Heating Tips: Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Heat Pump

The idea of replacing your existing heating system or even just the heat pump is one that nobody wants to entertain. Installing new systems takes a lot of work and resources. Given a choice between having no heat and spending some money now, however, you’ll find the later the more ideal choice. How does one know when it’s time to swap your old heat pump for a new one?

Brown and Reaves Services offers 24 hour heating repair service.

The are many signs that point to replacement being the best option. If you know where to look, then you’ll easily spot them. Still, you might be better off getting a heating professional’s opinion on the matter.

Things to Look for With Your Heating System

First, listen for weird noises coming from the heat pump. Noises usually mean there’s something loose or blocking passage ways. Sometimes it means your heat pump is close to its breaking point. You should also keep an eye out for some humidity problems in the house. An example would be one room or area that is warmer than the rest of the house. This means that your heat pump is not functioning correctly.

You should also watch your monthly energy consumption very closely. When you get your new bill in the mail, compare it against the last one to see if there are any suspicious changes. If you notice a gradual or sudden change, it might mean there is an issue with your heat pump or any other component of your heating system.

Repairs can usually remedy most of these problems but if you find that your unit needs frequent service, it may be time to seriously consider replacement. The costs for minor repairs over a prolonged period of time do add up quite fast. And remember, most new heating systems come with a 10 year parts and labor warranty, so you could really save a lot of money on service and repair calls over that 10 year span with a new heating system.
