Heat pumps are excellent systems for keeping your home comfortable all year round. But no matter how well you take care of it, it’s not going to last forever. The progression of time and just normal use will eventually wear out your system. When that happens, it’ll be time to replace it.
You certainly don’t want your heat pump to die on you in the middle of a hot summer day, so now is the perfect time to determine if your heat pump is in fact ready for replacement. Keep reading for some of the common signs that your system is suffering.
Once your heat pump reaches about 15-20 years of age, it’s past the prime of its life. You can try to keep running it for another decade, but you’ll more than likely find yourself facing numerous problems such as too-frequent repairs and a drop in both heating and cooling output.
Under normal circumstances—and assuming that you keep up on your routine heat pump maintenance appointments—you shouldn’t have to have your system repaired more than once every couple of years.
As your systems ages, however, the increased wear and tear form years of use will cause parts to break down more frequently. If you have to have your heat pump repaired every few months, it means you’re likely going to need to replace it soon.
Decline in Output
As your heat pump gets older, its output is going to drop due to its components wearing out. Your heat pump will need to operate for longer and longer to get the job done, which will start to cost you more and more money. If you notice your bills rising despite your heat pump giving you less output, then you should think about replacing it.
