Frequently asked questions about Heat pumps
What are signs of a malfunctioning heat pump?
Sometimes, it is very easy to know you need heat pump repairs but, sometimes, less so. Here are some signs you might need to replace your heat pump:
- Increase in your utility bills
- Higher energy consumption
- Inconsistent heating capabilities
- Unusual noises or smells
- Frequent breakdowns
- Increasingly expensive repairs
If you encounter any of these, you should contact your local plumber and heat pump technicians to assess the situation and determine if heat pump replacement is the best course of action for your home.
Should I repair or replace my heat pump system?
If you start having to deal with increasingly expensive repairs, it might be better for you to replace your heat pump altogether. Especially if your heat pump is getting old (over 15 years) it might be saving you money, in the long run, to opt for a more energy-efficient heat pump. If you simply notice some functionality issues with your heat pump, contact HARP Home Services and our technicians will assess what is the best course of action and provide same-day heat pump repairs if necessary.
What is the average life of a heat pump?
The average heat pump has a lifespan of between 10 to 15 years, depending on a number of factors, including frequency of use and how well it has been maintained. If your heat pump is approaching or has passed this age, it may be time to consider a replacement. Getting a newer, high-efficiency heat pump can be much more beneficial to your home and even finance itself on energy cost savings only.
How much does it cost to replace a heat pump?
Of course, heat pump replacement costs highly depend on the model of your new heat pump. There are some cheap models around but that might cost you more in terms of energy. On another hand, getting a high-efficiency heat pump will cost you more upfront but will save you energy costs in the long run. When it comes to heat pump installation costs, we know that it can represent a huge investment. That’s why HARP Home Services offers financing options as well as promotional offers to help you save on your new heat pump installation. Contact us for any additional information.
What are the best brands of heat pumps?
There are many good brands of heat pumps. At HARP Home Services, we recommend using Lennox heat pumps. Lennox heat pump systems have been proven to be some of the most reliable, long-lasting, and efficient pumps on the market. When performing heat pump replacement, our technicians are able to install Lennox heat pumps quickly and efficiently.
Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
