Even the best heat pumps need replacement. Likewise, you may have a new property that needs the best in cooling and heating technology, which is where the heat pump comes in. It gives you all the heating and cooling you need in one, efficient unit. But you can’t just go out and buy any one. As a result, we will share with you our Lodi Heat Pump Buyer’s Guide
1. When Should I Replace My Heat Pump?
Your heat pump can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years depending on a number of factors. A few of which are:
- Make and model of unit.
- Usage of unit.
- Size of property.
- Region and average temperatures.
- Most important: Frequency and quality of maintenance.
You’ll know your heat pump is on its last legs if it is constantly breaking down. You may also notice inconsistent performance or spikes in your power bill.
2. What Kind of Heat Pump Should I Get?
One of the most important factors in choosing a new heat pump is your current power source. There is no point in buying a gas heat pump if your property has an electrical power source or vice versa. Another important factor is the size of the property and the average temperature settings used during the hot and cold seasons. This will help determine how many BTUs your new unit should offer. It can be disastrous to get a unit that is too small or too big. This results in power loss, more frequent breakdowns, and higher electricity bills.
3. Who Makes the Best Heat Pumps?
As above, it all depends on the needs of your property. You may need certain features on your heat pump such as allergy prevention, smart technology, or other. You will want to compare heat pumps manufactured by Amana, Trane, Carrier, Bryant, Payne, Mitsubishi, Goodman, and Lennox. We also highly recommend you choose the most energy efficient model possible. They can pay for the added cost by reducing energy bills, having fewer breakdowns, and they also tend to run quieter. You may visit the Energy Star site to see the models that get the highest energy use rating.
