Portland Heat Pump Installation

Energy-Efficient Heat Pump Repair Solutions

Our climate in Portland is the kind of climate that is perfect for a heat pump HVAC system. This is because we don’t typically get frigidly cold during the winter months, and heat pump systems are great at dehumidifying during the summer months. But gaining all the benefits a heat pump has to offer is highly dependent on its installation and servicing, and if these tasks are performed by anyone other than an expert, you may end up having a very frustrating, and costly, experience with your heat pump.

This will never be the case when you hire the HVAC pros from Western Heating & Cooling. Not only are our Portland heating and cooling professionals NATE-certified, they bring 30 years’ worth of collective experience with them to every job. This means you can rest assured that when we help you with installation, repair, bi-annual maintenance or replacement, the job will be done correctly the first time around.

Why Bi-Annual Maintenance is So Important

You are likely aware that annual maintenance is highly recommended for all heating and cooling systems, so you may be asking yourself: why does a heat pump need maintenance twice per year? The reason is simple: your heat pump system works twice as hard because it alone provides both your heating and cooling. With a heat pump system, you are using a 2-for-1 system in which a single device provides all your comfort needs.

As such, it needs to be maintained twice a year. It really isn’t any different than making separate maintenance appointments for separate heating and cooling systems. However, the important can’t be underscored enough. Maintenance helps your system maintain and even regain energy efficiency, helps you get ahead of potential repairs and extends the life of your heat pump system. When you need bi-annual maintenance for your heat pump, call the experts you can count on: Western Heating & Cooling.

Why Consider Heat Pump Installation

There are a number of reasons why customers in our area have chosen to use a heat pump HVAC system in their homes:

  • Very good energy efficiency: Heat pump systems do not need to use any kind of fossil fuel to provide your home with heat; they only use electricity. The amount of electricity they use is 25–50% of what a traditional split system AC uses, making them very energy efficient systems.
  • Versatile: Heat pump HVAC systems can be used with ductwork or ductless indoor blowers, giving you some options for air delivery.
  • Longer lifespan: Heat pumps last an average of 20–25 years versus traditional air conditioning and heating systems, which last 15–20.

Signs You Need Heat Pump Repair

1. Strange sounds - One of the reasons people invest in heat pumps in the first place is that they are less noisy than traditional HVAC units. So when your heat pump is making loud noises it should raise the alarm that you need heat pump repair.

2. The presence of ice - Like a regular air conditioner the refrigerant or coolant can run unchecked if you have a dirty air filter. If you see ice on or around your unit, make sure to get our attention right away.

3. It's turning on and off repeatedly - Usually when your heat pump is short-cycling it means that the compressor has gone bad. It could also be that your heat pump is too big, but either way, call in our Portland heat pump repair experts to at least inspect your unit before making the call.

4.Reduced heating or cooling - It could be due to electrical issues on the inside of the unit that are causing your heat pump to not heat or cool as it should.

5. An electrical bill through the roof - If you haven't changed your electrical consumption lately but your electrical bill is higher than normal, consider contacting our Portland heat pump installation specialists because you either need repair or replacement. It could be your heat pump that's taking up more electricity than normal.
