Littleton HVAC Tip

Did you know that since heat pumps move heat instead of generating it, they can provide up to 4 times of energy that is needed to power them? And since they work for both heating and cooling, they are a great solution for many homes. Though they might need a supplementary heating system during the coldest winter months, their impressive efficiency often makes them a good investment.

Knowing You Need to Replace Your Heat Pump

Step one is to determine if you need a replacement at all. Sometimes, panic can get the best of us – some funny sounds, a skyrocketing heating bill and a few flashing LED lights and we assume the heat pump is permanently broken. However, that’s not always the case. Sometimes, these are just symptoms of a worn out part that can be easily replaced.

To know for sure whether you need a full system replacement, pay close attention to your heat pump over the course of a few days or weeks. Check for common issues like uneven heating in your home, or a lack of overall capacity. If the heat pump can no longer get the hot or cold air into your home as sufficiently as it once did, there is definitely a problem. It may be a simple repair or it may be a major malfunction.

Another problem you may notice is a much higher energy bill. In the summer especially, check your energy bill to see what you are spending on air conditioning. If it rises sharply from month to month without an increase in the rate, the heat pump isn’t working properly.

Heat Pump Repair or Replacement?

Just because your heat pump breaks doesn’t mean it’s time for a replacement. It happens every now and then – a part will wear out, debris clogs a filter, or your ductwork needs servicing. Often these issues are caught during annual maintenance, but not always. However, if you start to need repairs constantly – more than once per season – it’s often a sign of a bigger problem that needs to be addressed.

Sometimes, it can be fixed with a closer inspection of the device, but if the heat pump is getting old and fails regularly, the odds are pretty good that it’s time for a replacement.
