Since 1912, Phoenix residents have successfully made it through every blazing hot summer. When Parker & Sons began providing HVAC services in 1974, they began to prove, time and time again, that anyone in the Phoenix area can live comfortably throughout some of the hottest months of the year. Even though the height of the summer is coming to a close for the majority of the country, Arizona summers can continue well into October. With that in mind, Parker & Sons representative Josh Kelly has decided to share some important tips on how to reduce energy expenditure.
“Our main focus is AC installation and repair,” said Kelly, “but we also like to help the whole community. Living in Arizona means that most households will be racking up a pretty large energy bill by the end of the month.”
In effect, Kelly states that being mindful of the following tips can assist in lowing the overall costs of your energy bill.
First, Kelly advises that people should begin to raise the temperature settings on their thermostats anywhere between 78-85 degrees while they are away. It’s also best to set your thermostat settings to “auto,” rather than “on.” By doing so, the unit’s fan will turn off every time the unit isn’t cooling down. “This can actually save most people around $20 a month… which isn’t a huge amount, but it certainly adds up after a while,” said Kelly.
Kelly has also commented on the importance of having the correct sized cooling unit in relation to the size of your home. Since Parker & Sons employees are trained with more than 40 years of combined expertise in HVAC services, Kelly pushes that “[Parker & Sons] spend a lot of time researching the different models and makes of different units on the market. We’ve installed thousands of units over the last few years, and we’ve always put a lot of effort into finding the best, energy-efficient units for our customers.” Kelly cites that if the unit is too large for your home, the unit will overwork itself, costing more money than necessary.
Parker & Sons is open year-round, and available 24 hours a day.
