Before summer arrives and you start using your heat pump in Ladson, SC, check to see that it’ll run for another season. It could be that this will be the last season it runs. Here’s when you should start seriously thinking about replacing your heat pump:
System is Past Its Prime
First, look at the age of your heat pump. While these systems can last 15 to 20 years, this is only the ideal. It depends on them getting annual maintenance and not running continuously, as they would in extreme climates. Some experts say to replace the system after 10 years, but we believe that you shouldn’t do so unless the next factor is present.
Frequent Heat Pump Repairs
Any mechanical system incurs wear and tear over time, but the question you want to ask is whether you can rectify them with repairs. Maybe you’ve spent hundreds or thousands of dollars already on repairs, and the heat pump still short-cycles, blows out lukewarm air and spits out other problems at you. There’s no reason to endure such a situation.
Polluted Indoor Air Quality
With inefficient heating and cooling come high humidity levels and stagnant air within the home. Before you request indoor air quality services, know that an outright heat pump replacement could restore the cleanliness of your indoor air and provide relief to anyone with asthma or allergies.
