Replacing Heat Pumps: Signs it’s Time for a New One
While some condensation is normal for a heat pump, excessive condensation can cause problems and lead to excessive moisture in your home. This issue is unlikely to be resolved with a simple repair and may require a replacement.
Age of Your Heat Pump
As your heat pump ages, its functionality declines. Most heat pumps have a lifespan of around ten years. When your heat pump reaches this milestone, it’s advisable to start looking for a replacement.
Lack of Comfort
If your heat pump fails to deliver the level of comfort you expect, replacing it with a newer and more efficient model is often a better solution than enduring discomfort.
Frequent Professional Repairs
If your heat pump requires yearly professional repairs, it may no longer be worth the investment. Continuing to repair an old and problematic system can be costly and inefficient.
Professional Heat Pump Installation for Best Results
Installing a heat pump yourself is not recommended. It is a long-term investment attached to your house for over a decade. It’s crucial to have your heat pump professionally installed by experts who can ensure proper installation and peak performance throughout its lifespan.
Cost of Heat Pump Installation
Installing a heat pump differs from installing a standard furnace or boiler because it can heat and cool your home. The cost of a new heat pump installation depends on various factors, with the type of heat pump being the most significant factor. The size of your home may also affect the cost, as larger homes may require larger units. For an accurate quote tailored to your specific needs, contact Fite Plumbing today at (317) 271-5400.
