TThe name "heat pump" can be a little misleading. The primary function of a heat pump unit is to pull from the ground air temperature to both heat -and- cool your home to perfection. Heat pumps are gaining popularity in the Spokane, WA valley. They're a cost effective way to use less energy to warm up the temperature of your home in the winter. The same exact action will help to cool your home in the summer. The reason this works so well is because you're relying on the already existing ground temperature (which stays consistent all year long at 8'-10' underground) to supplement the difference in temperature of the outside air, whether that's warmer or colder. Heat pumps operate with the same type of thermostat that a forced-air heating system uses. However, if something starts to malfunction with your heat pump, it can be tough to predict what the cost to repair a heat pump will be. There are a number of factors that will affect the cost to repair a heat pump.
If you're finding that your home is still cold, even with the heat pump working, then you might need to consider a back-up form of heating. Heat pumps typically aren't strong enough for extremely cold temperatures, but are used to supplement and reduce the stress on a usual forced air systems that most houses contain. Heat pumps are considered to be an environmentally friendly solution, and will reduce energy costs by bearing as much of the heating as possible, but might need a back-up heating source, like a furnace. If you need to install something else, then the cost to repair a heat pump will be much more expensive than a simple fix.
It's never fun to deal with issues in the middle of the night or when you're not home. We were facing a problem with our water heater. Air Design was on the spot and at our house with a fix in less than 35 minutes - in the middle of the night! I was so impressed. The tech was so kind and professional. They even gave us a follow up call to make sure all was well a few days later. They are my go-to company from here forward!
We were spending far too much on our power bill in the summer and the winter. When the weather was extreme, it hurt our pocketbooks. Air Design suggested we supplement our heating and cooling system with a heat pump. We had never considered that. Our monthly power bill has decreased by 35%. What a great suggestion that we never would have thought of on our own.
Our family has always wanted a fire pit in the backyard. I called around and got prices from all the retailers. I was amazed that the prices for the fire pit and installation from Air Design were equal to us just doing it ourselves. Simple and affordable. Thank you Air Design. I love our family nights around the fire pit!
We had repair company after repair company come to our house to solve our problem with the furnace. Air Design found the issue that none of the other companies had even though to check. Their expertise and friendliness are 2nd to none. Give them a call before anyone else!
We've had our AC unit from Air Design installed 3 years ago and couldn't be happier. Every time we have had a question, the've been amazing with responses. The price was absolutely the best we found here in Spokane and the customer service has been incredible.
The professionals at Air Design, really helped me out! I couldn't use my heater and it was getting cold outside! They came, fixed my furnace, and price was better than expected! Thank you so much guys! Air Design comes highly recommended!!!
If there is a problem with the ductwork, then the cost to repair your heat pump may be more expensive. This will depend on the size and scope of the damage to the ductwork, and will be more costly than simply repairing the unit itself. Consider that there might be the teardown and fix up of the finish on your wall. That might include the sheet metal ductwork or the drywall and paint. This is the least common problem that we face when helping with heat pump service repairs.
There are a few different kinds of heat pumps for consideration. The cost to repair a heat pump that is just a window unit only meant to heat one room will be the least expensive. A whole-house system will be moderately priced to fix compared to other models. The cost to repair a heat pump that is a geothermal unit will be the most expensive to fix as it is located underground and will require excavation to repair.
The problem might be with the thermostat and not with the unit. If that is the case, then repair costs will be lower than having to fix the system itself. Air Design also services, repairs, installs, and replaces thermostats for just about any type of application.
Heat pumps are set up similarly to air conditioning units with a condenser system outside the home. If there are obstructions to that, then it might be a simple fix. The cost to repair a heat pump from the condenser side should typically be one of the more affordable repairs.
Many companies use heat pump applications for their business applications. You’ll find a higher percentage of businesses in the greater Spokane, WA area want to be as conservative as possible when it comes to energy costs. Commercial heat pumps tend to be a little larger and handle a lot bigger stresses of raising or lowering the temperature of the commercial building. Because of this, people are now liking the idea of using a heat pump for their residential homes. Air Design can handle any type of heat pump repair or service that is needed.
