Spot The Warning Signs Of A Worn Out Heat Pump
The general rule is if your heat pump is ten years or older, investing in a new heat pump is probably better. Although your old unit may work fine, they’re most of the time less efficient than the new ones. With increasing energy prices each year, you’ll save money by buying a new heat pump.
How To Choose A New Heat Pump
Size – The heating capacity of your heat pump is based on the size of the room you want to heat. If the heat pump is larger in capacity than what’s needed for your room, it will cycle on and off too often that will prevent it from evenly cooling or heating a home. It it’s too small, of course you’ll have to expect higher power bills without properly heating your home.
Energy Efficiency – Each heat pump has energy efficiency ratings. The more stars, the more energy efficient. This will help give you an estimate of its running cost. Although, other efficiency factors come into play, this is still a good starting point.
Cost – Consider the first two factors and strike a balance with the price. We believe in providing customer centred solutions. That means the information we give will always have your best interests at heart. If we don’t think your heat pump needs replacing, we’ll tell you.
