When you need to both heat and cool your home, a heat pump can be an effective solution. These systems can perform both functions by extracting heat from the groundwater to warm your home and pumping heat out of your house to keep it cool. To learn more about these energy-efficient systems or to have one installed or repaired, call ThermAll Heating & Cooling, Inc. for services in Yakima and Ellensburg, WA.

Benefits of Installing a Heat Pump
Installing a heat pump can have many benefits for your property. Some of the advantages can include:
- Energy-efficiency: These systems use renewable energy sources to make them more energy-efficient than forced-air units. This can result in lower utility bills.
- Government incentives: You could potentially qualify for incentives from the government for installing a renewable heat unit. You could also be eligible for a tax rebate.
- Improved indoor air quality: Because this system doesn’t create smoke or add fumes to the air, it can result in better air quality in your home than if you used a forced-air unit.
- Increased safety: These units can be safer than heaters or furnaces.
- More climate control: These systems allow you to have maximum control over the interior climate in your house.
At ThermAll Heating & Cooling, Inc., we install several types of heat pumps, including those from Goodman.
What Makes Heat Pumps Energy-Efficient Systems?
When looking for an energy-efficient heating system, heat pumps can be one of the top choices. These units save energy by:
- Moving heat instead of generating it, which requires less energy.
- Using only a small amount of electricity to transfer hot and cold air as needed.
- Easily increasing or decreasing the temperature of a room. These units can heat or cool a room in just a few minutes.

Common Problems With Heat Pumps
Like all heating systems, occasionally your heat pump will require professional repairs. Some common problems you might encounter with your unit can include:
- Heat pump cycles incorrectly: If the unit turns on and off too frequently, it can mean the system is overheating due to a malfunctioning blower or clogged filter.
- Malfunctioning condenser: If the condenser freezes up, the system should be turned off. A contractor can inspect it to make sure the filter isn’t clogged and the return-air registers aren’t blocked.
- Blower stops working: The blower can stop working if the air inside the plenum becomes too hot.
- Improper installation: If the system was installed incorrectly you will need a professional to correct the errors.
