Heat Pumps

Family holds friendly pillow fight on the couch.

All Weather Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Snoqualmie, 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.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call All Weather Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

“We just had All Weather Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration replace our aging gas furnace with a new furnace + heat pump. It’s been a real pleasure working with Scott and his crew from the initial proposal to the final installation. The whole team was very responsive, knowledgeable, professional, respectful, and accommodating. They patiently explained everything and answered all my questions — and believe me, I had a bunch of them initially 😉 — to make sure I have the full understanding of all the available options, capabilities, equipment, rebates, etc. The installation crew finished on time as promised and did an awesome clean job.

Heat Pump Repair in Sammamish, WA 98074

“I have an outdoor heat pump which was seriously damaged by another company while making a service call/annual checkup. That company didn’t return my calls when my heat pump turned into a very noisy, energy consuming ice maker; i.e., the opposite of what it’s supposed to do. A friend recommended All Weather. They came quickly and repaired the damage. The technician, and the person I talked to on the phone, were professional, knowledgeable and competent. The malfunctioning heat pump was quickly fixed. Their pricing is reasonable. I will be using them for all my future heating and air conditioning needs.”

“We recently had a new electric furnace and heat pump installed by All Weather. This was a logistically challenging process due to pandemic-related safety measures and to supply chain problems. Regardless, our experience from the first phone inquiry to final installation was very positive. All staff we encountered online, on the phone, or in person were pleasant, effective, and professional. The technicians were well-trained, and the owner Scott Leibowitz ensured that all proceeded smoothly and any concerns that arose were quickly addressed to our full satisfaction. We look forward to continuing our association with All Weather through its annual maintenance program; and we will be pleased to highly recommend All Weather to others.”
