Like anything in your Florida home with moving parts, your heat pump may eventually come to the end of its life span. Even with regular and routine maintenance, heat pumps will eventually need to be replaced after 10 to 15 years of service.

5 Signs It is Time to Replace Your Heat Pump
When it comes to a replacement, your system doesn’t have to stop working completely for you to consider replacing it. There are many signs that it is coming close to a heat pump’s time to be replaced. Here are five signs that may mean it’s time for a replacement:
1. Constantly Needing Repairs
The occasional call for service is normal, but when our Air Flow Designs technician is on your speed dial, it is time to have us help you pick a better, more reliable heat pump. Repair costs can add up fast, and when you no longer need those frequent service visits, what you save in money and time will more than make up for the cost of a new heat pump.
2. Unusual Noises
Mechanical systems are designed to run smoothly, with little friction and very little internal resistance. If there are constant noises from a heat pump, that is usually a sign that their components and moving parts are starting to wear down. The noises can be traced to specific components, such as faulty ductwork, loose vents, dirty filters, and worn-out motors.
3. Rising Energy Bills
Heat pumps run for most of the year, so your energy bill should be fairly consistent month to month. If you start to notice a steady rise in your bill without a huge change in appliances in your home, it is a good chance that conditioned air is getting lost somewhere in your home, meaning energy is being wasted. Since we work with all makes and models, our dedicated and knowledgeable team can find the best energy-efficient option for you within your budget.
4. Inconsistent Temperatures
If there are hot or cold spots throughout your house, there is a serious issue with your HVAC system. A heat pump should keep a constant and consistent temperature in your home. A change of the entire system might be necessary after taking a deep evaluation of inconsistent temperatures in your home.
5. Aging Equipment
Even with the proper and regular maintenance, the best of systems may need to be replaced after time, especially with products that were made when R-22 was permitted. After all, your heat pump is constantly working, even in Florida’s famous heat. After 10 to 15 years of service, it is recommended that the heat pump is replaced in its entirety. In addition to getting a more reliable system, you’ll likely get a more energy-efficient one, too.
