When you need to replace the air conditioning system in your Phoenix area home, you may want to consider replacing both with a heat pump.
A furnace uses energy to generate warmth by heating the air, but a heat pump extracts heat from the air and transfers it from one place to another. As a result it uses far less energy.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heat pumps can both heat and cool a home for as little as one quarter the cost of a traditional heating and cooling system.
When you’re considering the options, it might be helpful to consider this list of heat pump advantages:
If you decide to install a heat pump, it’s important to get the proper size for your home. If it is too big or too small, it won’t work effectively, and you won’t save as much on your energy bills. It is important to consider factors such as your home’s foundation, the thickness of its walls, the insulation values, the energy efficiency of your windows, and your air filtration system when choosing a heat pump.
