Get to Know Your Heat Pump
A heat pump is different than a furnace in that it doesn’t generate heat directly but rather transfers heat energy. This is similar to how an air conditioner functions, but a heat pump also has a reversing valve so that it can provide heating as well as cooling. The core components of a heat pump include a heat exchanger and a compressor that moves refrigerant. A heat pump is connected to an indoor air handler, which circulates the warmed and cooled air through ducts. Most homeowners in our region have an air-source heat pump, which means that it transfers heat to and from the ambient air. It’s common to pair an air-source heat pump with a furnace for those nights when it gets particularly cold. You also have the option of a ground-source heat pump, which is also called geothermal heating. Because it transfers heat energy to and from the ground, it remains efficient even when it’s very cold outside and thus does not require auxiliary heating.

Is It Time for a New Heat Pump?
There are two key factors in the optimal timing of heat pump replacement: age and performance. If your system is running well and has been properly maintained over the years, then you may be able to get 20 or even 25 years out of your unit. The average lifespan, however, is about 15 years, and if you’re experiencing problems, then we’ll generally recommend replacement at the 12-year mark or if the repair is going to cost you more than 50% of a new installation. Signs that a heat pump requires professional attention and may need to be replaced include warm and cold spots, inconsistent temperatures, short and long cycling, unusual odors and sounds, and increased dust accumulation.
Sign Up for An Annual Heat Pump Tune-Up
The best way to avoid premature heat pump replacement is to schedule seasonal maintenance. Since heat pumps both heat and cool, a tune-up prior to both winter and summer is recommended, and most heat pump warranties require it. We offer our Service Partner Plan, which covers not only the heat pump but also the gas or electric backup if applicable. As a plan member, you’ll receive priority service and a 10% discount on labor and materials should a repair or replacement be required.
