In theory, this is a statement of fact, as the general purpose of these systems is to remove hot air from inside a home, chill this air though a cooling process and return it to the home to reduce the temperature. However, there are two unique styles of AC systems in Arizona that have individual benefits that allow home owners to maximize indoor comfort. In order to determine which type of system is best for you, it’s important to outline the benefits of rooftop air conditioners vs a side-yard air conditioner.

Top Summer Air Conditioning Tips To Keep Your Energy Bills Cool

By // 2014.08.19

AC Tips for summerOne of the constant realities of life in Arizona is that during the summer the monthly energy bills skyrocket. There are many reasons for this but mostly it’s attributed to the additional resources needed to keep a home in Arizona cool during the hot summer months. There are a few things, however, you can do inside your home every month to reduce the internal temperature and the amount of energy needed to power your AC systems. Here are a few AC tips for summer that are sure to save you a pretty penny each month on your utility bills.

3 Tips To Keep The Monthly Bills Low

Tip #1 – Depend On Those Window Shades

Most homeowners in Arizona have two forms of window protection inside their homes: shades and blinds. Using blinds to keep direct sunlight from entering your home has been shown to reduce your indoor temperature up to 10 degrees in mid-summer. However, did you know that by adding a sunshade, such as a window treatment, drapes or even a window tint could further reduce your internal home temperature another 5-10 degrees? This is why we recommend you make sure every window in your home has some sort of window treatment that will reduce the amount of direct sunlight entering your home.

If you want to ensure your home doesn’t look like a dungeon, try opening your blinds to windows that are not directly in the sunlight then switching later in the day to the other windows.

Tip #1 – Replace those Air Filters Frequently

Most homes in Arizona have central air conditioning installed. This requires the use of two different parts to keep a home cool:

  • The outside HVAC system (where the air is filtered and cooled)
  • The inside fan (designed to circulate warm air from the home into the outside system and then return cool air into the home).

In each component there are filters designed to trap dirt, dust, debris and other contaminants that can enter the air conditioner and impact indoor air quality. Since dust and dirt are often kicked up with high winds we experience in summer, and your AC system runs more frequently, it’s recommended to replace indoor air filters monthly in summertime. This will reduce the amount of drag that the AC unit experiences in summer, and allow the units to circulate air efficiently. The result is that the AC unit will not have to run as long to keep your home cool – saving you money on monthly utility bills too.
