Heat pumps are powerful all-in-one systems. They provide consistent comfort to your home all year round. Because they are working full-time throughout the year, they typically don’t last as long as units that provide only heating or cooling. The average lifespan is 10 to 14 years before the need for heat pump replacement. How long a particular heat pump lasts depends on a number of factors, including the condition of a home’s ductwork, its insulation and how often the unit has been maintained. Upgrading your heat pump with a replacement, when it is time, will save you on energy bill costs, provide greater reliability and increase the level of comfort in your home.

If it is time to replace your heat pump system, you do not want to trust just anyone. Installing a system that does not fit your home or business can cause years of headache. The heat pump replacement technicians at Vines Restoration, Plumbing & HVAC are trained and skilled at analyzing a property and choosing a heat pump system that will work efficiently. They will also work with you to choose a unit that works best with your needs and budget.

Is A Heat Pump A Good Choice?

Let’s take a look at some of the situations where a heat pump is the best option for an HVAC system.

First, if you have plans to replace both the heater and air conditioner around the same time, a heat pump may be the best solution. If you currently have separate units, such as a furnace and AC, and both have come to the end of their lifespan, then having a heat pump installed as a replacement makes sense. A heat pump is more expensive than a furnace or AC by themselves, but it is less expensive than having to buy and install both. It is also a more efficient system for heating and cooling.

A second situation where a heat pump is a great option, is if you live in a place that does not have a gas line and you have been using an electric furnace. Changing to a heat pump will save you a lot of money on electricity. A furnace uses electricity to directly heat the air, whereas a heat pump only uses it to move the heat. Heat pumps are a great choice for homes that have to use electricity only to heat the home.

Heat Pump Efficiency Ratings

Heat pumps are extremely efficient systems. You can cut your cooling and heating costs up to around 50% by installing a new heat pump or with a heat pump replacement. To get the most savings, choose a system that is certified by Energy Star. Finding out a unit’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio SEER and its Heating Seasonal Performance Factor HSPF will help you evaluate its performance. For both of these rating systems, the higher the rating, the greater the savings.

SEER ratings measure a unit’s cooling efficiency based on the amount of cooling the system puts out per its energy use. The minimum requirement for a system is a rating of 14, and can go up to 25.
HSPF ratings are based on the total heating output compared to its energy consumption. The minimum requirement is 8.3, and systems that rate above 10 are considered high efficiency systems.
