Heat Pump Services in Portland, OR

Our climate in Portland is the kind of climate that is perfect for a heat pump HVAC system.

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 Install and Use a Heat Pump HVAC System?

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.
