It’s not a good idea to head into a heating season with a system that can’t carry you through it. If you are using a heat pump to stay warm this fall, and it cannot actually keep your home warm through another season, you should replace it right now. That way, you won’t have to worry about the heat pump breaking down on you in the middle of winter. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need a new heat pump system.
As a heat pump system gets older, it will gradually wear down more and more. That accumulated wear and tear will eventually start to cause the efficiency of the system to decrease. The system will operate for longer and longer periods of time in order to compensate for the lost efficiency, which will lead to higher bills. If your heating bills are rising sharply for no apparent reason, it may be that you need a new system.
Too Many Repairs
Repairs are pretty much inevitable for heating systems of all kinds. However, the closer a heat pump gets to the end of its life, the more problems it’s going to run into. If you need to repair your heat pump every few months, it’s a definite sign that you need to replace it as soon as possible.
Heat pumps tend to last anywhere between 10 and 15 years. Once they get older than that, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep them up and running without spending altogether too much money on repairs. If your heat pump is older than 15 years, call a professional and ask them if you should replace it.
