No one wants to accept the fact that it’s time for a new heat pump. While you may delay it as long as possible, you’ll eventually have to install a new system. Fortunately, your current heat pump will probably give you plenty of warning signs that it’s time for a new heat pump for your Tucson, AZ, home.
1. Strange Noises
You’re probably already aware of all the normal sounds that your home makes. The creaks and pops of your home are a part of your daily life, but new sounds coming from your heat pump can be a sign of trouble. Your heat pump usually makes noises when it turns on and off, but it should run in silence outside of those moments.
2. Constantly Running
Heat pumps shouldn’t run constantly. While a constantly running system is sometimes a sign of something as small as a refrigerant leak, it can also mean that something is wrong with the key components of your heat pump. You’ll likely need to replace a system that never turns off.
3. Inadequate Heating and Cooling
When your system can no longer keep up with your demands, it’s probably time to consider a new one. A properly working system will heat or cool your home to the temperature you set on the thermostat and then turn it off. If your system is failing to get to the desired temperature, it could be a sign that you should replace your system.
