If you think it might be time to replace your heat pump but aren't sure, here are some questions to consider:
- How old is your current heat pump? Heat pumps typically have a lifespan of around 10–15 years. If your heat pump is approaching that age, you should start looking into replacing it.
- Does it need a lot of repairs? Heat pump repair costs can add up quickly. If the cost of the repair multiplied by the heat pump's age is more than the cost of a new unit, it's usually more cost-effective to invest in a new heat pump for your Orlando area home.
- Is it keeping you comfortable? If your home always seems to be hotter or colder than you want it to be, this often means you have the wrong size heat pump for your home, or that it is on its way out. In both cases, you are usually better off replacing your heat pump with a new, efficient one.
- Does it have an expired warranty? If so, the manufacturer will no longer guarantee the performance of your heat pump. If an expensive part die— like the compressor, which usually comes with a longer or even limited lifetime warranty—you'll have to cover the entire cost out of pocket, which may not be worth it compared to buying a new heat pump.
How much will it cost?
Heat pump installation costs will vary. Here are some of the factors involved:
- Size: The larger the heat pump, the more you'll pay for it. However, you don't get to choose which size heat pump you want. A professional will have to perform what's called a "load calculation" to find the right size heat pump for your Orlando area home.
- Brand: You'll typically pay more for "bigger", well-known brands. We recommend choosing a heat pump based on efficiency rather than brand name. Our HVAC experts will be able to help determine the right heat pump for your home.
- Efficiency: You'll pay more for higher-efficiency heat pumps. The higher the SEER and HSPF ratings, the more efficient the unit. However, more efficient units also mean lower monthly energy bills and more comfort.
