My annual HVAC service appointment is already set

Last Summer’s record-breaking heat taught me a valuable lesson.

I’ll never put off scheduling an appointment for HVAC service.

In fact, I’ve already scheduled my HVAC maintenance for the middle of this month, and it’s only early March. I decided to postpone my service appointment last Summer because I was traveling a lot. Additionally, it can be challenging to locate HVAC service providers in Phoenix who aren’t booked solid during the warmer months. In fact, some service providers are so busy that there may be a two-week wait for assistance. If the A/C unit is broken, that’s an even bigger problem, especially if your health is already compromised. It could literally mean life or death to wait longer than two days for an HVAC provider to fix an air conditioner. Fans and portable air conditioners could, of course, be short-term fixes, but they have their limitations. A portable air conditioner can hardly keep the house cool when it is 95 degrees at night and 110 degrees during the day. Furthermore, it is unfair to hold the HVAC service providers accountable for their inability to fix these A/C units quickly because they are doing everything in their power to reach everyone. Due to a ruling that air conditioning is an essential service, Phoenix renters have certain rights when it comes to air conditioning. This law offers tenants some protection, but if they can’t find a technician to do the work, it won’t help them at all. Personally, I hope I never have to deal with a broken air conditioner because that is much worse than a delay in getting HVAC service.

The solution to high energy bills could be solar panels

Even though I haven’t completely come around to the idea of using solar energy, I might be forced to do so if the temperatures keep breaking records

We went through one of Phoenix’s hottest months in recent memory a couple of years ago. For more than 50 straight days, the outside temperature increased by about 100 degrees. It goes without saying that the air conditioner will likely be running nearly constantly when it’s hot outside. And I usually keep my house at a comfortable 72 degrees. So it comes as no surprise that I spent close to $300 every month to maintain the highest level of comfort in my home. The only saving grace was that since we didn’t use the heat as much as we did the air conditioner that year, my energy bill during the Winter dropped to about $100. My energy bill is significantly lower than someone with a 5- or 6-bedroom home because I live in a 3-bedroom house. The cost for running their air conditioning that year was probably close to $500 per month for those homeowners. With prices like these, it’s understandable why more and more people are choosing to switch to solar power. According to what I’ve read, solar energy is being promoted as a superior choice and can eliminate the cost of the monthly energy bill. Even though I haven’t completely come around to the idea of using solar energy, I might be forced to do so if the temperatures keep breaking records. While living in Phoenix, the solar might just be my best option as long as it can continuously power my air conditioner. The good news is that we receive plenty of sunshine, so setting up solar panels might just be a wise decision.

I'll soon need to replace my 12-year-old air conditioner

Have you heard that Phoenix has been named one of the top destinations to visit in the Spring? Along with fantastic dining, the city hosts a lot of events and festivals.

During the Spring, the temperature is typically in the low to mid-70s, making it the ideal time of year for outdoor activities.

The weather is also pleasant during this time. In spite of the fact that spring may be the ideal season to travel, there are still a ton of things to do in the summer, even when it is extremely hot outside. There are many bars and eateries in our area where patrons can enjoy their meal in a relaxing, cool environment. Our hotels are fantastic because they offer a lot of air-conditioned spaces for cooling off. As a result of her dislike of the heat, my mother was hesitant to visit Phoenix in the summer last year when I asked her to. However, I was able to persuade her to go because I reserved a few nights at the Marriott Phoenix Resort Tempe at The Buttes. This resort is fantastic because it provides top-notch amenities, and the best part was that my mom completely forgot about the heat outside. She enjoyed the resort’s spa and restaurants in addition to the amazing pool. It is crucial for Phoenix to have comfortable visitor-friendly air-conditioned spaces because this will draw tourists to the city during the summer. During the warmer months, I personally make the most of these spaces. Additionally, my house has excellent air conditioning, making it my top choice for refuge when the weather is miserable outside.

I must soon replace my 12-year-old air conditioner

The varied terrain that surrounds Phoenix is one of the reasons I enjoy living here.

There is the desert, of course, but there are also mountains all around us, so we have fantastic hiking trails.

Every year, a large number of tourists arrive in Phoenix to take advantage of the pleasant climate, delectable cuisine, and amazing shops, galleries, and other attractions. Even though tourists only spend a brief amount of time in the city, they only get a brief impression of Phoenix. Living in a desert environment has its difficulties. One of them involves having adequate air conditioning in order for your home to be comfortable. If you didn’t know, Phoenix has a sizable HVAC industry because having air conditioning is a requirement there. Without the comfort of air conditioning, it would be difficult to endure the sweltering temperatures outside. I personally consider my air conditioner to be one of the most significant appliances I own, so I take extra care to keep it in top working order. I always make sure to schedule the unit’s maintenance at least once a year. The unit is now getting older, so I’ve been scheduling service twice a year. An air conditioner would typically last 15 to 25 years in a typical climate, but due to Phoenix’s extreme weather, most are only given 10 to 15 years to live. Since my air conditioner is about 12 years old, I will probably need to replace it in the next year or two. The shorter lifespan is due to more wear and tear on the unit, but living in a scorchingly hot city like Phoenix, Arizona, comes with the territory.

Due to my air conditioner, my energy bill increased

In order to try to keep my home comfortable, I will need to use a lot more energy if the outside temperature rises to 110 degrees and I try to run my air conditioner at 76 degrees

It’s no secret that Phoenix, also known as the Valley of the Sun, is located in the middle of a desert. Naturally, it should be hot there given that it is in the middle of a desert. And yes, it takes a little while to get used to the dry heat in Phoenix. Even though many of us have learned to love the heat and have even developed strategies for avoiding it, there are times when it gets to be too much to bear. We had one of the hottest months on record since 1896 a few summers ago. The hottest month of the year, with an average temperature of 96 degrees, is usually July. However, over 50 days in August of the previous year, two years ago, the temperature reached triple digits. To say those temperatures were brutal would be an understatement; there are no adequate words to convey how miserable it was outside. Consequently, it makes sense. Unfortunately, my utility bill showed increased usage because I spent the majority of that month indoors in the air conditioning. In fact, because I used my air conditioner so frequently during that Summer, my energy bill increased by almost $30 a month. I keep my thermostat set at 76 degrees in the summer when the highs are usually around 96 degrees. In order to try to keep my home comfortable, I will need to use a lot more energy if the outside temperature rises to 110 degrees and I try to run my air conditioner at 76 degrees. I am therefore grateful that I have air conditioning even though I paid significantly more because I used more energy that Summer. If I didn’t, I’m not sure how I would have survived the summer in Phoenix.
