Comfort Zone Heating & Cooling is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Weiser, ID, 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 Comfort Zone Heating & Cooling 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.

“On 1/16/24 our HVAC system quit when the temperature was -4*.We called Comfort Zone requesting to be scheduled as soon as possible. Maggie placed us on the schedule and advised we could get service earlier if there was a cancellation or a technician was running ahead of schedule. Fortunately Patrick stopped by the same afternoon and started troubleshooting and Bud arrived a bit later. Before they left we had propane heat and knew the heat pump needed a new circuit board. Bud installed a new heat pump circuit board on 1/19/22. He advised we should consider an ambient temperature sensor and wire our thermostat accordingly so the system would automatically switch to propane heat when necessary. Dean installed the sensor on1/29/24. We have had Comfort Zone (who did not install this system) address other issues with this two year old unit and it now works in the manner it was designed to work. This team is friendly, tidy, timely and professional. We highly recommend them.” – Ed W.

“We have had our new heating / air conditioning system for 3 years , love how quiet & energy efficient it is, the draw back is Trane should have more of the bugs fixed before goes into residential and a better warranty so consumers don’t have to pay out of pocket for lil extras ( time delays, surge protectors etc..)
