    Heat pumps in Phoenix

    Does anyone have experience using a heat pump in Phoenix? If so, how much does it extend your season and what are your typical operating costs? I'm hoping to extend our season from March/April to October if possible, but not sure if that is possible with a heat pump.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I saw the title to this one and though, their kidding, right? I've been to Phoenix once.... I thought I'd made a wrong turn and was in Death Valley.

    Glad you got a chuckle out of it. However, this is a serious question. Our unheated swim season is roughly mid-May to September. I'm looking for experience of locals who have used a heat pump to extend that season.

    Still interested in relevant replies.

    Thanks.
