Heat pumps have been popular overseas for decades, and energy-conscious Oregonians are finally starting to catch on to how great they are. An energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces, heat pumps move heat where you want it – outside in the summer and inside in the winter. Because they move heat rather than generate it, heat pumps require much less energy to keep temperatures comfortable. And, with a ductless heat pump, you can heat your house room by room, which saves energy and eliminates squabbling over the thermostat.
Heat pumps are a proven technology with several benefits. Here’s a few of the reasons you might consider one:
Better indoor air quality because air is filtered more often
Easily add efficient air conditioning
Energy savings of 40 to 60%**
Constant comfort: even temperatures and balanced humidity
Whisper quiet, inside and out
Financing is easy — simply make monthly installments through your PGE bill. Ask your contractor about eligibility and terms.
Either a ductless or ducted heat pump is a great choice for most people. Need help? Schedule a free consult.
Ductless heat pump
Best for homes without existing ducts, additions, or individual rooms that need a little extra help.
Ductless heat pumps are great for:
Heating and cooling homes without ductwork or with old, tired ducts.
Replacing inefficient electric baseboards or wall heaters, radiant heat, or noisy window-mounted air conditioners.
Helping to maintain a comfortable temperature in attics, sunrooms or work areas.
Providing room by room heating in new additions and in-law suites.
Ducted heat pump
If your home already has ducts, this is probably the best option for you.
Ducted heat pumps are great for:
Replacing an electric forced-air furnace with something more cost-efficient.
Making existing heating systems more energy efficient.
Providing affordable cooling in the summer and saving energy in the winter.
