Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Heat Pump
Sometimes the easiest thing to do is continue to have your heat pump repaired when you encounter issues, waiting until it breaks down entirely before replacing the heat pump. However, at some point, continuing to have your heat pump repaired becomes no longer cost effective and you’re just putting your home more at risk of the heat pump breaking down completely. To avoid being left out in the cold, here are a few signs it is time to replace your heat pump:
- Continuously Rising Energy Bills. In the event that your monthly energy bills are continuously rising despite your energy consumption habits being unchanged, your heat pump may be to blame. Your heat pump’s failures in efficiency that can result in increasing energy bills can be addressed with periodic repairs and regular maintenance, but is unlikely to ever be completely rectified as your heat pump continues to age.
- Excessive Condensation. It is normal to have some condensation on your Northfield, OH home’s heat pump. When excessive condensation occurs, it can begin to cause issues for your heat pump and can lead to excessive condensation in your home. This type of issue is unlikely to be rectified with a simple repair.
- Frequent Repairs Required. Anytime you are dealing with a major appliance or feature in your home, we know that it is not a good sign when continuous repairs are needed. As your heat pump ages and more repairs are needed, a replacement should begin to be considered by the homeowner.
- Loud Noises. Normally, your heat pump should run in the background of your home. If you begin to notice loud noises coming from your heat pump, that is concerning. That begins to happen when the heat pump’s components begin to break down. Components breaking down and causing loud noises are a sign that the time for a replacement heat pump may be near.
- Old Age. As your heat pump ages, it will decline in functionality. Most heat pumps have a lifespan of around ten years. When your heat pump reaches the decade milestone, you should begin looking around for a replacement.
