Heat Pumps

Close up of a heat pump.

Apex Air is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Vancouver, WA, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

When energy-efficiency is at the height of your concerns, residential heat pump systems make sense. They take the place of furnaces and air conditioners by providing both heat and cool air whenever needed.

Our HVAC experts are both Bryant and NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certified, giving them high levels of experience and knowledge to install, repair, and maintain your home’s heat pump. If you are considering a heat pump new installation or replacement, or you’re looking for repairs or maintenance, you won’t find more qualified and reliable professionals than you will at Apex Air here in the Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR, metro area. No matter what type of home heat pump you are contemplating or have, our experts live up to our reputation.

Types of Heat Pump Systems

Heat pumps work differently than more traditional heating and cooling systems. For climates with moderate heating and air conditioning needs, such as ours here in the Pacific Northwest, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house, and during the colder season, they move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at one quarter of the cost of operating conventional HVAC appliances.

Regulating the temperature inside your home is easy with these types of systems, but you should know which type you want before buying it. There are three different types of residential heat pump systems available—air-to-air residential heat pump, geothermal or water source heat pump, and gas-fired pump. Each has various benefits to the others. Speak to one of our heat pump specialists to discuss which pump would be the best option for you.

Energy-Efficient Heat Pump Benefits and Savings

The energy efficiency of a heat pump is just one of multiple benefits and ways to save money year round. If you haven’t had a chance to install a heat pump in your home, now may be the time. Our heat pump installation experts will take care of the service for you and give you the advice needed to reduce your energy consumption and lower your home’s energy bills.

Our specialists can also explain how you can claim a renewable energy credit each tax year, in addition to other incentives on a new install. The energy-efficient heat pump benefits can earn you up to a 30-percent discount on your tax bill. Our certified technicians are ready to discuss the energy-efficient heat pump benefits and answer any questions you might have.

Heat Pump Installation

Depending on the type of heat pump we are installing in your home, and whether it’s a new install or a replacement, installation can be unique for each. It can be a rather straightforward installation, or, in the case of a geothermal or water-source heat pump, it can be more involved since ground excavation may be involved. Be sure to discuss the different processes with our HVAC experts.

Heat Pump Service

Home heat pump repair and maintenance are things you will be concerned with at some point. 

Having your heat pump repaired as soon as you think you have a problem, and keeping up with general maintenance, can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Prevent your family from the most extreme weather elements, and have your heat pump repair and maintenance needs handled by one of our certified technicians.

Like all heating and cooling systems, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglected one ranges from 10 to 25 percent.

It’s important to keep your heat pump regularly maintained, so you don’t need to be concerned with it breaking down when you rely on it the most. Having one of our skilled professionals come out and perform maintenance on your heat pump on a regular basis is ideal, as it helps maintain your HVAC unit longer. With the proper maintenance, your home’s heat pump could last up to 15 years.
