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.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
