Heat Pump Replacement in Midlothian

When your heat pump stops working in Midlothian, repair is normally the preferred route.

Regrettably, a repair isn’t always possible—or worth the monetary investment .

Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. can help if your heat pump is is far from an easy fix. We’ll help you select a new system that meets your budget, energy-efficiency goals and home comfort needs.

4 Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Heat Pump

Even if you’re certain your heat pump is scheduled for replacement, it can be beneficial to check for common signs to double check. It may be time to get rid of your heating and cooling system if any of the following apply to your heat pump.

  • Your heat pump is more than 10 years old. While we all wish our heat pumps could last forever, they have a pretty distinct life span. The longest timeline people usually get out of their system is 15 years. That’s an admirable goal, but not always feasible. If your system breaks down after its 10th birthday, it’s likely a better financial option to invest in a new system.
  • Your home comfort is declining. As your system ages, it has to work harder to maintain the same level of home comfort you’ve always had. Eventually, your system might lose some of that power. And if you’ve attempted to repair the issue with other repairs to no avail, it’s likely time to select a replacement.
  • Your heat pump seems to run all the time. Unless the Midlothian weather is extremely cold, your heat pump shouldn’t feel like it’s running constantly. Cycles are an essential part of the way heat pumps work. If they’re starting to become less frequent, you have a problem with your system.
  • Your utility bills are growing. When you originally got your heat pump, you presumably looked for an energy-efficient one. Over time, your machine might not be able to keep up. If you’re noticing your energy bills increasing with no obvious cause, it should be time to look for a replacement.

Benefits of Heat Pump Replacement

While you might not be excited about shopping for a replacement, a new heat pump does have some perks for your home.

  • Increased energy efficiency. If it’s been more than 10 years since you’ve replaced your heat pump, you’re losing out on more energy-efficient models. With SEER ratings now available up to 20 or better, you have more choices for an energy-efficient home than ever before.
  • Better home comfort. With a new heat pump, you’ll have the highest possible home comfort you could have. Any power your last system lost over time will be returned—and maybe then some.
  • More control over your system. Maybe you inherited your system from your home’s previous owners. Maybe you’re just looking for an upgrade. Either way, replacing your system is a good time to take control of your system. You can choose a smart thermostat or accessories like an air purifier. It’s all up to you when you make the change!
