When spring arrives in Manchester, MD, you want to consider your heat pump and determine if it can last for the summer. Maybe you’ve become familiar with the three issues listed below. In that case, you may do well to replace your heat pump.
Does your heat pump switch on and off rapidly without ever reaching your set point? Or does it run forever without effectively cooling your home? Maybe you’ve noticed that some rooms never get the cool air they need.
These and other signs of inefficient performance may point to a faulty component, which means repairs. However, if you’ve already had repairs done, these troubles may signify a heat pump that’s on its way out.
Consider how frequent the repairs are and how expensive they are. While it’s normal for even a well-maintained heat pump to need repairs every few years, you shouldn’t have to face any more than that.
Combine this with a consideration of your heat pump’s age. If you need a motor replaced, for example, and your system is nearing 15 or 20 years old, then a complete replacement may be better. With a system under 10 years old, though, it may be worth paying for the repair.
Unusually High Utility Bills
Maintenance can keep your energy bills reasonable, but when a heat pump starts to go irreversibly bad, it can cause your bills to skyrocket. Ask yourself if this has happened and whether or not it’s due to a change in your cooling schedule and/or temperature settings.
