Is My Heat Pump in Clancy, MT, Past the Point of Repair?

March 28, 2022

Heat pumps will need the occasional repair, especially with the constant use they see all year in Clancy, MT, but there comes a point when they can no longer continue despite the best care shown to them. Below, you’ll learn how to tell if and when your heat pump is beyond repair and needs to be replaced.

Age and Level of Wear

Consider the age, first of all. Heat pumps can last up to 20 years with the proper maintenance, and if this is something you’ve neglected to have done, professionals can take care of it for you. Sometimes, though, when heat pumps see continual use and are in extreme climates, they may only last a decade.

Relatively “young” heat pumps can benefit from repairs, even the more costly ones like compressor replacement. However, much depends on the level of wear: the mileage, so to speak, rather than the age. A professional could help you determine this.

The Effectiveness of Repairs

After you get your heat pump repaired, does it improve the quality of the air, or do you still experience issues like loud noises, strange odors, rapid cycles and air that isn’t quite as cold as you want it? If the latter, then only a new system will give you the comfort you expect.

Look at Your Monthly Bill

Your monthly bill could tell you a lot about your heat pump’s performance. Sub-par performance combined with extremely high bills could mean that your heat pump is seriously inefficient.
