Heat pumps are a great solution for Portland Oregon homeowners as they provide cooling when the weather turns hot and works with your furnace to heat your home more efficiently when it’s cold.
They're more efficient because they don’t actually generate heat-they simply transfer heat from one place to another and this takes a smaller amount of energy.
In fact, they can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume (powered by electricity). You're sure to notice the difference in your monthly utility as you save money whenever you save energy.
It works like an air conditioner except it has a switch to reverse the cycle so it can provide heating as well. In the winter, it pulls heat from either the outside air or the ground, multiplies it and moves it into your home to heat it. In the summer, it moves heat out of your home to cool it.
This means it can be paired with your gas furnace to provide back-up heat during cold weather. Heat pumps are most efficient down to about 30 degrees and furnaces are more efficient in extreme cold so the furnace takes over when it goes below 30. With this system, each piece of equipment is working at maximum efficiency so you save money and energy.

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.
It measures cooling output to electrical consumption over a range of temperatures (gas mileage on a car). The higher the SEER, the more energy efficient and less it costs to operate.
Heating Seasonal Performance Factor
HSPF measure the efficiency of a heat pump. The U.S. government’s minimum HSPF rating for a heat pump is 6.8%. The higher the percentage, the more efficiently it operates.
