Heat Pump Installation

Vancouver WA | Battleground WA | Ridgefield WA | Camas WA

Heat pumps are a great energy-efficient alternative to an air conditioner and furnace. These units provide heating, cooling, dehumidifying, and more, providing you with year-round comfort.

If your current HVAC system is outdated or not functioning properly, and you’re in need of a replacement, contact Vanport Mechanical. We provide heat pump installation services in the Clark County area. Our HVAC technicians are NATE certified and EPA certified.

Types of Heat Pumps

Choosing the best type of heat pump for your home or business will depend on your heating/cooling needs, the natural climate, and availability to the resources you need to provide the cooler and warmer air.

Every home is different, that’s why Vanport Mechanical uses load calculations to determine the best design for an HVAC system to fit your needs.

The three basic types of heat pumps are:

  • Air source heat pump
  • Water source heat pump
  • Geothermal heat pump

Heat Pump Installation Process

Specific steps must be followed in order to install your heat pump correctly, including acquiring a permit. Not getting a permit for your air conditioning or furnace replacement is against the law. Any reputable HVAC company like Vanport Mechanical should provide permitting services. Our HVAC technicians know when and how to pull a permit and will ensure it’s the correct one for the type of job you’re having performed.

Our HVAC technicians have all of the resources and experience to perform the job right, the first time. Once the location for the heat pump has been identified, the installation will begin. Here are the following steps.

  1. Install the condenser
  2. Install the air handler mount
  3. Mount the air handler
  4. Connect the condenser and air handler
  5. Cover all lines and complete connections

Heat Pump Advantages

With a heat pump installed in your home, you’ll experience several benefits including:

  • Energy efficiency: heat pumps can help cut your energy costs by 50%
  • Year-round usability: heat pumps produce heat and cold air
  • Less maintenance: heat pumps need to be serviced about once a year compared to combustion systems
  • Long lifespan: heat pumps have an average lifespan of around 20 years, but can last even longer with care and regular maintenance
  • Safety: no carbon monoxide risks
  • Less noise: heat pumps are far quieter than other heating appliances because the compressor is located outside
  • Eco-friendly: heating isn’t produced through fossil fuels
  • Dehumidifies: no more dry air

Ductless Mini Split

Ductless heating and cooling systems provide a way to maintain specified areas of your home at a comfortable seasonal temperature. Since they do not depend on ducts and venting, it is one of the most flexible heating and cooling options on the market. Ductless heat pumps are perfect for non-ducted homes, guest cottages, in-law suites, or unattached apartments.
