Warning Signs Your Heat Pump Needs Replacing

One of the most important parts of any home HVAC system is your heat pump. The heat pump is responsible for extracting outside heat into your home when it is cold out and removing heat from your home when it is too warm inside. A heat pump can often work for many years without the need for repair. However, there are some clear signs that it could be time to repair or replace your heat pump.

Air Produced is Not the Right Temperature

One of the clearest signs that your heat pump needs attention is if the air that is being produced is not the right temperature. If you notice that the air coming out of your vents is not the desired temperature, it could be due to a variety of issues including issues with the filters or valves, too much condensation, or obstruction in the ducts. In many situations, these parts may need to be replaced, but it could be a sign that the entire heat pump will need to be replaced as well.

Moisture Production

A heat pump is responsible for taking in warm air. When this combines with cold air, it could end up causing some condensation. In general, a little bit of condensation is nothing to be concerned about. However, if the outdoor temperature has not changed in a few days and it is still leaking, it could be a sign of a more significant underlying problem. Depending on how much it is leaking, you may want to disconnect the heat pump entirely until you are able to have it fully inspected.

Increasing Energy Bills

If you notice that your energy bills are increasing, it could be a sign that your heat pump is not working as efficiently as it used to. This could require you to complete some minor repairs or a full replacement. Having a full energy audit completed will be able to identify whether your heat pump is the cause.
