In many parts of the country, keeping a home comfortable year-round usually involves solving issues that make the house too cold in the winter. While that’s not usually a concern when it comes to home renovation in Arizona, there are still some seasonal issues to address for properties in this region. In many cases, while the goal may be different, the approach will be similar. Whereas in colder regions the goal is to keep cold air (and snow, ice and other elements) out, in hotter areas like in this region, homeowners want to keep the outdoor heat from making the home’s temperatures unbearable.
Both goals can often be accomplished using the same tactics. For example, using energy-efficient windows and doors, along with carefully chosen insulation materials, can keep the elements and undesirable temperatures outsides, while allowing the indoor living space to remain comfortable.
Of course, it’s also important to make sure your home’s major components—such as HVAC systems—are all up-to-date and running properly. If they aren’t operating efficiently, or are old, outdated models, it may be worthwhile to replace them and upgrade, both for comfort and to help reduce utility costs.
