Quality Heat Pump Repair and Replacement in the Portland Area.
Not only can an electric heat pump raise the temperature in your home in the Portland area, but it can also cool it too. When weighed against traditional heating systems—like a gas furnace—you’ll also likely have a reduced heating and cooling bill. Heat pumps function with an air handler, which distributes air throughout your home. While an air handler might resemble a furnace, it doesn’t create heat through fuel combustion. However, some air handler models may have secondary electric heating or cooling parts to assist the heat pump. When you need heat pump service or heat pump repair, call Comfort Solutions. We can work on any model of heat pump. Our technicians are NATE-certified, which means they are among the finest in the HVAC industry when it comes to heating and cooling.

An insufficiently maintained system can cost you
Poor Maintenance Can Cost You. On average, a neglected heat pump can consume 10 to 25 percent more energy, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. It’s also more likely to break down or fail prematurely.
Try our troubleshooting tips when your HVAC system isn’t delivering the best home heating or cooling in a reliable manner.
- Heat pump turns on and off frequently. Replace your air filter and then look at your thermostat, because it may need to be reset or need new batteries. If it’s cold and your system is on continuously, the thermostat may be set too high. Also, some heat pumps don’t work well around 25 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Insufficient heat. Clogged filters, fan and coils can lower airflow and harm your system. Swap your filter once a month, clean the unit’s coils and fan, and get rid of yard debris that may have built up around it. Your system may also have blocked air ducts, faulty valves or poor refrigeration flow.
- No heat / No cool. Check your thermostat is switched to “on” and “heat or cool.” Next, make sure a circuit breaker hasn’t tripped. Recently installed a new thermostat? Make sure it’s a model compatible with heat pumps and wired correctly.
- Rattling, grinding or squealing noises. If you hear rattling, try tightening the cover panels. If you hear grinding or squealing, stop using your system and contact Comfort Solutions. This could signal a serious problem.
