How Often Is Heat Pump Replacement Necessary?
Heat 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.
