Maybe It’s Time to Consider a Heat Pump?


The summer is on its way out and is making way for the winter. While that can generally excite many people, because they can save plenty of money by not running their air conditioners quite as hard as they do inn the summer, it also means they need to turn on their old furnaces on the nights the temperatures drop.

Using a furnace in your home comes with its own set of problems—especially if your furnace is old, outdated, and in need of constant repairs. If you’re looking for a solution to keep your indoor temperatures more comfortable during the winters without the hassles that come with furnaces, you need to get a heat pump.

We will tell you about heat pumps so you can understand why they might be a better option for your home. And as always, if you’re looking for any HVAC services in Peoria, AZ, you can always get in touch with us.

What are heat pumps?

Heat pumps are a type of HVAC system that uses refrigerant to transfer heat from one area to another. During the winters, heat pumps extract heat from the outside and transfer it indoors using the refrigerant cycle. During the summers, the heat pump extracts the heat from indoors and transfers it out thus efficiently cooling the air in the house.

Is a heat pump right for our climate?

Heat pumps are actually perfect for our climate in Arizona. While the summers can get quite hot, our winters rarely ever get very cold. Winter in Arizona can sometimes feel like a second, somewhat mild summer on most days. However, when the temperatures do drop, you need a system that can provide you with adequate cooling without using too much energy. That makes heat pumps perfect.

Are heat pumps reliable?

Heat pumps are very reliable machines. They are less prone to breakdowns because they do not need to create heat themselves. Heat pumps rely on merely transferring heat from one location to another through the refrigerant flow in the system. They require less energy, and that means there is less strain on the system.

The fact that it does not create its own heat also means that your heat pump uses significantly less energy than traditional heating and cooling systems. Installing a unit might come with a high upfront cost, but it can operate throughout the year, keeping you cool in the summers and warm in the winters.
