Though they are a major investment, new heat pumps have a lot to offer. HVAC systems are built to last 10 to 15 years, and they show signs of wear and tear before breaking down for good. Here are four signs you need a new heat pump for your home:

Increasing Energy Bills

Heating a home is expensive, but it’s not prohibitively so. If your energy bills are inexplicably high, it’s time to consider a new heat pump.

Clogged filters, electrical shorts and hardware issues can lead to an overworked heat pump. An increased draw on electricity is a surefire indication that something needs fixing before it leads to extensive damage.

Aging System

No one wants to spend money when they don’t have to. New designs and advances ensure newer heat pumps are far more efficient than older ones, resulting in monthly energy savings.

Advancing Technology

Making the proposition of buying a new HVAC system more enticing is the ability to use smart thermostats and other technological advances to save money. There are new systems available that allow homeowners to control their home’s temperature from their smartphone. They can turn the heat on or off in individual or multiple rooms or turn on settings to detect human movement and heat rooms in occupied spaces. This type of technology can save a lot of money.

Needing Repairs

Repairing an HVAC system from time to time is normal. But if your repair costs start to get out of control, it might be time to invest in a new heat pump. When a few problems turn into many, it’s a signal that the system will soon fail completely. It’s wearing out.
