Signs You Need Heat Pump Replacement
It is sometimes difficult to determine whether you need heat pump replacement or heat pump repair. Keep these items in mind when making this decision:
- Your heat pump is 10-15 years old – although this doesn’t mean you absolutely need to replace your heat pump, it may be a good idea—especially if you find yourself needing heat pump repair often. Your heat pump will need to be replaced eventually, so throwing thousands of dollars at it for repairs to simply extend its life by a few more years may not be a wise investment.
- Your heat pump is not heating and cooling your home evenly – if you have noticed that your home now has hot or cold spots, this could be a sign that your heat pump needs to be replaced (although leaky ductwork and poor insulation could also cause this). If your heat pump is the cause of this problem, heat pump replacement is the best option for your home.
- Your energy bills are increasing – even if you have regularly maintenance performed on your heat pump and you still notice a decrease in efficiency, you should have your heat pump replaced. Once the efficiency of your heat pump begins to decline, it is very difficult to restore it to its original levels. A new heat pump will offer superior energy efficiency that will help offset the cost of replacement over time.
- Your home has problems with humidity – if you have noticed an increase in humidity in your home, this could be attributed to your heat pump. When a heat pump doesn’t work properly, it may not remove the moisture from your home at a sufficient level. If this has happened in your home, contact us for a heat pump diagnostic check. Our heat pump technicians can then recommend whether you should have heat pump repair or heat pump replacement.
