4 Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Heat Pump

Even if you’re pretty sure your heat pump is ready for replacement, it can be useful to check for common signs to make sure. It may be time to change out your heating and cooling system if any of the following apply to your heat pump.

  • Your heat pump is more than 10 years old. While we all wish our heat pumps could last for all eternity, they have a pretty definite life span. The longest timeline people usually get out of their system is 15 years. That’s an excellent goal, but not always attainable. If your system breaks down after its 10th birthday, it’s likely a better financial decision to invest in a newer system.
  • Your home comfort is going down. As your system ages, it has to work harder to keep up the same level of home comfort you’ve always had. Over time, your system might lose some of that power. And if you’ve tried to fix the issue with other repairs with no luck, it’s likely time to choose a replacement.
  • Your heat pump seems to run all the time. Unless the Heflin weather is extremely cold, your heat pump shouldn’t feel like it’s running all the time. Cycles are a vital part of the way heat pumps operate. If they’re starting to become less frequent, you have an issue with your system.
  • Your utility bills are increasing. When you originally got your heat pump, you probably looked for an energy-efficient one. Over time, your heat pump might not be able to keep up. If you’re noticing your energy bills climbing with no obvious cause, it might be time to look for a new one.

Benefits of Heat Pump Replacement

While you might not be looking forward to finding a replacement, a new heat pump does have some advantages for your home.

  • Increased energy efficiency. If it’s been more than 10 years since you’ve replaced your heat pump, you’re missing out on more energy-efficient models. With SEER ratings now available up to 20 or higher, you have more options for an energy-efficient home than ever before.
  • Better home comfort. With a new heat pump, you’ll have the greatest possible home comfort available. Any power your last system lost over time will reappear—and maybe then some.
  • More control over your system. Maybe you got your system from your home’s previous owners. Maybe you’re just hoping for an upgrade. Either way, replacing your system is the perfect time to take control of your system. You can select a smart thermostat or accessories like an air purifier. It’s your choice when you make the change!
