This summer's unprecedented high temperatures have helped shatter records for electricity use across the Valley. As we all cranked up our air conditioners on June 20 - when Phoenix hit a record 119 degrees - Arizona's three largest utilities all broke records for most simultaneous electricity use. 

Weather conditions like these - in addition to an overly active monsoon season - can wreak havoc on our air conditioning systems, and our energy bills. Here are three tips from REEis Home Performance to help keep you cool and comfortable, and keep your A/C running more efficiently.

Air Flow
Studies have shown that the average home loses 43% of its heating and cooling delivery due to poorly installed or designed duct systems. Fixing your home's air flow and air distribution can have a dramatic impact on your home's comfort and energy efficiency. 

Insulation is an important part of a home's performance. Insulation works with other building components to maintain comfort while keeping the cost of heating and cooling down. Without proper heat transfer management, a home's performance will be dramatically impacted.

New Equipment
Newer HVAC equipment is significantly more energy efficient than older equipment. And did you know that SRP's Cool Cash Rebate Program provides as much as $800 back when you install a new qualifying high-efficiency system? As an APS and SRP Qualified Contractor since 2010, REEis can not only replace you're A/C unit - if that's what's needed - but they will also handle all the testing required to get your rebates from the utility companies and facilitate the details on your behalf.
