Heat Pumps are a Cool Idea

May 01, 2023

Heat pumps are the most efficient way to heat your house. In fact, they can produce $2-$3 of heat for every dollar of electricity they use. That makes them a win-win, saving money and energy.  

Did you know that heat pumps are also the best solution for cooling your home? Imagine a heat pump as a conveyor belt transporting heat from one place to another. In the winter, it carries the heat from outside and releases it in your house. In the summer it’s reversed and moves the heat from inside your house to the outside, leaving your home cool and comfortable.

As the summers in the Willamette Valley get warmer you may consider adding air conditioning to your house or upgrading an older existing system. Think twice before replacing a one-way AC or other inefficient system with an in-kind replacement. Upgrade to a modern heat pump to stay comfortable and save money all year!
