If you are like most residents in Phoenix, AZ you run your HVAC system most of the year. During the hot, humid months of the summer, it may seem as through your air conditioner is constantly running as you try to beat the Arizona heat. While the winter months may be more mild, often chilly nights require the use of the heater for comfort. Spring and fall months can vary in temperature significantly, and it’s not uncommon to run the air conditioner one day and the heater the next. With year-round use of your HVAC system, it makes sense that you would want to know how to use it more energy efficiently.
First, in order to prevent air conditioning and heating repair and to ensure your system operates at peak performance, regular maintenance on the unit is recommended annually. Often, servicing the AC in the spring months before you require daily use of the system and servicing the heating unit in the fall months can ensure your system is the most energy efficient it can be. This can prevent the need for air conditioning and heating repair and help to keep your energy costs lower, too.
If you are running an outdated unit, air conditioning and heating installation may be of use to you. Older models are not designed with energy efficiency in mind. This combined with the fact that models simply become less effective over time as their components age makes air conditioning and heating installation of a new HVAC unit a great idea. You may find that the installation of one of the most energy efficient models on the market can save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs each year.
