Are Heat Pumps Effective in Arizona Weather

The Sun Valley climate is hot in the summer with mild winters. In Arizona, the heat pump could likely be classified as the perfect home comfort solution. Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling is a proven leader in the local HVAC industry. Our technicians are highly trained and capable of doing a heat pump installation for you.

Why Choose a Heat Pump?

It both heats and cools your Arizona home, making it both versatile and economical, since one system can do it all. They are relatively easy to install for a skilled HVAC technician. Compared to single use units, the upfront costs are a little higher, but not enough to discount using one for your home comfort system.

They work very well when colder temperatures are above 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the Fountain Hills area temperatures rarely fall below 40 degrees, it is a great home heating option. 

The technology behind the heat pump’s operation relies on refrigerant running through evaporator coils to either heat or cool the air as needed. The air is then transferred into the living spaces via a ductwork system. There are also ductless heat pumps, which use the same process but require no ductwork. Shadrach’s Comfort Specialists can help you decide which option may work best for you.

Another big plus for heat pumps is they operate with electricity, a readily available residential energy source, compared to a furnace, which requires fossil fuels like oil or gas. An electric heat pump is a clean energy source with little carbon emissions, making it an environmentally friendly HVAC option.
