Central A/C Units: Central A/C systems are the most common type of cooling system found in homes throughout the Valley. They provide cooling, dehumidification, air filtration, and air circulation. The components of a Central A/C system are a condenser, evaporator, and duct-system. A central system can last 10-15 years in the Arizona desert climate with routine maintenance.
Heat Pumps: Heat Pump units are another very common system found in Arizona. They’re similar to Central A/C systems but in addition to air conditioning they can also provide heating without any additional equipment. Heat Pumps are a very effective system for the Phoenix area climate and provide for an efficient solution to heating and cooling demands.
Gas Furnaces: Gas Furnaces use natural gas for effective heating. They are designed to quickly and efficiently warm the indoor air. Homes that use gas heat can save on utility bills with an energy-efficient gas furnace.
Packaged Units: Packaged units are a self-contained, all-in-one, type of system that are typically installed on rooftops. The most common package units are packaged heat pumps and packaged air conditioners with built-in gas furnaces. Package units are a very common application for Commercial buildings and flat roof homes.
Mini-Splits: Mini-splits are a high efficiency solution to heating and cooling. They are the ideal solution when attic space is limited and provide a very efficient method of conditioning individual areas as needed. Mini-splits come in a variety of different styles, from high wall mounted, ceiling mounted, floor mounted, to ducted type systems. They come in single-zone models for cooling just one area or in multi-zone models that can provide cooling to an entire home. Mini-splits are a common solution for garages, casitas, and those pesky hot and cold rooms that never seem to get enough airflow.
