How Long Should My Heat Pump Last?
With regular use, heat pumps should last in your home for at least 10 years. With routine maintenance and proper care, heat pumps can last up to 20 years. If your heat pump has been well maintained and is 15 years or older, it’s wise to start thinking about replacement.
You could wait for your heat pump to give out completely, but preemptive action can save you from making an emergency replacement. In addition to the age of your heat pump, there are other signs it could be time for a replacement:
Rising energy bills. After having the same heat pump for many years, you know what it costs to keep your home comfortable in all seasons. If you’ve noticed a steady rise in energy bills over the past few months, you should schedule a repair and brace yourself for a possible replacement.
Odd performance. If you regularly notice short-cycling, unnecessary defrost cycles, or other malfunctions, your heat pump is likely nearing the end of its life.
Comfort problems. If your old heat pump isn’t performing like it used to, you might notice uneven temperatures and high humidity throughout your home. Do away with these comfort problems by replacing your heat pump sooner rather than later.
Frequent breakdowns. You’ll only tolerate your finicky, old heat pump for so long. If your heat pump keeps turning on and off, runs continuously, or just won’t come on, it could be time to invest in a new system you can depend on.
