Customer Testimonials

We love hearing from our customers! If you've had us work on your HVAC system we would love to hear from you too.

Gas Line Installation in Olympia, WA 98501

“Wow! Great experience with Pacific Air. I had them install a gas line and downdraft ducting for a range in my kitchen island. It was a long, complicated duct run with little space to work in. Another company seemed confounded by the project and gave me a bid that was more than twice as much which I knew was ridiculous. A Pacific Air estimator came out, was very thorough and friendly, and gave me a fair estimate. Phil just did the work yesterday and it turned out great. He was professional, friendly and competent. They'll be my first recommendation for HVAC work from now on!”

Air Duct Installation in Tacoma, WA 98405

“Kyle did an amazing job !! Because of Randy giving an amazing estimation of what needed to be done to cool my house. I have a good AC system to begin with, but didn't have a good duct system. These people know what they're doing! I am so happy with how things turned out and I had to pay extra because I live in Tacoma and they are from Olympia but it was well worth it. I will continue with them for future maintenance. Super quality work and excellent customer service. So pleased!

businesscompletely content and highly recommend these folks for anybody that needs AC or Heating attention with her home.”

Everything about this Experience was Wonderful

“Everything about this experience was wonderful, from the appointment setup to the estimate and installation. Price couldn’t be beat either.

The gentlemen installing the hat pump and air conditioner went above and beyond. They were knowledgeable, nice, conscientious of our pets, just all around good guys. (Phil and Kyle). I wish I could give them more stars.”

Why Is My Heat Pump Turning On and Off Frequently?

December 17, 2018

Why Is My Heat Pump Turning On and Off Frequently? However, internal errors can cause them to run extremely inefficiently. When your unit turns on and off continuously, this can drive up your energy bill significantly and damage its parts, leading to both repairs and part replacements. This phenomenon is known as short cycling. When a heat pump short cycles, it’s having trouble heating or cooling your home. The unit can’t maintain the set temperature, so it restarts over and over again.

Here are four reasons this might be happening, and what to do about it:

1. Air Filter Clog

Whenever your heat pump has a problem, always check your air filter first. Over time, dust and debris form on your filter. When unchanged, this restricts airflow, which means your system can’t circulate the right amount of air to heat or cool your home. You should replace or clean your air filter, depending on whether it’s disposable or reusable. To prevent future clogs, be sure to do this on a regular basis, depending on the heat pump manufacturer’s recommendations.

2. Thermostat Error

Your thermostat could be giving your heating system an inaccurate reading. This might be due to where your thermostat is placed. A thermostat placed near a vent or window is likely to produce a misleading temperature scan that can cause short cycling. Another possibility is faulty wiring between your thermostat and heat pump. In either case, you should have a professional assess the situation.

3. Leaky Refrigerant

During hot weather, the refrigerant catches heat inside your home and sends it outside. During cold weather, it takes heat from the outdoors, where it is then pressurized into your home. If you have a refrigerant leak, your system is going to have trouble with the heat transfer. Consequently, it will not be able to complete a cycle. If you see ice on your outdoor unit, this may indicate a refrigerant leak. In this case, seek help from a technician.

4. Oversized Unit

This is perhaps the most serious problem, as it may call for replacement. This is why Pacific Heating & Air Conditioning always performs the proper calculations before any HVAC installation. If you have received an oversized unit, it will heat or cool the area quickly, prematurely detect that it’s reached the target temperature, then shut off. Then the cycle will repeat. To be sure your system is the right size, you need to have a trained technician perform Manual J testing in your home.
