Because we live in a pretty arid climate, the evaporative cooler is actually a very good option for cooling homes in our area. An evaporative, or swamp, cooler is a system that uses moisture in order to help cool your home. It uses a special cooling agent that allows water to evaporate at much lower temperatures than normal. Warm air moves over saturated pads in the system, and water immediately begins to evaporate. Fans then blow air cooled by the evaporation process into the living space. This method of residential cooling uses very little electricity, and can even help to keep the air in your home sufficiently humidified.
Heat pumps, too, are great for our environment. Obviously, living in Arizona means that you are going to be using your air conditioning system a lot more than you do your heater. That doesn’t mean, though, that you are never going to have cause for warming your home. With a heat pump, you get a heater and an air conditioner all in one system. During the winter season, the heat pump makes use of existing heat in the air outside in order to very efficiently heat a home, which is ideal for our warm climate.
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless heating and cooling systems utilize heat pump technology in order to offer the same benefits as a heat pump. However, they are also able to distribute conditioned air throughout one’s home without the use of ductwork. That helps them to avoid issues with inefficiency or air quality that may result from leaky ductwork, while also making zoned heating and cooling easy to exploit.
