Why Get a Heat Pump in Chandler?
Instead of generating energy, heat pumps transfer it. They absorb the heat inside your home in the summer and transfer it outdoors exactly like an air conditioning unit.
When the weather gets cold your Chandler heat pump now extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it into your home.
High-efficiency heat pumps are well-suited to the Arizona climate. They work with or without air ducts, giving Chandler customers plenty of options for home remodeling or retrofits.
Here are a few other advantages heat pumps offer:
- You can choose between air-source or water-source heat pumps.
- Lower your home’s carbon footprint.
- Easy to install and maintain.
- Multiple air handlers allow you to create a zone control system.
- Balances humidity to support your indoor air quality (IAQ).
- Operates quietly

What Does SEER Mean?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is used to indicate how efficiently a heat pump or air conditioner produces cool air. It is a ratio that measures a unit’s output over the cooling season compared to the amount of electricity it uses. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the cooling system. That translates into higher cost savings for you.
What’s the difference between SEER and SEER2?
Manufacturers have redesigned heat pumps and air conditioners to meet the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) new efficiency standards, referred to as SEER2. The updated testing procedure more accurately reflects real-world conditions for HVAC systems by changing the static pressure used in the testing lab by up to five times.
All new heat pumps and air conditioners sold and installed after January 1, 2023, must meet these new requirements.
What’s the SEER2 minimum rating in Arizona?
As of January 1, 2023, residential central air conditioner purchases and installations in Arizona and other Southwest states must have a residential air conditioning unit SEER2 rating of 14.3, which equates to a SEER rating of 15.
What SEER2 rating qualifies for tax credits in 2023?
- Split air conditioner systems must have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating 2 (SEER2) of 16 or more. All packaged systems with ENERGY STAR® certification are eligible.
- Air Conditioners—Tax credit capped at $600
- Heat Pumps—Tax credit capped at $2,000
What is a good SEER2 rating for a heat pump?
Heat pumps in Arizona spend most of their time in air conditioning mode. That means you want to invest in a high-efficiency model that can tackle the 100-degree plus temperatures that we regularly have in the Valley.
New residential heat pumps must have a SEER2 of 14.3 or higher in all regions of the country. Mason Pro Services recommends installing an air-source heat pump with a SEER2 rating of 16 or higher. These high-efficiency models use less energy, making them more eco-friendly than standard HVAC equipment. Plus, you’re electric bill will thank you.

What Is a Dual-Fuel System?
A dual-fuel system is considered a hybrid system—it involves pairing a heat pump with a gas furnace. You can keep your furnace, install a heat pump, and decide which to use depending on the weather in the winter.
You still save on energy costs because those super cold nights here in Arizona are few and far between! Your heat pump will do just fine in the winter for the most part. But on those rare chilly days, you’ll still have a furnace to fire up and keep you cozy.

“Jim has handled my a/c maintenance for a couple of years now, and he’s always professional, polite, and in a good mood…even when he is working outside in the summer. When my unit couldn’t keep up with the thermostat due to a leaky condenser coil, he made sure that I stayed cool while a new coil was ordered, did the replacement w/in 10 days, and helped another technician learn the process…all with a smile on his face. Thank you Jim, and Mason Pro, for being a terrific partner for my a/c needs.”

“Jim E arrived early in the schedule window, nice. After a walk through addressing access Jim went right to work. Going over the compressor outside. Then took a look at the thermostat that I wanted to replace with a programable. After talking through his recommendations of what it would take to maintenance a 20 year old unit I decided that I wanted to think about installing new unit in the near future. Gotta look at finances 😁”
