Solve Your Arizona Heating Problems with a Heat Pump

Monday, January 8th, 2024

We’re no strangers to chilly winters here in Phoenix, AZ. You need a reliable heating system to keep your home warm when temperatures plummet. However, many homeowners don’t place as much importance on the heating aspect of their HVAC system as they do on air conditioning.

Why Your Heat Pump Needs Maintenance Twice a Year

Sunday, October 15th, 2023

Although heat pumps have been around for a while, they’ve surged in popularity over the last several years. And so it’s understandable that many homeowners who own a heat pump have no idea that maintenance is supposed to happen twice a year. That’s because traditional central systems such as furnaces and air conditioners only need maintenance once a year.

The confusion is compounded by the fact that we live in Arizona where the cooling season is much longer than the heating season. Getting maintenance on a heat pump “every six months” makes perfect sense in areas that experience a new season every 3 months.
