Weather in Oregon and Washington is up and down. Some months it’s just non-stop rain and other times during those warm months, it’s hot and humid with no end in sight! Some homeowners are dedicated to using their furnaces during the winter and a reliable window air conditioning unit in the summer to keep their homes comfortable. But, did you know that there is a single system that can offer you the comfort you need all while saving significantly on heating costs? It’s true! A heat pump is a wonderful solution to both heating and cooling issues!

Air conditioner vs. heat pump?
Both systems use indoor and outdoor coils to transfer refrigerant. An air conditioning system absorbs heat that passes over the indoor coil in the system, which means that cool air is transferred into the ducts of your home and the heated air is released outdoors through an exhaust procedure. Heat pumps however, take outside heat for warming your home and then, they efficiently cool your home by taking the heat out of your house to cool it. If you are used to heating your home with inept heat sources such as oil or electric, you’ll see a huge change in your heating bill if you install a heat pump – you can save a lot of money! Over time, your investment in a heat pump should pay for itself because of the reduction in your energy bill! An air conditioning unit can be inexpensive and effective in cooling your home, especially if it’s a smaller area, but a heat pump can be used all year to both heat AND cool your home. In addition, it is a very environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home due to its resourceful use electricity.
