A common question asked at the start of repairs is: Is it worth it? Sometimes the damage is too severe, to the point where you’re better off replacing the heat pump entirely. But other service companies might take advantage of the situation, claiming you’re better off with a new model even if your existing heat pump is still in good shape.
When choosing between repairing or replacing your heat pump, consider:
- Its age – Heat pumps typically survive between 10 to 20 years. If your heat pump is getting older, problems are more likely to appear. You could even avoid a surprise breakdown by replacing it before it gets too old.
- Cost of repairs – A sure sign you’re better off with new installation is if the cost of repairs adds up to over half the price of a new one.
- Day to-day-performance – Are you hearing strange sounds or struggling with inconsistent temperature control? A heat pump isn’t worth keeping around if it can’t provide adequate heating and cooling as advertised.
