Heat pumps are used in homes and businesses throughout the Cincinnati area to provide reliable heating and cooling any time of year. Our customers love them for their versatility, energy efficiency, and long service life.
That being said, a heat pump’s life will one day come to an end. Below are some factors to consider when evaluating if it is the right time to replace your heat pump.
The heat pump’s age
A heat pump typically lasts much longer than a traditional furnace or air conditioner. Heat pumps have a service life of approximately 20 to 25 years. If your system is nearing this age and you’re experiencing the other factors listed below, you should really start researching a replacement unit. If your equipment is nearing this age but has undergone regular maintenance, it may end up serving you for several more years!
The heat pump’s frequent need for repairs
As with furnaces and air conditioners, most repairs will happen within the last few years of a heat pump’s service life. It’s not that we don’t love to see you, but if you’ve been calling us for heat pump repairs repeatedly, you could really benefit from purchasing a new unit. You’ll benefit from better efficiency, more reliable comfort, and the warranty protection provided by the manufacturer.
The heat pump’s decreasing performance
If your heat pump just isn’t keeping your home or business that comfortable, it may be time to purchase a new system. Uneven heating or cooling, lack of heating and cooling, and increased energy costs are signs that your heat pump is losing efficiency and its performance is suffering.
