No matter how well you take care of your Plant City, FL, home’s appliances, there comes a time when you need to replace them. Unfortunately, that also applies to your heat pump. If you notice any of the following signs, it’s probably time to start picking out a new heat pump for your home.
Your Heat Pump Runs Constantly
When a heat pump is in good working order, it’ll turn off once your home reaches the temperature setting on your thermostat. Then, it will turn back on when the temperature rises above or drops below that setting. If you notice that your heat pump is running constantly, it’s a sign that the system can no longer keep up with your temperature demands. A system that runs constantly is struggling and produces higher utility bills while being more prone to system failures.
You’re Scheduling More Frequent Repairs
Have you noticed that you’re calling more frequently for repairs on your heat pump? If so, you should consider upgrading to a new system. If your annual repair costs are more than half the cost of a new heat pump, it’s probably time to install a newer system that doesn’t require such frequent repairs.
Your Utility Bills Are Spiking
Finally, if you notice a major increase in your monthly utility bills, especially when you’ve been using your heat pump more often, a new system may benefit you. While a slight variance in your utility bills, especially in summer and winter, is normal, these increases should be minimal. If your utility bills rise significantly, you should consider a new, energy-efficient heat pump.
