Despite its name, your home’s heat pump is essential to staying comfortable in the winter as well as the summer. Eventually you’ll need heat pump replacement, which is where the HVAC experts of Bigham’s One Hour come in. Allow us to help you recognize the signs that you might need to replace your heat pump.
High Energy Bills
If you’ve noticed that your energy bills are higher than they usually are and you’re using your HVAC system the same as you normally do, the problem could be your heat pump. Your heat pump is the one appliance in your home that probably uses the most electricity, which means that it can seriously take a toll on your energy bills if it malfunctions. Instead of using candles to light up your home to lower your bill, consider heat pump replacement.
Compromised Heating and Cooling Ability
Since your unit cools as well as heats, the ability of both can be compromised if your heat pump is on the fritz. If you have a heat pump that’s at least 15 years old or almost 15 years old, it may be time to think about getting a new model to save yourself money and frustration.
Frequent Repair Bills
If you’ve had to call a professional for Santa Rosa HVAC repair several times in the last year for your heat pump, the appliance might be letting you know that it’s on its last legs. If you’ve had to pay more than $500 for repairs in the last year, it’s better to cut your losses and buy a new heat pump.
The experienced professionals of One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of the Bay Area specialize in quality heat pump replacement. If you suspect that your heat pump might be ready to give its last pump, give us a call.
