Many things can go wrong with a heat pump. Regardless of what is going wrong with the system, a trained HVAC technician can help. They will come out and diagnose the problem before recommending the appropriate solution. In certain situations, such as when the unit is more than 10-15 years old, they might recommend replacing the existing unit with a new one. Homeowners rarely want to encounter this significant expense, but thanks to technological advances, they may find they save on their energy bills each month. Discuss the options with a highly trained HVAC technician to determine the best options for your property and budget.
Heat pump replacements are recommended when the cost of the repair is high. A technician makes this decision using one of many methods. For example, they may take the cost of the repair and multiply it by the age of the unit. If the resulting figure exceeds the price of a heat pump replacement, they will recommend a new system.
In addition, if the homeowner has two costly repairs within a single season, they will suggest it is time for a heat pump replacement. Rising utility bills and loud noises that a repair won’t eliminate are two additional reasons to consider replacing the heat pump sooner rather than later. We recommend talking with a professional to learn the options for repairing or replacing the unit.
Reduce the need for heat pump repair or replacement with the help of regular maintenance. This involves more than changing the air filter regularly. We recommend having routine preventative maintenance on your system twice a year, once in the fall/winter and one time in the spring/summer. As the technician completes this inspection, they look for parts that are in danger of failing and will recommend replacing them before this happens. In addition, they make recommendations on ways to make the system more efficient.
