When Should I Replace My Heat Pump?

Winter can be quite brutal here in Colorado. You want to stay warm all season long—and, to do so, you’ll need a working heat pump. Heat pumps can encounter a wide range of issues. Thankfully, most are pretty easy to figure out. But what exactly happens when a heat pump gives out completely? Do you repair or replace?

If your heat pump isn’t performing as it should, it might be time for a replacement. Follow along as the HVAC experts at Good Guys Home Services explain the five signs that suggest you need a heat pump replacement.

5 Signs You Need a Heat Pump Replacement in CO

Before replacing your heat pump, ask yourself if you have experienced any of the following:

1. Your heat pump has required multiple repairs.

One repair is no big deal. Two repairs? Not ideal. Three repairs? You’re in for some bad news, bud. Continuing to repair a heat pump is like throwing money down the drain. If your heat pump is faulty or over 15 years old, replacement can be a much cheaper (and better!) long-term investment.

2. You hear unusual noises coming from the system.

Heating pumps make noises, especially when they start and stop. However, if you’re hearing something out of the ordinary, like popping, banging, or cracking, you should call an HVAC technician to get an evaluation done ASAP.

3. Your energy costs are rising.

Notice a spike in your energy costs? If your heat pump is beginning to fail, you might see evidence of it on your electric bill first. Wouldn’t you rather see energy savings on your heating bill, not energy draining? Ask one of our technicians about which energy-efficient heat pump models they recommend for your space.

4. Your home is unevenly heated.

Is one room really warm while another feels like an icebox? If yes, your heat pump isn’t evenly heating your home. Opting for a replacement can provide better comfort for your home than a repair, especially if you’ve tried repair in the past.

5. Your heat pump is over 15 years old.

If extremely well-maintained, a heat pump can last up to 25 years. But, on average, a heat pump lasts about 15 years before it starts to cause major issues. Don’t sink your hard earned cash into an old unit—if it’s over 15 years old, a replacement will be less costly in the long run.
