the space much warmer than normal.  Make sure that temperatures remain low enough to prevent the growth of mold or other problems caused by a moisture buildup.  If unsure of a safe setting that can still save you money when away from home, talk with an HVAC contractor.

-Avoid setting the thermostat at a ridiculously low setting in an attempt to cool the home quicker.  The system will not cool any faster set at 40 degrees than it will set at 75.  You have broke the routine designed to save money.  By planning in advance and taking the time to program your thermostat, you can ensure that cooling bills remain affordable.

While the basic programmable thermostats often work great to reduce the cooling bills, consumers may also want to consider a newer model that offers even more precision control.  A smart thermostat allows you to monitor the comfort system and program your thermostat while away from home, using a computer connected to the internet or even your smart phone.

Scott Dale was very professional. He answered our concerns and questions. He took time to explain the necessity of the repairs. Just by talking to him, we felt confident with him doing the repairs.

Hobaica has now installed 2 ac units for us-each time they have been exceptional to work with. They are fair and honest with their quotes. Andy Hobaica is always available to his customers and they may have the friendliest and most competent employees. I highly recommend.Just had Hobaica come out to fix an old unit, bedroom side of house-it’s been 111-115 degrees. Ryan W came out on Fri evening to evaluate and he was back on Mon to fix! Thanks Ryan, greatly appreciated

We called Hobaica for HVAC repair and they came out the same day, after waiting for 2 other companies to call back after 3 days (and still no call). Ron J. was on time, quickly diagnosed the problem and had our AC fixed quickly. We will use them again and highly recommend them!

Travis Vanau was our technician and he was awesome!! We have had an AC company come out now twice through our home warranty and both times have been told everything was fine. Travis was here for maybe 15-20 minutes and informed us that it looks like we have an AC leak, and walked us through the necessary steps for proper repair. He did a recharge for us and is coming back later this week to better identify the potential leak in our system! We can’t thank you enough, Travis!

Hobaica came out on June 8th and 11th, 2021. The first visit was for a/c seasonal maintenance. Scott Dale did a great job explaining what might be happening with an intermittent fan noise. I'm going to record it on video the next time it happens, and call them.The second visit was to install a new hose bib. I asked for a quote during Scott's visit, and decided to book it for later in the week. Travis Vonau arrived on Friday and took care of it. All of the Hobaica team members are knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks!

Last week Ryan Waters was our technician sent to do routine maintenance work on our a/c unit. He arrived within the time stated. He was very courteous when we spoke to him & promptly got to work. When he finished he explained what he had done & some further issue that needed to be addressed. He put in a work order & he was back out this week to complete the service. We are extremely happy with Hobaica & Mr Waters. Ryan Waters is an excellent technician, very knowledgeable, friendly & professional.
