At some point, you’ll need to replace your current heat pump. How do you tell when that time has come, though? Let’s explore a few signs that show it’s time to consider a heat pump replacement in your Yulee, FL, home.
Heat Pump Runs Constantly
A heat pump in good condition heats or cools your home in cycles. Heat pump issues, such as a clogged air filter, a dirty condenser and refrigerant leaks, may cause your heat pump to run constantly.
Repairs can easily take care of these issues. However, if an undersized heat pump causes your system to run continuously, you’ll need a replacement.
Indoor Air Quality Issues
Your heat pump should regulate your indoor humidity levels along with your home’s temperatures. If your indoor air is overly humid, like if you feel sweaty despite the air not being hot, there’s likely an issue.
Your heat pump should also keep your indoor air clean. A failing system may be why your family starts to experience symptoms of poor indoor air quality such as sneezing, watery eyes and headaches.
Consider using dehumidifiers if your system is relatively new. However, if the system is older than 10 years, consider replacing it.
System Breaks Down Often
Regular breakdowns translate to frequent periods of discomfort, which are very frustrating. Also, it’s expensive to repair a system that breaks down often.
Consider getting a new system to reduce repair costs and downtime. Also, if your heat pump has multiple faulty components, replacing the whole system might be more cost-efficient than replacing several parts.
High Energy Bills
Several issues can cause your heat pump to consume more energy than usual. You don’t need to buy a new heat pump if the culprit is a minor issue, such as a clogged air filter. However, you’ll need a new system if you have a complex problem, such as an incorrectly sized heat pump.
