You have several choices for heating your Arizona home, and the best option depends on:
The most common types of heating systems in Arizona are heat pumps and natural gas furnaces. If you are from another state, you might be familiar with other heating systems, such as propane furnaces, baseboard heat and steam radiant heat, but those are less common in the Phoenix area.
We also recommend Trane’s Air Scrubber and CleanEffects components, which reduce allergens, odors, and other irritants from the air in your home. We use these components in our Gilbert, Arizona, office, as well as in our own homes – we wouldn’t recommend them without using them ourselves.
A heat pump works in a similar way that a refrigerator works. It extracts heat from air and moves it elsewhere. So, in the winter, it extracts warmth from the outside air and pushes or transfers it into your home. In the summer, it works in reverse by extracting warm air from inside your home and moving it outside. Because it moves heat, rather than generating it, it’s more energy efficient.
Look for a heat pump that has a high SEER rating. The US Environmental Protection Agency created SEER ratings to help homeowners and businesses choose HVAC systems that are efficient and not expensive to operate.
Another factor to consider is heating season performance factor (HSPF), which is a measurement of the efficiency of the air source for heat pumps. The higher the HSPF, the more efficient the unit is.
Energy efficiency is an important consideration, but it shouldn’t be the deciding factor. Isley’s favors Trane heat pumps and packaged air-conditioning systems because they are reliable and durable in Arizona’s extreme heat. Learn more about Trane heat pumps and packaged air-conditioner units.
