High Temperatures cause Air Conditioners to work harder to cool your home.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
This past summer has been a rough one for Air Care Cooling & Heating's customers in Mesa, Arizona. Record high temperatures have scorched Arizona, causing devastating wildfires and unsafe conditions for many residents. When temperatures are as high as they have been, in home conditions can be dangerous without proper working air conditioners. An older air conditioner will struggle in the extremes, unable to really pull the heat out of the house and cool you down.
Every summer, residents in hot climates are warned of leaving children or pets in cars, because car interiors can quickly absorb heat and spike to dangerous temperatures. The same principle applies in a home, though on a smaller scale. While having black out blinds or heavy curtains help keep out the dangerous sun, without an air conditioning unit to keep the air cool and circulating, temperatures inside the home can become dangerously warm, especially to young children and seniors. High, high temperatures might just be the best reminder that it is time for a new a/c unit in Mesa keep the family safe and cool.
When it’s time to replace your home air conditioning system, it’s no more apparent than when the temperatures soar past one hundred and well into the triple digits. After several years of hard use, many of the lower quality air conditioning units have a hard time coping in the Arizona heat. When that happens, Mesa homeowners will notice their homes are harder to keep cool, energy bills will increase, and their air conditioner could be constantly running just to keep up.
These record high temperatures in Mesa, Arizona make it imperative to have an air conditioning unit that cools the home while still keeping bills down. While no one likes having to replace their condenser in the middle of an incredible heat wave, doing so can make the rest of the summer so much cooler and more comfortable indoors.
In order to effectively battle such high temperatures at an affordable energy cost, consumers should look for an air conditioning unit that is Energy Star or has a high SEER rating. Depending on home size and budget, SEER ratings above 15 and higher can help homeowners save money even with having to purchase a new cooling unit. In fact, many energy efficient air conditioning units are eligible for tax credits and rebates to make them even more affordable, and with the long, hot, humid summer ahead still, Mesa customers can really take advantage of a new unit to make their summer far more comfortable.
