Even the most advanced heat pumps can start to fail after a decade. But if you regularly maintain your heat pump in Youngsville, LA, it may last for 15 to 20 years. In any event, you may have a feeling that the system needs replacement soon. Read on to learn about the most common warning signs of a heat pump that’s beyond repair.
Insufficient Heating and Cooling
Malfunctioning heat pumps will fail to deliver the warm or cold air their owners want, and this can combine with other issues like short-cycling or extremely long cycles. If you’ve noticed this, and if you’ve tried to have it repaired to no avail, then there may be no choice left but to replace the whole system.
In addition, consider how many times the heat pump has broken down recently. More than two or three heat pump repairs a year should raise concerns. The more extensive and expensive the repairs, the more you should lean toward a system replacement.
Abnormally High Utility Bill
Less-than-stellar heating and cooling will impact your monthly bill in an obvious way. If your bill has shot up and you can’t explain it by pointing to your temperature setting or the weather, get a new system. You’ll save in the long run.
Dirty Indoor Air
The indoor air quality will usually plummet when the heat pump is on its last legs. This translates to high humidity levels, stale air and pollutants that trigger asthma and allergy symptoms.
