3 Reasons Why Heat Pumps Are a Good Investment
Heat pumps continue to expand into homes as more people discover their numerous advantages. They have become particularly common in hot climates like Arizona’s, where their effective air conditioning power combined with their capability to handle mild winters make them perfect for year-round comfort.
Installing a heat pump is an excellent investment for your next air conditioning/heating installation. We’ll list three reasons why you should put a heat pump at the top of your shopping list when it comes to keeping your home comfortable any day of the year.

3 reasons why heat pumps are a good investment:
1. They work as both heaters and air conditioners
The basic operation of a heat pump makes it a good investment because it takes care of two comfort issues in a single unit: heating and cooling. This means you don’t need to purchase a separate heater, like a furnace, along with an air conditioner. A heat pump also saves space and provides a convenience you won’t find in other systems.
2. They’re highly energy-efficient in heating mode
Although heat pumps can sometimes struggle with providing heat in extreme low temperatures (which are rarely an issue in Arizona), they have superior energy efficiency in heating mode compared to fuel-burning systems like furnaces. Furnaces must burn fuel to create heat, but by comparison a heat pump only uses a small amount of electricity to run its mechanical components in order to move heat. Studies have shown that a family of four switching from a furnace to a heat pump can save up to 30% off their heating bills over a winter.
3. They can increase a home’s value
The growing popularity of heat pumps—especially in Arizona, where they ideally suit the climate—makes them valuable additions to a home. The advantages of a home with an energy-efficient, safe, space-saving heating and cooling system already installed will give it the edge over homes that don’t have such advantages.
There are many other advantages to heat pumps, such as safety and humidity control.

I have been with Goettl Air in Tucson for years and have always had complete confidence in their maintenance service. The technicians are knowledgeable and pleasant, on time, and work in an efficient and timely manner. They explain what they are doing and will make recommendations if a repair is warranted. I have purchased several preventive parts and find that my yearly inspections have been great — with little or no repair in the past years. I do like the option of a yearly maintenance contract. Having yearly maintenance keeps my furnace and air conditioner running efficiently. I would definitely recommend Goettl Air Conditioning.
