Replacing your heat pump in Socorro, TX, may require a sizable investment, but it may set you back even further to keep pouring money into a failing system. You’ll need to consider your current system’s age, level of wear and tear and other factors before you decide whether to replace your heat pump.
Experts might tell you to replace your heat pump after 10 years as a general rule of thumb. However, note that heat pumps can last up to 20 years if the owners make sure to schedule professional maintenance at least once a year. Twice a year, in spring and fall, is even better.
Old or new, a heat pump that performs poorly in spite of repairs is only fit for replacement. Signs of poor performance include rapid cycling and extremely long run times. Cycles exceeding 15 minutes, and a frequency of more than three cycles per hour, will spell trouble and usually mean you won’t get the cool or warm air you want.
Your monthly bill will naturally spike at the start of the heating and cooling seasons, but any other increase may point to inefficient HVAC performance. For this reason, your bill can provide a timely reminder for you to switch to a new system.
Heat pumps help to remove humidity and pollutants from the air. If the air in your home has become uncomfortably humid or is irritating asthma and allergy sufferers in your household, the heat pump may be to blame.
