Residential Heat Pump Installation
Your heat pump is the device used to keep your house cool when it needs to be and warm when it needs to be. Today, they are preferred over traditional gas heating systems because a heat pump is more efficient for both heating and cooling. If your heat pump stops working, it’s an issue your whole family will notice within the day.
Do I Need a New Heat Pump Installed?
Deciding whether your heat pump needs to be replaced or repaired is difficult if you’re not an expert. Here are some signs to watch out for:
- It isn’t working. Your heat pump needs to heat your home in the winter and keep in cool in the summer. If, even after repairs, it’s not doing this then it’s time to install a new one.
- It’s ten years or older. Even if you take care of your heat pump throughout the years, you will be better off replacing it soon after its tenth birthday.
- It’s Putting a Dent in Your Wallet. If your pump is struggling to heat or cool your home, it will be reflected in how much you’re paying for electricity a month.
Who Should Install the Heat Pump?
The contractor you hire should have years of training and experience in the field. The contractor should understand electrical wiring and care about your family’s safety and comfort just as much as you do. A good contractor will also continue to work with you throughout the years for regular checkups to ensure your heat pump works to your satisfaction.
