Edwards Provides Affordable Heat Pump Installation and Replacement
Maybe you don’t know whether your heat pump needs to be replaced or not? Don’t worry, you and many other homeowners are facing the same uncertainty.
While every situation is unique, there are a few ways that you can tell for certain that you need a new heat pump:
Your current system is older than 10 years
In most cases, your heat pump is malfunctioning because of the age of the machinery. If you bought your home years ago, there’s no guarantee that the previous owner replaced the valve before selling the property. For those who purchased a new property, how long have you been living there?
Like all other machinery, heat pumps have lifespans. Ten years is the tail end of that longevity. If you’re unsure of how long your current device has been there, you can check the date on the machine itself. You can also check previous contractor paperwork, if you have it available.
Your energy bills are rising
Have you been noticing a continuous spike in your energy bill lately? Though you could attribute it to weather, you’ll want to make sure that other outside forces aren’t at play. Monitor your energy usage for a week to determine whether the changes are lifestyle or external. If you aren’t increasing your use of appliances or energy, your heat pump could be the culprit.
Contact the Edwards team to schedule a heating maintenance and servicing on your device. From there, we’ll determine whether it’s the problem or not.
Your unit isn’t performing well
Do you constantly notice strange noises coming from your heat pump unit? If so, there’s a problem. The machinery is designed to run with minimal friction or internal resistance. Weird sounds indict that the internal parts of the pump are grinding against one another. In some cases, cleaning the device stops the noises, but if that doesn’t help, consider replacement.
Also, make note of the overall heating and cooling in your home. Is every room consistently the same temperature? Or do you notice some spaces are too hot while others are freezing? A regular maintenance appointment with the Edwards team will have you on the way towards a properly functioning heat pump.
It needs frequent repairs
If you need multiple repairs in a single year, replacement will save you time and money. Of course, if you are still unsure, feel free to contact our Edwards team. We can come out and perform an inspection of your heat pump unit. We’ll get to the root of the problem and then make a game plan for you on how to proceed.
How Long Does a Heat Pump Typically Last?
A professionally installed heat pump should last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. The device is flexible and works well in moderate climates. The pump extracts heat energy from the surrounding environment and moves it to another location.
- In the winter, the heat energy is moved from the outside to the inside
- In the summer, the heat energy is moved from the inside to the outside
- Heat pumps can be ground source or air source, depending on the environment
- Ground source devices are called geothermal heat pumps
