Do I Need To Repair or Replace My Heat Pump?
Many people faced with a major repair ask whether or not pump repair is the best option. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It usually comes down to the condition of the heat pump. Below are some scenarios that help you determine if heat pump repair makes sense for your situation or if it’s better to replace your heat pump instead.
It’s Better To Repair Your Heat Pump If…
Generally, newer units are worth the expense of repairing them. It gets more questionable when the unit is around 10-12 years old. It’s at this age that we notice heat pumps having more and more issues. New heat pumps generally have a warranty so if your heat pump is still under its warranty, go for the heat pump repair option.
It’s Better To Replace Your Heat Pump If…
Older heat pump units are often in the replacement category, especially if they have a high breakdown ratio. If the unit is no longer under its warranty, consider replacing it. If the maintenance for the system has been inconsistent throughout its lifetime, then it probably needs replacement. If the unit is older than 12-years, it is reaching the end of its lifecycle. The question then becomes whether it is a better investment to repair it or is it better to put that money towards a new unit. Repairing it may get you through the winter or it may cost you another major repair. Replacing a questionable heat pump unit means you have a reliable system for winters and summers to come.
It is better to have a reliable heating and cooling system in place before winter or summer hit. You don’t want to be without heat for a day while new heat pump installation occurs. It is better to replace the unit on your terms rather than to suffer through a breakdown of the system and then an installation.Schedule Service
Common Heat Pump Problems
Heat pumps are very reliable and when they are well maintained, they rarely need pump repair service calls. However, there can be issues that crop up and when they do, a service call can often stop the progression from a minor issue to a major breakdown.
Heat pumps are quiet, which is one of their many benefits. If your heat pump becomes loud there is something wrong with it. Even it is still producing warm or cold air, call for heat pump repair.
High Energy Bills
Another benefit of these systems is that they are highly efficient. They use a small amount of electricity to function. If the unit is driving up your utility bill, call for heat pump repair. A tune-up service call can help return the unit to factory settings where it uses a minimal amount of energy to function.
Ice Forming Inside Unit
The evaporator coils will frost when the unit is preparing to make cold air. It should form ice and the ice should not last. If you notice ice build-up in the unit call for heat pump repair. The ice can cause the compressor to freeze or the unit to break. Like an HVAC system or air conditioners, there should be no ice inside the unit.
Short cycling is a serious issue as it can damage the unit. This is when your unit turns on and then off rapidly and does this repeatedly. Not only causes a huge spike in energy consumption, but it usually doesn’t produce the warm or cool air you need. If you notice the unit is short cycling, call for a heat pump repair service call.
Poor Temperature Control
If the heat pump is not providing quality heating and cooling, it needs service. The problem may be small, and easy to correct or it could be the unit is on the verge of breaking down.Schedule Service
Heat Pump Tune Ups Can Help Extend The Life of Your System
Your investment into your heat and cooling pump system can be extended with annual tune ups for the system. These are essential for heating and cooling and should be done twice per year – once for the heating system and once for the cooling system.
A tune up service call makes sure that all of the fittings are solid and that any debris inside of the unit is removed. Debris can cause the drain holes in the bottom of the unit to clog so water does not drain. The tune up also resets the system to factory settings so that the pump can run at high efficiency. Because the tune up service call puts the unit back to normal operation, there is less wear on the moving parts and the system is likely to break down less often.Schedule Service
