Do I Need a New Heat Pump?

Summer is here, and you’re going to want to make sure that your heat pump system is ready to keep you cool for the next few months. If your system is not up to the task, now is the time to replace it. You don’t want your heat pump system to break down on you in the middle of summer, right? Read on for some of the signs that you need to install a new heat pump before summer gets into full swing.

Rising Bills

The more you use your heat pump over the years, the more the various parts inside it are going to wear out. As the heat pump wears out, it will become less and less efficient at cooling the home. This will force the system to stay on for a longer period of time in order to compensate for the efficiency loss, which will, in-turn, lead to higher monthly bills. If your bills are going up for no apparent reason, it may be because you need to replace your heat pump.

Repair Costs

A heat pump doesn’t normally need repairs more than once every few years. The more worn out the system gets, though, the more parts of it will start to fail. Heat pumps that are near the end of their lives tend to start having parts fail in rapid succession. If you need to have your system repaired every few months, it’s a definite sign that you need to replace your system. You’re already replacing it one piece at a time, anyway. It will be far cheaper in the long run to just install an entirely new system.
