When Do I Need a New Heat Pump?

Are you thinking about replacing your heat pump? Or maybe you’ve never lived in a house with a heat pump before and you’re not sure what to expect from it? Either way, there are some clear indicators when it’s time for heat pump replacement. If you notice any of these issues, contact us at Chad Love Services right away to get a heat pump you’ll be able to rely on for years. 

It’s Definitely Aging

Most heat pumps are designed to last 15-20 years, as long as they are maintained properly and used within their design limits. Some won’t last quite that long and others may last longer but, overall, that’s what you can expect.

If your pump is getting older, you should at least keep it in the back of your mind that it may be time for heat pump replacement soon. Some people choose to replace them proactively so they don’t face a major breakdown during the winter. 

You’re Too Cold

If your heat pump isn’t effectively warming your house, it’s probably time to get a new one. Our experts can come look and see if you need heat pump repairs or maintenance. If these will help, we’ll get them done ASAP. If the pump needs to be replaced, we’ll let you know that, too, then get a new one installed for you fast. 

It’s Not Working as Well

If you are noticing that your indoor air quality seems to be going down or your house is dustier, the problem may lie with your heat pump. You should also keep your senses open. If your heat pump is making unusual sounds, like banging and clanging, or if you smell an unusual odor when it runs, it’s time to get a new one. 

Your Bills Keep Climbing

As heat pumps age they stop using energy efficiently. This can lead to major increases in your energy bills. If your bills are climbing without any other explanation, call us to get your heat pump evaluated. We’ll let you know if it is the cause of those rising energy bills. If it is, we’ll help you get a new, more efficient model.
