Are you looking to lower your carbon footprint and energy costs? Consider a heat pump for your Washington, home.
Unlike a gas furnace or boiler, electric heat pumps do not rely on combustion to generate warmth—they transfer heat to make your home comfortable.
Modern heat pumps use up to 50 percent less energy than an electric furnace or baseboard heating system, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Additionally, they provide heating and air conditioning, so you only have to maintain one unit instead of two.
If that’s not enough, they can also be used to power a water heater.
Because heat pumps are so efficient and versatile, a growing number of Sumner residents favor them over the traditional air conditioner and furnace combination. The comfort and long-term savings are a huge draw.
Whether you need assistance with heat pump installation, repair, or maintenance services, Dr. Cool is here to help. Get in touch with our Sumner office today—keeping your home and family comfortable is our top priority.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Air-source heat pumps (ASHP) are the most popular type of heat pump. When the weather turns cold, these units use an outdoor heat exchanger coil to capture heat from the air and transfer it indoors.
Next, the heat travels up the refrigerant line to the indoor heat exchanger coil. Finally, the heat gets fed into an air handler and sent through your air ducts. If you’re using an ASHP water heater, the indoor module sends the heat there as well.
During the summer, the process works in reverse. The indoor heat exchanger sends heat and humidity outside (much like an air conditioner) to cool your home.

Heat Pump Maintenance
A well-maintained heat pump will run efficiently for 10 to 15 years. Your heat pump gets heavy use—especially if you have it running year-round for heating and cooling. That’s why seasonal maintenance is a must for making your investment last.
Here are some of the many things your specialist will do during a check-up:
- Clean condenser coils and condensate drain
- Check for safe refrigerant levels
- Inspect and tune up electrical connections
In addition to professional maintenance visits, remember to change your air filter at least every 90 days to prevent mechanical problems. Changing your filter can also lower your energy costs by 15 percent.

“Nick did a great job installing our new system. It was a very long day for him. He was very knowledgeable and competent and explained everything to us.”

“The complete process was amazing! The install was done in a very professional manner, everyone wore Protective Mask because of COVID-19. I was really comfortable, they also were very conscientious of how close they would get to me and my wife they maintained at least 6’ distance and they always had their mask on. When entering the home they wore protective shoe covering. I guess the real question is would we use Dr Cool again? Absolutely We would Only use Dr Cool! Nick, David and Todd we very friendly answered all our questions about the install and how to use the new system. They cleaned everything up after the install even vacuumed the carpets they walked on. PROFESSIONAL, HONEST, CONSIDERATE, POLITE AND CONSCIENTIOUS Is how we would describe Dr Cool and the Dr. Cool installation team. I don’t see how someone would not be amazed at the quality of service they will receive. We are extremely happy ? Thank You Dr. Cool!”

“This was the first time I have purchased a heating system, and it was a breeze. Mark was exceptionally patient with my 5 million questions (and ongoing issues with my email). I had multiple estimates, and unfortunately the others assumed that since I was not familiar with the products, they could take advantage. Mark made sure that I got a great product that fit my needs and stayed in my budget.
When it came to delivery day, I was a little worried. We have multiple projects going on in our garage (others may call it a mess) and we did our best to make a path for them to work. They did not complain once, and were even respectful of our piles of junk. They were very efficient and despite running into a couple of hiccups, they had no problem adapting and getting everything done.
Quite honestly, when our last furnace bit the dust and I started exploring my options, I was freaked out and overwhelmed. So thank you Mark, Nick, David & Todd for taking care of everything for me so that I did not have a complete meltdown.”

“I decided that another summer with a window air conditioner wasn't gong to work for me! I used the Pierce County telephone directory to look up a Heating & A/C Contractor. I called 2 & 1 returned my call. He came to my home to give me a bid, but wasn't very helpful in explaining things. Since the other contractor never called back, I saw Dr Cool Heating & Air was close to my residence so I called. The gal who answered the phone was very nice & setup a appointment for Mark, the comfort advisor, to come over that afternoon. He was also very nice & most helpful & explained the heat pump vs A/C. I was able to understand & make a good choice for my needs. He was able to give me a better bid then the first contractor & so I choose to use Dr Cool, Inc. The install team did a great job! Everyone was very helpful, nice & professional! Outstanding job & highly recommended! Awesome! Thank you Dr Cool & Company!!!!”

“Dr. Cool installed our system about 5 years ago and they were great! Today we had our 1st issue. Wayne diagnosed the problem over the phone and it was simply fixed by cutting power and resetting the system. This shows me that Dr. Cool has a vested interest in taking care of their customers long term, and are not just looking for a buck. We will be customers for life. Thank you Dr. Cool!”

“Recently we discovered our heat pump was not working. We first contacted Dr. Cool on Tuesday evening and by Friday afternoon our new heat pump and electric furnace was installed and operable. Mark spent a number of hours guiding us through our options. Nick was here on Wednesday afternoon, all day Thursday, and all day Friday. Todd and David came first thing Friday morning with the 3 guys completing the new installation by Friday afternoon. The professionalism and expertise of all four guys… Mark, Nick, Todd, and David was outstanding! We are very happy we chose to replace the entire system; heat pump and electric furnace.”
