Do You Need a Heating System for Your AZ Home?
Arizona is a fabulous place to live. From April to October, hot daytime temperatures give way to warm evenings. You’ll hardly find a home in Phoenix that doesn’t have a reliable air conditioner. But what about heating systems? Many homeowners wonder if they need a furnace or heat pump to keep their home warm.
The short answer is that while daytime temperatures from November through March are usually in the high 60s to mid-70s, evening temperatures in the winter tend to drop into the low 40s. You’re bound to experience unpleasantly chilly nights if you don’t have a reliable heating system.

Furnaces in Arizona Homes
You won’t likely need your furnace from April through most of October. However, you’ll need it in December, January, and February. Thankfully, even during these months, you’ll only need to run it for a short time because when the sun rises, it quickly warms the region back to the upper 60s or higher.
Popular HVAC Options That Provide Heating & Air Conditioning
There are many ways to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer without significantly expanding the footprint required for your HVAC systems.
While many homeowners install a stand-alone gas furnace, electric furnace, or oil furnace, there are several other options we highly recommend for homeowners in Phoenix.
Packaged HVAC Units
Packaged HVAC systems incorporate an evaporator coil, condenser, compressor, and a natural gas furnace or electric heating coils into a single cabinet. The cabinet is positioned on a cement slab outside the home or the structure’s ceiling.
It’s attached to the home via ductwork and is ideal for smaller houses, mobile homes, etc., because packaged HVAC systems take up little space.
Our climate makes heat pumps well-suited for Phoenix area homes. In the summer, the heat pump pulls heat from the home; in the winter, the refrigerant flow is reversed to draw heat into the house.
These systems are incredibly energy-efficient and reliable, with many systems offering 20+ years of dependable operation. Their sturdy, compact size means they take up little space and require minimal maintenance to keep them in working order.
Ductless HVAC Systems
Ductless HVAC systems are perfect for homes, apartments, offices, etc. These consist of an indoor air handler and an outdoor compressor. They’re connected via a conduit that includes the power cable, refrigerant tube, suction tube, and condensate drain. In the summer, the unit draws warm air in from the room, circulates it over the refrigerant coil, and sends the cooled air back into the room.
In the winter, many ductless HVAC systems are configured to reverse this flow at the flip of a switch, allowing them to warm the room. This makes ductless mini-splits a cost-effective, energy-efficient solution for enjoying year-round comfort.
