HEAT PUMP REPLACEMENT
Redmond, Oregon

At Alpine Heat & Air serving all of Central Oregon homes often have heat pumps that are used for either the heating or cooling of your home by transferring heat between two reservoirs. In the warmer months, the heat pump acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from the air inside your home and transferring it outside. During colder months, heat from outdoor air is extracted and transferred to the interior of your home. Heat pumps are cheaper alternatives to furnaces and they can be 400% more efficient than the most efficient furnace in the market. So, if you want a green product or just simply want to keep the green in your pocket, think about a heat pump. A Central Oregon residential heat pump expert can come out and help you with heat pump replacement, repair, or installation. Do not hesitate to contact Alpine Heat & Air if you want the most cost-effective and reliable Heat Pump services.

Heat Pump Models

Ducted Air-Source Heat Pumps. The most common type of heat pump is the air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. Despite the name, a heat pump can both heat and cool your home, taking the place of your furnace, air conditioner, or both. And because heat pumps don’t directly burn fossil fuels, installing one reduces both your carbon emissions and your monthly gas bill.

Heat Pump Repair

Maybe you’ve noticed that your heat pump is blowing out cold air, or you have a hunch that something isn’t working correctly. The good news is that some signs clearly indicate the need for heat pump repairs. You can trust the Alpine Heat & Air team to check out any of these signs and perform the best heat pump repairs.

What is a heat pump?
Most heat pumps look like a large air conditioning unit that is fixed to the outside of your home. The pumps have both an outdoor and an indoor component, and keep your home comfortable by moving warm air into your home in the winter — and out of your home in the summer.

What’s the difference between a furnace and a heat pump? 

A heat pump doesn’t burn fuel to create heat like a furnace does, rather it moves heat from the outdoors into your home in the winter.

Do heat pumps work when it's cold outside?
Most heat pumps extract heat either out of the air or out of the ground to heat a building. And, yes, heat pumps work even when it’s cold outside. One type circulates a refrigerant that’s colder than the outside air, allowing the pump to extract even the smallest amount of heat from the outdoors and transfer it into your home. 

How do heat pumps save money?
Heat pumps don’t burn fossil fuels to create heat, so they reduce your monthly gas bill. 

Are heat pumps good for the environment?
Heat pumps are better for the environment because they do not directly burn fossil fuels to create heat. Gas or fuel oil used for heating, hot water and cooking makes up more than 10% of carbon emissions in the U.S. — with heating being the largest direct use of fossil fuels in buildings.

In contrast, an air-source heat pump can provide up to three times more heat than the electricity it consumes. That efficiency, combined with ongoing grid-wide improvements to greener energy sources, means that over the life of your heat pump, your carbon footprint will be much lower than that of a traditional furnace. 

 

Five Signs Your Heat Pump Needs to Be Replaced
If you are experiencing problems with your system and your heat pump is more than 15 years old, it could be time to consider a replacement. Our certified heating and cooling technicians will talk with you about the problems you are experiencing, and they’ll do a thorough inspection of your system to diagnose the problem. At that point, if we believe you need a new heat pump, our technician will make recommendations for the most energy-efficient, high-quality option that will work best for your home. 

Here are five common signs your heat pump needs to be replaced: 

  1. The heat pump seems to run constantly.

  2. The temperature in your home never feels comfortable.

  3. Your indoor air quality is suffering and has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs.

  4. Utility bills have increased. 

  5. The heat pump is making strange noises. 
     

Things to Consider When Buying a New Heat Pump
When it comes to heating and cooling systems, we understand that every home is different and every family has different needs. If you’re in the market for a new heat pump, here are factors your Plumbline technician will consider when making the best heat pump recommendation for your home: 

  • Heat pump size

  • To find the right size of heat pump for your home, your HVAC Design Consultant will perform a detailed calculation that includes analyzing your home’s energy efficiency, ductwork sizing, and square footage.

  • Heat pump efficiency level

  • Heat pumps have two efficiency ratings: cooling efficiency (SEER) and heating efficiency (HSPF). Higher efficiency ratings mean the heat pump costs less to run, but it also means the upfront cost is higher. Your HVAC Design Consultant will help you determine the most energy-efficient option for your home.

  • Length of manufacturer warranty

  • A longer warranty often costs more, but it also gives you peace of mind — if there’s a problem with the product, you won’t have to pay out of pocket for the parts to fix it. Our Plumbline experts will help you find the best equipment warranties available for your new heat pump purchase. 

  • Pulling permits

  • When we install new heat pumps, we are required to pull permits, which requires an additional fee that varies depending on your municipality. Our Plumbline team will handle the permit process for you and will keep you informed if any issues arise. 

  • Accessibility

  • If your system is located in a crawl space, attic, or tight closet, you could incur additional labor costs because the heat pump will require a more complex installation. We promise to be upfront with you about labor pricing from the start.

  • Financing options*

  • Tight budget? Fear not. Our in-home estimates are free, and we will be happy to talk with you about our flexible financing options.
