Advantages of owning a heat pump

York Heat Pump Heat and cooling systemThe most obvious advantage of having a heat pump installation in your home is the versatility provided to your household since it is capable of double duty for both heating and cooling. The newest heat pumps have some of the highest energy efficiency available in the entire HVAC industry, and that can result in significant savings on your utility bills, as well as a noticeable improvement in the indoor air quality of your household.

Another advantage of having a heat pump which provides both heating and cooling is that this single appliance takes up less space than the separate combination of the furnace and air conditioner would. Heat pumps are also easy to install and easy to maintain, so if you’re not the do-it-yourselfer type, there are some very affordable maintenance and service options available through A & H Heating & Air Conditioning LLC.

Repair or replace?

If you are not sure if you should repair or replace your existing heat pump, here are some signs to look for that can help with your decision-making. First of all, almost any major heating or cooling appliance older than ten years is probably eligible for replacement, especially because the newer models are so much more efficient.

Repairs may restore heat pump effectiveness for a time, but when you get to the point where repairs are necessary more and more frequently, that should swing your thinking toward replacement rather than ongoing repairs.

Repairs can be costly all by themselves, and when frequent repairs are necessary, costs can mount up quickly, and at that point, a brand-new heat pump would probably be more cost-effective than continuous repairs. Another telltale sign of fading efficiency in your heat pump is that your utility bills show a constant increase over a period of several months, and it has nothing to do with utility company rate increases.
