Additionally, because of the way the rooftop A/C is installed, the unit doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the home cool and comfortable in the warmer months
Some people believe that because Phoenix is in the middle of the desert that we don’t experience colder weather. That thought couldn’t be farther from the truth. While the weather is typically mild during the Winter months, temperatures do get cold in the area. In fact, December is our coldest month with temperatures dropping into the low 40s and the days might be a high of mid-60s. If you’re from the Northern part of the country, of course, this weather doesn’t sound cold at all to you, but for us here in Phoenix it is a bit chilly. So, many of us, including me, use heat pumps a lot during the Winter to keep our homes comfortable. Heat pumps are great for places like Phoenix that experience milder cold weather. Some heat pumps are not as efficient when the temperature is too cold outside. And if you’ve been to Arizona or if you live here, you’ll notice that there are a lot of rooftop air conditioners. Based on what my HVAC provider told me, rooftop A/Cs are more efficient in keeping the home comfortable. Additionally, because of the way the rooftop A/C is installed, the unit doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the home cool and comfortable in the warmer months. Whether it’s cold outside or it’s steaming hot, chances are, if you live in Phoenix or the state of Arizona, you’ll depend on an HVAC unit to keep the house nice and comfortable. And regardless if the system is on the roof or not, as long as it works properly that is all that matters to me.
