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.”

What is a heat pump and how does it work?

October 18, 2018

A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from inside to outside or from outside to inside. 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.

What is the difference between an air source heat pump, water source heat pump and a geothermal heat pump?

There are many different names and types of heat pumps but they can all be categorized as one of three different types: air source, water source or geothermal.

Air Source Heat Pump

An air source heat pump transfers energy in the air from one place to another. It uses an outdoor heat exchanger coil to extract heat from the air and an indoor heat exchanger coil to transfer the heat into air ducts, radiators or a hot water tank. This process can also be reversed so that it may be used as an air conditioner as well.

Water Source Heat Pump

A water source heat pump operates similarly to the air source heat pump but uses water instead of air to transfer heat. These types of pumps are not available to everyone because of the resources needed, but if you live near a well, lake or other natural resource this can be a viable option. A water source heat pump cycles water through a series of pipes that are laid out in water. As the water cycles, it collects the heat and transfers that energy into your home. Again this process reverses in the summer and carries heat out of your house, also by way of the water in the pipes.

Geothermal Heat Pump

A geothermal heat pump is also called a ground source heat pump. In this system, the pump uses the earth as its heat source. Conceptually, a geothermal heat pump is the same as an air source or water source heat pump.

There are two different methods of installation:

Horizontal Ground Coupled System

  • A horizontal ground coupled system buries horizontal piping 4 feet or more under the ground and circulates a fluid like antifreeze or water through it.
  • Vertical Ground Coupled System

  • A vertical ground coupled system has the same process as its horizontal counter part but the pipes are buried vertically.
  • The geography and climate around your house are important when deciding which kind of heat pump is right for you. If you have more questions about what kind of heat pump is best for your home, or want to request a quote or service please call us today OR request service online.
