Heat Pumps

family pillow fight

AccuAir Heating and Cooling is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Bend, OR, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call AccuAir Heating and Cooling to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

“During the heat wave of 2021 my heat pump stopped working. Other companies (including the one that had always done my maintenance work) quoted me a 2 week delay in getting it fixed. AccuAir was able to get me fixed up within 48 hours. Why? The owner got out his tools and showed up at my house in the early morning. He was professional and efficient. And he was willing to go out into the field when the community was in crisis.

Needless to say, this company now does my regular maintenance and I recommend them to everyone I know.”

Heat Pump Repair in Bend, OR 97703

“Once again very impressed with AccuAir. I advised Dave over the weekend that I was having difficulty with my system but did not feel it was an emergency. Monday early AM he was back with me and checking my system remotely. It was determined a service call was necessary and they were ready to come that afternoon. I requested the next day and they accommodated. Tyler came out and did a thorough check of the system. He felt we had a leak resulting in zero pressure in the heat pump. He went over everything he was going to do and the potential cost before hand. He was very friendly, knowledgable, and efficient. The leak was in a difficult place. He explained how he was going to repair it and answered all questions. He did a great job. I have been a customer of AccuAir for about ten years. They are honest, fair, and do excellent work which they stand by. I highly recommend them.”
