All climate control systems have expiration dates, no matter how well they're taken care of. If you're using an older heat pump to keep cool this summer, it's possible that it might break down under the strain. It's important that you be able to recognize the signs that your heat pump is nearing the end of its life. You don't want it dying on you in the middle of one of the hottest days of the year, after all. Read on for some of the signs that you need to install a new heat pump.
The older and more worn out a heat pump gets, the more its efficiency will drop. As the heat pump gets less and less effective, it will start to operate for longer in order to compensate. This will make the system more expensive to operate. If your bills seem to be rising for no apparent reason from month to month, it might be that you need a new heat pump.

The occasional need for repair is a fact of life for climate control systems, but most systems only need to be repaired every few years. The older a system gets, though, the more it's going to wear down. The wear and tear will eventually cause parts of the system to start failing, usually in rapid succession. If you need to have your heat pump repaired every couple of months, you really should talk to a professional about installing a new system. It will be cheaper to do that than to replace your old system one piece at a time.
