Heat pumps are a great heating-and-cooling option for Olympia, WA residents. Heat pumps can offer a tremendous energy savings as opposed to more traditional heating and cooling––up to 15 to 20 percent.
Since this area doesn’t reach tropical temperatures, heat pumps need an auxiliary heating source, whether it’s your existing gas furnace or a new electric one. Once temperatures dip below 35°F to 40°F, the auxiliary heat jumps in to help the heat pump heat your home. But even with this supplemental heating, heat pumps are still more efficient and environmentally friendly than traditional HVAC systems, resulting in lower heating-and-cooling costs.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. They work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it like conventional heat. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Of course for cooling, in practice they run similarly to traditional air conditioners. Typically, there are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. They collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. It’s wise to talk to someone directly from Pacific Air for an assessment on what would best suit you and your home.
Living in this climate offers a heat pump as a viable energy-efficient alternative to traditional HVAC systems. Now may be the perfect opportunity to upgrade your existing nonefficient heating-and-cooling system to a more efficient heat pump. Many of our heat pumps carry an ENERGY STAR® rating, offering substantial savings in your energy costs. Call our experts at 360-357-4328 to help you evaluate if a heat pump would be an appropriate investment for your needs or if you’d like your current heat pump serviced or repaired.
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.”

Show up on Time, Clean Cut, Very Knowledgeable
“Bodie came out to give me an estimate on replacing my heat pump and gas furnace. Showed up on time, clean cut, and was very knowledgeable. He did a complete calculation on our home at no charge! Needless to say we ended up buying a Mitsubishi system from them. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a great price and honest place to do business.”
