Despite having to run all year round, heat pumps have pretty long lifespans—often 10 to 15 years, at least. However, as they start passing the decade mark, you may start experiencing an increase in issues, including diminished performance, higher energy bills, and more frequent breakdowns. While repairs can extend the life of your heat pump for some time, it’s not a permanent solution and replacement may be necessary. At Arctic Air Conditioning, we have been helping people in central New Jersey with all their heat pump services since 1977, and we have the skills and resources to help you with your replacement.

Signs You Need Heat Pump Replacement
So how will you know when it’s time to give up on repairs and finally opt for a replacement? Although nothing can replace the professional opinion of an HVAC expert, you can follow these general guidelines from our trained and experienced technicians:
Your Heat Pump Is More than 10 Years Old
While we’re not saying you should ditch your old heat pump the day it turns 10 years old, there can be a good argument made for replacing a heat pump that gets to be over 10 to 15 years old. Heat pump technology gets more and more efficient every day, which means newer heat pumps can save you a lot of money annually on heating and cooling costs!
Heat pumps are built to be durable—they need to be if they want to run all year! If your heat pump breaks down more than two or three times a year, this is usually a sign of a bigger problem that can only be solved by heat pump replacement—this is particularly true if your heat pump repair costs are increasing significantly every time. Heat pump replacement will eliminate the hassle of frequent repairs and will save you tons of money on repair costs!
Your Energy Bills Are on the Rise
If your heat pump is losing efficiency (which is determined by increased energy costs and poor performance), you can assume that it’s reaching the end of its life. Sometimes a heat pump repair will fix the problem, but eventually, it won’t be enough. An expert HVAC tech from Arctic Air Conditioning will be able to inspect your heat pump and determine when it’s time for a replacement.
The Temperatures in Your Home Are Inconsistent from Room to Room
As your heat pump begins to age, it will struggle to maintain a constant temperature throughout the rooms in your home. Replacing your system with a new, highly efficient system will dramatically increase your home’s comfort.
Your Home Has Humidity Problems
Poor humidity control could be the result of poor heat pump operation, inadequate equipment, or leaky ductwork, all of which can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too sticky and humid in the summer. Your Arctic Air Conditioning technician will diagnose the source of your problem and recommend either heat pump replacement or another technique to make your home comfortable all year round.
What Are the Best Heat Pump Brands?
When considering an investment as potentially impactful as installing a replacement heat pump, it’s only natural to want to be certain that your investment is a sound one. When chosen properly, a heat pump should last for 15+ years, and ideally, it should only have to be replaced when it is too old or when a major component such as a compressor fails.
We would suggest that when you’re looking for a replacement heat pump you follow the same criteria we do: examine a cost comparison that includes initial cost and total system longevity, overall performance, and positive ratings by real consumers.
