For those with an existing heat pump, there are still good reasons to get a quote on system replacement, especially if your system is over 10 years old. The average life of a heat pump is only five years past that and efficiency rapidly declines as a unit ages. Newer units feature efficiency improvements and dual fuel technology that can deliver significant savings over an aging system. Modern systems are also less likely to need repair during a heat wave or blizzard.

Signs It's Time to Replace Your Heat Pump

Do you already use a heat pump to maintain temperature in an addition or garage? Did you replace that clunky old furnace ages ago? Well, it might be time to upgrade it. Below are 4 signs it's time to replace your heat pump in Riverside or River Forest:

It's Old

Since they have to pull double duty, heat pumps don't last as long as furnaces or air conditioners. If yours needs repair and is more than 10 years old, it's time to consider heat pump replacement in Oak Park. The cost of repairs on older units is much higher than on newer ones. This is due to both a lack of older refrigerants and difficulties acquiring obsolete parts.

High Electric Bills

If you've noticed a huge uptick in your heating or cooling bills, then your old heat pump might be to blame. As these systems age, they begin to struggle to maintain temperature. While regular maintenance can keep your heat pump stumbling along, there comes a time when replacement is the better option.

Increased Inefficiency

Are you suddenly dealing with hot and cold spots? Is your heat pump not responding to changes as quickly as it used to? You might also notice that the unit's output isn't as good as it used to be. This is a very common in failing heat pumps and is an indicator of upcoming system replacement.
