Most heat pumps last between 10 to 15 years. However, it could be sooner if your system isn’t regularly maintained. When the unit nears that age range, or when major components such as your compressor, accumulator, coil, or reversing valve fail, it is usually a more cost-effective choice to replace your heat pump rather than repair the system.
Many people put covers over their outdoor unit to protect it from snow, ice, branches, etc. However, doing this can decrease performance and may damage the system, which may mean increased repair bills.
The best way to protect your heat pump is to stay on top of regular maintenance.
Unlike vehicles, you will not see a warning light on most heat pump systems. Instead, you have to pay attention to the signs the unit is giving off. Listen for excessive noise, as this is a telltale sign that the system isn’t functioning properly. Also, pay attention to system short-cycling, which is when the unit is turning on, operating for a short period of time, and then shutting off.
Less obvious signs include increased utility bills and reduced heating/cooling capacity. Both can indicate the system needs professional service.
Blowers can falter when the thermostat stops working or when the limit switch malfunctions. These are the most common reasons, and it may require repairing or replacing the thermostat or replacing the limit switch to resolve the issue.
Heat pumps are known to freeze up in cold weather, and it is usually not a reason to panic. They freeze up as ice builds on the outdoor unit. The defrost mode should kick on to clear the ice when this happens.
If it doesn’t, the unit may be low on refrigerant, the outdoor coil is dirty, or the defrost control is malfunctioning, all of which require professional repair.
