As winter temperatures become more frequent, a functional heating system is a must-have in your Jackson, MS, home. Essentially, the heat pump efficiency deteriorates over its lifespan, sometimes causing heating trouble. Here’s how to tell that it’s time to get a new heat pump for your home.
Frequent Emergency Repairs
Your heat pump requires professional maintenance at least once every year. HVAC maintenance will ensure minimal repairs during winter. However, if your heating system keeps breaking down, your technician may recommend that it’s a good idea to start thinking about a new heating system.
Handling frequent heating repairs can drain you financially, especially if the warranty period is over. HVAC breakdowns also make your home cold and uncomfortable, feelings that you don’t want. Consider replacing your heat pump instead when repair expenses are close to 50% of the cost of a new system.
Unexpected Energy Bill Increase
Your energy expenses should stay consistent throughout the cold winter. A sudden and unexplained spike in your monthly energy bills could be another sign that your home needs a new heating system.
Call in an expert to help establish the reasons behind the extreme energy bills. If your heat pump is the problem, schedule a maintenance appointment to help restore pocket-friendly electricity consumption. If the energy bills remain high, it will help if you replace the HVAC system. New heat pumps are much more energy efficient than those manufactured even 10 years ago.
Different Temperature Zones
Ideally, your heat pump should provide consistent temperatures in all rooms in your home. If some rooms feel comfortably warm while others remain cold, it could be nearing the end of its life cycle. Replacing the heat pump will restore balanced warm temperatures throughout your house.
