Have you noticed a decrease in the performance of the heat pump in your Williamsport, MD home? That could mean it’s time to get a new heat pump. Fortunately, there are some warning signs that indicate your heat pump is nearing the end of its lifespan.
The Heat Pump Hardly Ever Turns Off
A heat pump that’s functioning the right way operates in cycles. It should switch on and turn off when your home reaches the desired temperature. But when something is wrong, the heat pump might run almost constantly.
The Temperature in Your Home Is Never Comfortable
Your home should feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If your home never seems to have the right temperature, the heat pump may no longer be effectively moving the air.
A heat pump that doesn’t get regular maintenance will become less efficient faster than one that’s well-maintained. In the case of an older heat pump, it will likely become less effective because of its age. A home that’s never at a comfortable temperature is a sign of an inefficient heat pump.
Bad Indoor Air Quality
The heat pump affects the ventilation and humidity in your home. If the heat pump isn’t working correctly, it can affect your air in several ways. Your home might feel humid, the air might smell stale, or you might develop allergies.
The Heat Pump Keeps Breaking Down
If your heat pump needs several repairs within a year, it’s time to consider a new heat pump. If the cost of repairs is more than the cost of a new heat pump, it’s likely time for an upgrade. A new heat pump will work better and require fewer repairs.
The Heat Pump Is Loud and Making Strange Sounds
You should hear a sound when the heat pump starts and stops a cycle. But what’s not normal is for a heat pump to make random noises during a cycle. Banging, grinding, and squealing mean the heat pump needs attention.
