Heat pumps are always a popular choice for heating and cooling homes in Oregon. These energy-efficient systems can do the work of both your furnace and air conditioner, making them a good investment when it comes to helping the environment and managing your household budget.
A heat pump saves energy and money by transferring heat rather than producing it. During the summer months, a heat pump works like an air conditioner and moves the warm air from your home to the outdoors. In the winter, it can capture warm air from the outdoors and transfer it to your home. Transferring heat rather than trying to create it is an enormous cost saver.
When they first came out on the market, heat pumps were only suitable in regions with mild winters. Thanks to technology, high-efficiency heat pumps sold today can provide sufficient warmth in the majority of climates around the United States—including here in Central Oregon, where we tend to experience some pretty extreme temperatures during the winter months.
At Diversified Heating & Cooling, we offer a quality selection of heat pumps designed to keep your Bend, OR, home comfortable throughout the year. Our NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certified professionals can recommend and install the best heat pump for your budget and lifestyle.
Why Purchase a Heat Pump?
If you are considering whether to replace your old furnace and air conditioning unit, consider installing a heat pump. It is easy to operate and provides the following benefits:
- A heat pump replaces your air conditioner and furnace, leaving you with less heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to maintain.
- Heat pumps can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50 percent compared to a gas furnace, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE).
- A heat pump reduces your carbon emissions, even more so if paired with solar paneling.
Installing a Heat Pump
You can count on our expert installation team to carefully calculate the heating and cooling requirements for your home before choosing a model that best fits your needs. Heat pumps can be installed either as central units that rely on air ducts or as ductless systems (also called mini splits) that allow you to install individual units throughout your home.
Ductless heat pumps are the perfect solution to heat and cool any new addition to your home that has no ductwork. They also match up well in larger homes with zone control systems.
Repairing a Heat Pump
Heat pumps are similar to air conditioners, and many of the same issues that affect an air conditioner can affect a heat pump—such as refrigerant leaks or a stuck compressor.
You can trust our licensed and insured professionals at Diversified to quickly diagnose and address any issues involving your heat pump. We provide reliable, upfront repair quotes to avoid any hidden surprises, and we offer 24/7 emergency repair services so we can be there when you need us most.
Heat Pump Maintenance
Proper preventative maintenance is always a key factor to extend the service life of all your HVAC equipment—and a heat pump is no exception. We recommend biannual inspections and tune-ups for your heat pump since it does the job of both a furnace and air conditioner and, therefore, has to work twice as hard.
We offer preventative maintenance plans at Diversified Heating & Cooling that are tailor-made to meet your budget and lifestyle. These plans take into account scheduled visits and emergency repair calls. Having a maintenance plan in place provides peace of mind knowing your HVAC system is being cared for by a trusted professional.

Diversified is the best
I had two bids two consider before, Jess showed up. The first thing she did was came ready to sell, which actually worried me, as I'm not fond of hard sells. But she never pushed, instead, She also came ready to work. She donned coveralls and went under our Manufactured home to check our HVAC cross-over, then showed me the photos. She did the "survey" asked a lot of questions, and then did then math in the field and came up with a system that was better by far than the entry level systems of the other bids, and almost as efficient as the expensive options showed by others. Then she also offered everything needed to get the maximum rebates from the utility company, including links emailed me to complete their forms, and a little over the phone hand holding. The fact is, it felt like the other guys just guess-ti-mated what we needed, and barely spent any time on it, what for us is an expensive decision.
