Arizona AC Energy Consumption Exceeds National Average

Global Warming Plot Of NASA GISS DataRising Arizona Temperatures Increase Arizona AC Energy Consumption To Twenty-Five Percent

From the U.S. Energy Information Administrations “Quick Facts” report concerning the Arizona state profile: 25-percent of the Arizona home energy consumption goes into home air conditioning (1). That’s four times the national average for energy usage directed into home cooling. On the plus side, heating Arizona households require less energy than the national average. In fact, the yearly average energy usage in Arizona homes runs at 26% less Btu of energy per home than does the typical U.S. home.

Then comes another negative side. The bulk of the consumed household energy goes toward Arizona AC equipment, equipment that typically operates from electricity, a relatively expensive means of creating energy. Furthermore, the typical Arizona household puts out around $1,700 per year on electricity. That’s roughly 14,000 kilowatt-hours consumed per home. According to the EIA report, more than 90% of Arizona households reap the benefits of installed and functional air conditioning — and 86% of those units are central AC systems.

Note that the expenses and energy consumption is averaged based upon an average Arizona home square footage of 1,798 feet. Larger homes require more cooling performance at a higher rate of energy consumption.

What Rising Temperatures Means To Your AC Lifespan

If purchased as a reputable manufacturer’s brand name and installed by a reputable and experienced HVAC installation company, you can expect 15 to 20 years lifespan from a central air conditioning system (2). But it is not just about the type of equipment and the quality of the installation. Usage and maintenance also play a major role in the lifespan of your home cooling system. And the say the least: Arizona AC usage leaps high above the national average.

Battling year after year of exceptionally smoking summers accelerates the rate of wear and tear on any home cooling system. However, you can help reduce the labors of the unit.

It begins by making certain that your unit is right-sized for your Arizona home. Ask your Arizona home AC expert about two-stage air conditioning system. Due to less on-and-off cycling, the two stage units tend to last longer than other type central units.

More tips…

  • Chose an established, reliable and experienced Arizona AC installation company
  • Follow up with routine maintenance
  • Change the air filter before it becomes a problem
  • Take care of your outside condensing unit
  • Schedule an annual maintenance plan with your local dealer.

 Climate Change Affecting Arizona AC Lifespan

According to the 2013 State of Arizona Hazard Mitigation Plan Risk Assessment, the on-going effects of climate change are evoking increased temperatures throughout the American southwest. Arizona is no exception. Since 1895, summer temperatures have been on the rise, topping the 20th century average summer after summer throughout this century. 100-plus degree days come more and more often. The 1981-2010 maximum July temperature in Phoenix and surrounding areas comes in at 110-plus.

Yet metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona remains among the fastest-growing urban regions in the U.S.. This adds to theLiving with asthma cover increase in temperatures. By the year 2000, the nighttime minimum central Phoenix temperature was up by 9 degrees F. All of it comes together in a cascading effect that impacts animal, plants and humans, which in turn means that more and more demand is placed on your in-home Arizona AC system.

But rolling back the effects of climate change is going to be a long slow process. In the mean time, you still need to stay cool. So take care of existing air conditioning system, and when the repairs begin to outweigh the value of the unit, call American Cooling and Heating for an immediate and cost-effective cooling system replacement.

Greenhouse Gases Catch 22, Obama Administration Confronts HFCs

global warming - greenhouse gases catch 22Next Step Obama Administration Effort To Reduce Greenhouse Gases Catch 22 Problems

Greenhouse gases Catch 22, what are the issues? The battle to reduce climate change has caused many complications in the way Americans and the world perceive the costs of owning and operating air conditioning and refrigerant equipment. And when the efforts to reduce greenhouse gases result in fixes that need fixing, some might question the need for any kind of fix.

I’m not taking sides in the arguments for or against global warming. That’s a different subject. But I do want to point out a simple Catch 22 that climate change experts and the White House rule makers should keep in mind when evoking new laws that force major expenses on homeowners, business owners and the heating and cooling industry as a whole. Replacing a home air conditioning system can be expensive. And no one wants to to hear about HFCs problems three years after the installation..   

Obama Administration and the EPA Battleground

On September 16, 2014 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moved into the next phase of the Obama Administrations commitment toward curbing greenhouse gases. Tagged as a “fresh” approach in the ongoing battle to reduce hydroflourocarbons (HFCs), the White House has set focus on a handful of global industries. The goal is twofold:

  1. Educate the private sector concerning the risk of HFCs associated usage in modern refrigerators and air conditioners
  2. Develop and deploy alternative technologies for heating and cooling resources.

Typically defined as stronger than CO2 by as much as 10,000 times, HFCs greenhouse gases are considered a major contributor to worldwide climate change. The products come about in a sort of control greenhouse gases Catch 22 arrangement wherein HFCs chemicals were introduced as a replacement for refrigerant and air-conditioning freon back in the 1990s.

The Catch: Although HFCs products cause no harm to the Earth’s ozone layer they are yet major contributors to climate change. So it’s a solution wherein we fix one thing with something that also ends up needing a fix. But what drives the efforts?

According to the 2013 Climate Analytics reports, not curbing greenhouse gases associated with HFC emission will result in a related climate change problem tripled in size by 2030 (1). On the other hand, corrective reduction in HFC gases bears the hope of decreasing global temperature by ½ degree before 2050. Seems a long wait and lots of work for ½ degree. One can only hope that this fix does not result in yet another threat from a different angle.

In seeking to illustrate the expected result-to-action goals, the Obama Administration confronts HFCs by providing industry and public with the following examples:

  • A reduction in HFC related greenhouse gases such as R-134a as used in refrigerant and air conditioning equipment could produce a 1.5% decrease from greenhouse gases as measured in 2010.
  • Increased management and leak control in supermarkets could eliminate 27-million metric tons of carbon dioxide. This is a per year reduction that can reduce processing costs as well as climate-changing gas emissions.

Greenhouse Gases Catch 22

As defined by Merriam-Webster, the term “Catch 22” pertains to a difficult situation wherein there can be uncovered no simple, easy or possible solution. It’s a “problematic situation for which the only solution is denied by a circumstance inherent in the problem. (2)” Furthermore, any efforts to resolve the problem tend to result in an opposite effect of what is intended.

While I don’t deny the need to address global warming, climate change, and the need for curbing greenhouse gases, I wonder if we are once again getting ready to take on another climate change Catch 22? As in past efforts to management climate control, the answer to that question may be a while in coming. Right now, the EPA plans to publish a new list of approved fluorinated and non-fluorinated chemicals to be used in heating, cooling, refrigerant and other related HFCs dependent industries. So once again the nation will invest in workshops, equipment and upgrades to help the industry move away from HFCs.

Is it just another greenhouse gases Catch 22? Thoughts, views and opinions are welcome.

Climate of Fear and Global Warming – From the Viewpoint of Thomas Gale Moore

Climate of Fear Author Thomas MooreThomas Gale Moore, Author of “Climate of Fear: Why We Shouldn’t Worry About Global Warming”

In a nation already gutted by fear tactics, a climate of fear seems the natural by-product of politics and global warming. With daily claims that the climate is changing and that immediate preventative action is the only way to divert the world from a course of certain disaster, the popular media leads the bandwagon of national panic. The “prophets” of global warming, including Bert Bolin, Robert Watson and Benjamin Santer proclaim the dangers of human-triggered emission of greenhouse gases. And the prestigious news leaders such as Scientific American and the Public Broadcasting System fuel the flames by exciting the fear that provides a world of politicians with new ways for amassing voters and supporters.

But not everyone follows the same drumbeat. In the written works of Thomas Gale Moore, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, the picture of global warming and world disaster takes on a different color. From Mr. Moore’s point of view: Policies designed to “slash the emission of greenhouse gases,” may result in a worldwide recession accompanied by unnecessary increases in unemployment, civil turbulence and international strain on and between the nations.

As the author of “Climate of Fear: Why We Shouldn’t Worry About Global Warming,” Mr. Moore boldly addresses the flip side of changing climate and the assumed associated complications (1).


Who Is Thomas Gale Moore and Why Is “Climate of Fear” A Worthwhile Read?

As a specialist in many fields, including studies pertaining to environmental conditions, Thomas Gale Moore has written and published books on privatization, stock market margins, wage management and global warming. Along with “Climate of Fear,” Mr. Moore is also the author of “Health and Amenity Effects of Global Warming.” He has actually published over thirty articles dealing with climate change and the dangers “so-called” of global warming.

His career began in the mid 1950s when he attended MIT followed by a four-year stint in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. In 1957, Mr. Moore completed the requirements for a B.A. degree at George Washing University. He went on to attend the University of Chicago between 1950 and 1961 where he earned his M.A. and a Ph. D. in economics.

Between 1985 and 1989, Thomas Gale Moore served on the Council on Economic Advisers as established by then President Ronald Reagan (2). As acting supervisor to a workforce of economists designated to notify Mr. Regan on issues pertaining to:

· Agriculture
· Environmental Conditions
· Tax Issues
· U.S. Health Situations
· AND More,

Thomas Moore established himself as a major player in U.S. and world affairs. Earlier national service positions include the role of Senior Staff Economist during a 1968 to 1970 stint in regulatory and industrialized business issues. Moore has also served as Assistant Professor at the Carnegie Institute of Technology and later as Professor of Economics at Michigan State University. His published works have appeared in academic journals, legal and political publications and various outlets of the popular press.

In “Climate of Fear: Why We Shouldn’t Worry About Global Warming” Mr. Moore addresses the risks associated with following the advice of those who advocate immediate andglobal warming all-inclusive U.S. focus on managing and controlling perceived human-triggered changes in climate. According to Mr. Moore, the current and proposed U.S. policies designed to reduce emissions impose a serious threat on the resources for energy that drive our economy, our work options and even our automobiles. Furthermore, the cost for heating and cooling our homes will increase. Home comfort levels will suffer. Travel will decrease. And huge amounts of financial output will be wasted on unproven efforts to curve the use of fossil fuels.

In the words of Mr. Moore, “Cost/benefit analysis constitutes the only rational approach,” to managing the effects “so-called” of global warming. We do not need to press forward with a climate of fear, but rather with a voice of reason.
