Investing in a heat pump for your Bend, OR, home can dramatically improve your energy efficiency. Using electricity, heat pumps can both heat and cool your home. While they’ve been around for quite some time, they’re now in homes more frequently because of their ability to decrease your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Efficient Heating and Cooling

When in heating mode, a heat pump will collect heat from the outside, moving it indoors to make your home more comfortable. When working in reverse to cool your home, heat will move from the inside of your home to the outside. Refrigerant is part of this cycle, compressing, expanding, and changing from a liquid to a gas. This transfer of thermal energy is much more efficient than a traditional heating and cooling setup. Heat pump refrigerants have a very low boiling point, which increases the system’s efficiency.

Rebates and Incentives

Many heat pumps come with a rebate after installation to help sway homeowners to switch to this energy-efficient heating and cooling option. There are also various tax incentives that are available in the Bend area. A professional HVAC technician can provide you with more information on how you can reduce the initial upfront cost of a heat pump.

Alleviating the Burden on Your HVAC System

A heat pump is often part of a traditional furnace and air conditioner setup. If the weather outside isn’t conducive to running your heat pump, your other equipment takes over. This can lengthen the lifespan of your HVAC system.
