How Efficient Are Electric Air Source Heat Pumps in Arizona?
Temperatures in the Fountain Hills, Arizona area range from oppressively hot during the summer months to cool in the winter. It’s rare for the mercury to dip below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, making electric source heat pumps an efficient choice for total home comfort in the Valley of the Sun. An electric air source heat pump is a versatile option for heating and cooling. You can have both with just one piece of equipment. In the winter, hot air will be transferred inside to heat the space. During the summer, the heat pump will easily transfer hot air to the outside, keeping your home cool and comfortable all season long.
Advantages to Electric Air Source Heat Pumps
According to statistics from Energy.com, an air source heat pump requires a relatively minimal amount of electricity to operate and can deliver approximately 1.5 to 3 times more heat-energy into a home than the amount of electric-energy it utilizes. Since the energy needed to operate a heat pump is low, it’s likely you’ll experience lower utility costs even during the first year of use. With its overall efficiency, probable cost savings, adaptability and versatility, the heat pump is an excellent choice for Arizona homeowners.
Another big plus for current homeowners who are exploring options to replace an outdated or broken HVAC system is that a heat pump can be retrofitted into most existing homes with little difficulty. Some considerations to ensure you’re maximizing the efficiency of the unit are upgrading or fortifying your insulation where needed and consulting a reputable company like Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling to be sure the size of the unit is accurately matched to the size of your home (improper sizing can mean huge energy losses, increased operating costs and uneven heating or cooling).
Aside from the advantages we’ve already mentioned, they are generally much quieter than furnaces. In fact, you may not even realize it’s on! Don’t worry if you have no existing ductwork in your home. A ductless mini-split electric air source heat pump can be just the ticket to keep your Arizona home cozy all year long.
