When to Choose Heat Pump Replacement
It’s always better to replace your HVAC system before it fails. Most people choose replacement as a preventive measure. As a general rule, consider your heat pump’s age. Is it 10-years old or older? HVAC experts recommend replacing the system at this point because repairs offer only short-term solutions.
Replacing an older HVAC system system also lets you take advantage of the following new technologies:
- Dual-source heat pumps
- Two-speed compressor
- Dual and variable motor speeds
Today’s high-efficiency ENERGY STAR models also offer superior savings on monthly heating and cooling costs.
When Heat Pump Repairs Make Better Financial Sense
Has your system remained relatively problem-free and well-maintained? Is the system well under the 10-year mark? Is the cost of repairs 40% or less than the cost of a new HVAC system?
If you answer yes to these questions, technicians will likely recommend repairs. Common problems that affect HVAC systems include:
- Damaged reversing valves
- Capacitor failure
- Iced-over outdoor condenser
- Refrigerant leaks
