Heat pumps can last a pretty long time, as long as you take proper care of them. They don’t last forever, though. After a couple of decades, your heat pump is going to get worn out to the point where it needs to be replaced. You’re going to want to be able to tell when your heat pump nears the end of its life, so that you can get a new one installed as soon as possible. Otherwise, the system might die on you when you need it most. Take a look at the following signs that you need to install a new heat pump in your home.
Over many years of operation, the various parts that make up the heat pump will accumulate wear and tear. They will eventually get so worn down that they will start to lose efficiency, which will force the system to stay on for a longer period of time to affect the same temperature changes. As a result, your heat pump will cost more and more to operate. If your heat pump bills seem to be rising for no apparent reason, it may be because you need a new heat pump.
More Repairs Than Ever
Eventually, the buildup of wear and tear on the various parts of the system will be too much for them to handle. At that point, groups of parts in the system will start to fail. You shouldn’t need to repair your heat pump more than a handful of times during its life. If you suddenly have to repair your heat pump every couple of months, you should probably take that as a sign that it needs to be replaced.
