You rely on your heat pump for everything from keeping your home warm and comfortable to providing you with much-needed heat when temperatures drop to their lowest.
Signs That It's Time To Replace Your Heat Pump
Frequent Need for Repairs
One of the biggest signs to replace heat pumps is the need for frequent repairs. Not only is this costing you money in repairs, but it's also costing you in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. Replacing key parts in an old heat pump can also be difficult because manufacturers often discontinue the production of older models.
If you find yourself scheduling repair appointments more than once a year, it's probably time to replace your heat pump.
Sudden Spikes in the Energy Bills
If you've noticed that your energy bills have been gradually increasing over the past few months, it's probably due to your heat pump working overtime to compensate for its declining efficiency. A replacement heat pump will be much more efficient, meaning you'll see a decrease in your energy bills almost immediately.
Heat pumps are responsible for both heating and cooling your home, and when they're not working properly, they can cause the humidity levels to fluctuate. If you've been dealing with excessive humidity, it's time to schedule a heat pump replacement appointment.
Some Rooms Are Too Hot or Too Cold
Finally, if you've noticed that some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold, it's a sign that your heat pump is no longer able to evenly distribute heat. This is usually due to a problem with the ductwork, but it could also be a sign that your heat pump is on its last legs and needs to be replaced.
