Interested in switching to a residential heat pump or replacing your existing one?
A heat pump is a multi-functional unit that works as both a heating and cooling unit. A heat pump draws heat from outdoor air and circulates it through your home’s air ducts. In the summer, it reverses the process and removes heat from your house and releases it outdoors.
A heat pump can work in conjunction with your gas furnace or with your electric furnace. They are a more efficient way to heat the home, so they will help save money on utilities year round!
You can get an air to air heat pump or an ultra efficient geo-thermal heat pump.
If your heating and cooling system still has a lot of life left, then repairs make the most sense, but if your unit is aging or deteriorating quickly due to poor installation or maintenance, a replacement may be the better choice. Here are the top three reasons you should consider replacing your furnace:
- Cracked Heat Exchanger – A crack in the heat exchanger could leak carbon monoxide into your home. This can be a life threatening emergency that should be addressed as soon as possible. The cost of replacing a heat exchanger outweighs the cost of replacing the furnace so our typical suggestion is to replace the furnace.
- Continual Repairs – One bad part can wear down the other parts, affecting the overall life expectancy of the unit. Depending on the situation, it may be best to replace.
- Age and Efficiency – A well-maintained system with annual has a life expectancy of 10–15 years. Efficiency is measured by how much energy is used to make the system run. The more energy used, the more cost to you, and the environment. Once it starts to lose its efficiency, it may be more cost effective to replace the furnace.
