Typically, heat pumps offer a service life between 10 and 20 years, with 15 years being their average lifespan. Maintenance plays a significant role in how long a pump lasts. Great maintenance can help you achieve a longer system life, while neglected maintenance typically takes your pump out of service sooner.
If your heating system is at or getting close to the 10-year mark and you experience trouble, it may be time to install a new heating system. If the repair costs in an older heat pump are equal to or more than $500, we recommend getting an estimate for a new, energy-efficient model with a 10-year parts warranty.
If you’ve been doing your fair share of research trying to find if there’s any way to know whether your pump will soon break down before it actually does, you’re in luck! Many signs point to a bad heat pump, signaling it’s time for a replacement. If you are considering heat pump installation or replacement in Columbus, GA., watch for these signs that help you decide when it is time:
If your heat pump is 10 to 20 years old, or beyond, start looking into replacement now. It’s always better to plan ahead for these things rather than replacing your system due to a sudden and surprising breakdown. When you begin to look for a new pump before your current one breaks down, you’ll be prepared and have a replacement in mind, saving you time and restoring your home’s comfort quicker.
More repair needs are common in the last few years of a system’s service life. If you’ve had to call for heating unit repairs more often over the last few seasons, you require heat pump installation.
This is a problem at any age if the unit is undersized or oversized for the home. As a heat pump ages, it may also experience performance issues that leave you without enough heating or cooling.
