How Often Is Heat Pump Replacement Necessary?

Heat Pump ReplacementHeat pumps provide excellent performance and impressive savings, but if your heat pump is due for replacement, you’ll quickly lose out on those advantages. At Environment Masters, we recommend that Jackson homeowners be proactive about heat pump replacement, instead of waiting for the unit to fail at an inconvenient time. Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding whether it’s time to replace your heat pump.

Signs Replacement Is the Right Choice

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the typical heat pump lasts for 10 to 15 years. However, your unit may require replacing earlier, especially if you notice the following issues:

  • Your energy bills are increasing.
  • The heat pump requires frequent maintenance or repairs.
  • The rooms in your home are no longer evenly heated.
  • Heating or cooling your home takes longer than it used to.
  • The heat pump operates more noisily than it used to.

If you notice these problems and your heat pump is more than ten years old, replacement may make more sense than repairs as your unit is already approaching the end of its lifespan. Of course, if you’re uncertain about whether heat pump replacement is the right choice, consulting with us can help you evaluate the condition of your current unit and the savings that could come with replacing it.

Handling the Replacement Smoothly

If a replacement is in order, the experts at Environment Masters can help you choose the best new unit and install it. Heat pump replacement can be a difficult and time-consuming task, but we make the installation as efficient and affordable as possible. We also can take care of any ongoing repairs or replacements the unit may need. To learn more or to get a professional opinion on whether it’s time to upgrade to a new heat pump, please call us today at 601-353-4681.
