- Not enough heating or cooling – If your heat pump is underperforming it could be caused by a couple of different issues. It might just be a clogged air filter but it could be a broken compressor, fan motor or an iced–up evaporator coil.
- Strange noises – If your heat pump starts making an unusual noise it probably isn’t a good sign. If you hear a squealing noise, it likely is the fan belt that needs replacing. Hissing can often signify that you have a refrigerant leak somewhere while gurgling could mean that you have low refrigerant.
- Humidity problems – Your heat pump will naturally provide you with dehumidification during the summer by removing moisture through condensation. If you notice that your home is humid and muggy it likely means that you have an issue with your heat pump.

Heat Pump Installation Services
Having your new system installed by a qualified heat pump installation professional is a great way to get the outstanding performance from your new equipment. Finding the right–sized heat pump is one of the most important steps in the process and it happens long before your new system arrives at your house. When you work with the heat pump professionals, we will perform the necessary calculations and measurements to determine exactly what size system would be right for your home.
Another important consideration is the efficiency rating of your new heat pump. Heat pumps are given two different efficiency ratings: one for cooling and one for heating. For cooling, heat pumps receive a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) that describes how much cooling the system produces divided by the energy used. In order to receive an Energy Star rating a heat pump must achieve at least a 14.5 SEER rating. For heating, heat pumps get a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) which measures how much heating is produced divided by the amount of electricity consumed. A HSPF of 8 is about average for many brands of heat pumps though on high–efficiency systems it can be up to 9.

While heat pumps are generally very resilient and tend to last for many years, they will eventually break down. But knowing when it’s time for replacement instead of repair can be difficult. Here are a few things to keep an eye out for which might indicate that it’s time to get a replacement for your heat pump.
- Humidity problems – If you notice that your home is humid or muggy it could mean that your heat pump needs replacement.
- Age – If your heat pump is getting older, you could increase the efficiency and comfort of your home by replacing your system with a new system.
- Frequent repair – When you have to call for frequent repairs for your heat pump it might make more financial sense to just replace the entire system instead of continuing to repair it.
- Inefficient operation – If your heat pump suddenly starts using more energy to heat or cool your home, it might be time to replace it.
