    If you need expert heat pump replacement for your Virginia Beach home, our technicians at Ace Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. are always up to the task. Heat pumps are versatile appliances capable of keeping your house comfortable all year long. But when you rely on a single appliance for comfort throughout the entire year, it’s especially important to keep that appliance functioning properly. So, if you have an older heat pump that’s starting to decline in performance and efficiency, you should seriously consider having it replaced. Ace Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning Inc., our team will be happy to guide you through that entire process. Our HVAC technicians are licensed, insured, and highly experienced in working with various models of heat pumps.

    Is Your Heat Pump in Decline?

    Although the average lifespan for a household heat pump is 10 to 15 years, there’s no universal answer for when you should replace the one in your home. Usually, if you keep up with maintenance and take good care of the appliance, it will get close to that 15-year mark before it starts to lose its effectiveness. However, there are no guarantees, and once you’ve had your heat pump for more than a decade, you should start keeping a close eye on its condition and performance. As long as the system is continuing to keep your home comfortable and running efficiently, there’s no reason to rush into purchasing a replacement. But once you start to see warning signs that it’s nearing the end of its lifespan, you certainly shouldn’t ignore them.

    Every heat pump is different, and the symptoms won’t always be exactly the same when it begins to decline. That said, there are a handful of indicators that typically spell the end for an aging appliance. If you observe one or more of the following red flags, you should at the very least consider investing in a replacement heat pump.

    Constant Repairs – It’s never a good sign when your heat pump starts needing frequent repairs. Even if the majority of these problems are minor, it indicates that something isn’t right with the equipment. And if the appliance is more than 10 years old, it most likely tells you that it’s becoming worn out and needs to be replaced. By replacing the system, you should immediately start saving money and avoiding hassle by not having to deal with so many mechanical issues.

    Declining Efficiency – It’s entirely normal for a heat pump’s energy efficiency to gradually worsen as the appliance gets older. After all, an HVAC appliance will always be at its most efficient when it’s new. However, when your heat pump is truly close to the end of its productive lifespan, you may see a more pronounced spike in your monthly energy costs. Usually, this tells you that it’s time to move on and purchase a replacement heat pump. The monthly energy savings will start to reimburse you for the cost of the new system right away.

    Loud Noises – Heat pumps aren’t the quietest appliances even when they’re running smoothly, and it’s normal to hear a bit of noise when the unit is cycling. But, you’ll likely get used to your heat pump’s normal sounds after a while, so if it suddenly starts making louder noises, you should notice immediately. This could mean that the pump simply needs a minor repair, but it could also indicate that something more serious is wrong. And with an older heat pump, it’s probably wiser to replace it rather than pay for an expensive fix.

    Weak Airflow – Your heat pump’s primary job is to keep your home comfortable. So, when it starts losing its ability to perform that function, it’s time to start thinking about replacing the appliance. For example, if your heat pump is taking unusually long to heat or cool your home or failing to do so at all, it may be time to move on. Additionally, if you’re regularly noticing uneven temperatures around your household while the heat pump is running, that’s a sign of poor airflow as well. Our team at Ace Mechanical will be glad to inspect your heat pump and determine why it’s struggling, but investing in a replacement may be the most prudent choice.
