HEAT PUMP REPLACEMENT
Heat pumps are some of the most efficient pieces of machinery you can have in your home. They can significantly reduce the amount of energy you use to heat and cool and your home, which lowers your energy costs each month. However, heat pumps have an average lifespan of around ten years, and while you may not need to replace your heat pump immediately at the ten year mark, you’ll definitely need to do so soon.
After around ten years, the efficiency of your heat pump will drop significantly, and replacing the unit will save you up to 20% on your monthly energy costs. Washington Natural Gas can provide you with a heat pump replacement that will help you keep your home cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and energy efficient year-round.

When Do You Need to Replace Your Heat Pump?
The best indicator of when you should replace your heat pump is the unit’s age. After it’s been in use for 10 years, your Pacific Northwest home’s heat pump will lose some of its effectiveness and have some performance issues. You may not notice a gradual decline in the heat pump’s performance, so after you’ve used it for 10 years, our heating contractors recommend that you have the unit inspected. We’ll help you decide whether repairs can solve any issues we find, or if it’s time to have the unit replaced.
Some other warning signs to look out for include:
- A sudden increase in your heating & cooling costs.
This can mean that your heat pump is becoming less efficient.
- Your equipment needs frequent repairs.
Frequent problems with your heat pump can signal an impending breakdown.
- Some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold.
Improper equipment operation could cause this to occur.
- There are noises coming from your heating unit.
This often means that there are problems with the coil of your heating or cooling equipment.
