Heat pump systems are considered highly energy efficient and are a popular choice for homeowners in the Pacific Northwest.

When to Replace Your Heater
Replacing your heater is a big investment, which is why we want to help you make a smart decision for the future of your home.
Continuing to use an old and inefficient heating system can drive up your energy bill and create the need for costly repairs. On the other hand, you don’t want to replace your HVAC system if it still has several years of life left in it.
Before you make a decision, we highly recommend scheduling a professional heating inspection. In the meantime, here are a few telltale signs it’s time to replace your heater.
- Your heater is more than 15 years old. Old heaters consume more energy and aren’t equipped with the energy-efficient technology that newer units have, making them far more expensive to run.
- Your energy bills have climbed substantially for no apparent reason. This is a sign that the components in your heater are wearing out and that your system should be replaced.
- You have to repair your heater more than once a year. Frequent repairs are a sign that your heater has surpassed its expected lifespan. Further repairs will only become more and more expensive as parts for your heater become harder and harder to find.
- Your heater has lost the ability to keep your home warm. If your cycle times have increased and your heater seems to run constantly, but your home doesn’t feel all that much warmer, then it’s time to replace your system for good.
While most companies would be content to install your new system and collect the check, we believe in being there for our customers. We put in the time and effort to help you decide if replacement is the right choice based on your home and your budget.
Should I Invest in a High-Efficiency Heat Pump?
Heat pumps are quickly becoming the leading technology in in-home heating, especially in the Pacific Northwest. Why is that? The answer has to do with the cost of energy and how much heat your heater can produce with that energy.
Let’s look at some numbers—for your heater to generate one million BTUs of energy, you would pay: $34.04 for a propane-powered heater, $19.73 for an oil-burning furnace, $32.24 for an electric furnace, and just $16.12 for a high-efficiency heat pump!
To look at it another way—every dollar spent on the electricity to operate a furnace produces one dollar’s worth of heat. On the other hand, every dollar spent on electricity to operate a high-efficiency heat pump can produce up to 4 dollars worth of heat! In the Bend, Oregon area, this means your yearly cost of operating an electric furnace can be anywhere from 30% to 65% reduced with the addition of a heat pump.
There are other financial benefits as well. Central Electric Co-operative and the State of Oregon give out cash discounts and tax credits for homeowners who qualify for energy efficiency programs and rebates. With so many great perks, it’s not hard to see that you can dramatically cut the cost of heating with electricity by adding a heat pump. This is why we so strongly recommend electric heat pumps for homeowners everywhere.
