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 came by today to perform routine maintenance on our air conditioners. He discovered one of the capacitors to be failing & was able to replace it quickly & efficiently. Now I can get through the summer without worries. Thanks Scott!

Hello, just a little note to tell you how great our Technicians were today.Ivan and Troy showed up a little ahead of schedule, met with us, checked out the work areas and got right to work. And they did a fantastic job! I thought I was going to hear all kinds of banging and all kinds of noise but instead it was just a little bit of noise and the cool sound of Ivan whistling... reminded me of my Dad, he always whistled to, it was great.Troy was also quietly working outside.Upon completion of the work Troy and Ivan showed us their work and how the new thermostat worked.They did a great job with the installation, very professional work! I've seen a few air conditioning/furnace installations over the years when building homes with my dad and cousin...and these two technicians (Ivan and Troy) are obviously very good at what they do, and very good with the customer service experience they exhibited to us!!And personally I think they both definitely deserve a raise!!! And no, they didn't ask me to say this, LOL. It's obvious they're humble guys that would never ask for something like this, but they definitely deserve a raise...at minimum some fantastic kudos to some great Hobiaca Technicians!Kudos to Ivan and Troy for a job very well done!Thank you,Jack and Jackie Guzman11/11/2021
