Heat Pump Replacement Tips

No matter how hard you try to keep something in good shape, eventually, you will need to replace it. A common question that many homeowners have is how long can they expect their heating equipment to last. If you have a heat pump, here is some information about how often you should replace your heat pump.

How Long Will My Heat Pump Last?

When it comes to how long you can expect your heat pump to last, there are so many different factors to consider. Some heat pumps can remain in good condition for up to two decades. However, the average lifespan of a heat pump is 15 years. As long as you have your system inspected on a yearly basis, you can expect your heat pump to easily last you more than 10 years.

The Model Matters

The model and make of the heat pump will have a major impact on its life span. Newer systems tend to last longer than older units. The quality and frequency of heat pump maintenance is also a major factor. If you want to maintain the warranty of your heat pump and keep it clean and running efficiently, you should schedule heating maintenance every fall from a trustworthy HVAC company. Not only you should have your heating system inspected for issues, but you should have it fully cleaned.

Rely On Experts For Installation

A proper and professional installation is a must if you want your heat pump to have a long life span. Make sure your system is installed but a reputable dealer. Energy Star conducted a study and found over 50 percent of new HVAC systems are not installed properly. Improper installation can lead to a reduction in efficiency levels by 30 percent and can lead to comfort issues, premature breakdowns, dehumidification, and insufficient air distribution. Therefore, you should pay close attention to how your new heat pump is installed.
