Deciding between a heat pump repair and replacement in New Egypt, NJ may have you stressed, but with the help of a professional technician, it won’t need to be so difficult. For starters, make sure you’ve considered the following three factors to help you decide whether fixing or replacing your heat pump is your best option.
Repair Cost and Age
Perhaps a technician quoted you a price for a motor replacement or some other repair job, and you’re wondering if the high cost is worth it when your heat pump may not last very long. This is a legitimate concern. If your heat pump has lasted, say, 15 years, you may get an extra five years out of it, but there’s no guarantee; in either case, you probably can’t justify a repair job that costs a third of what a new system goes for.
Quality of the Cooling
The heat pump should deliver cool air efficiently; that is, without extremely short or long cycles and without lukewarm air blowing out for the first couple of minutes per cycle. You shouldn’t settle for such poor performance, especially after you’ve sunk your hard-earned money into new components and maybe even annual maintenance. An expert would probably lean more toward replacement by this point.
Your Energy Bill
A sharp increase in your monthly bill could tell you that the system is working harder to deliver the same results as before. And if those results don’t impress you to begin with, then you want a new system that’ll both satisfy you and keep your expenses reasonable.
