When you live in Peachtree City, Georgia, you need a reliable cooling system that won’t break down on the hottest day of summer or bite the dust without warning. Not sure whether your heat pump will last through the summer? From decreased efficiency to strange sounds, check out three signs you need a new heat pump.

Frequent Repairs

If you have the Scott Walker Heating & Air team on speed dial and you call our technicians for repairs frequently, your heat pump could be nearing the end of its lifespan. While occasional repairs and annual maintenance are essential for heat pumps, a system that needs emergency repairs on a monthly basis requires replacement.

Decreased Efficiency

All heat pumps lose efficiency as they age. While routine maintenance can keep your heat pump running for 15 years or longer, every system will experience efficiency issues eventually. If your heat pump doesn’t cool as effectively as it used to or if it no longer cools your home evenly, you could have an expensive efficiency problem on your hands.

To increase efficiency significantly and save money on cooling costs, replace your old system with a new heat pump like the Trane XV20i variable-speed heat pump. With a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating up to 20 and the ability to adjust cooling power for optimal energy savings, this heat pump can resolve your efficiency woes.

Strange Sounds

Most heat pumps make minimal noises, no matter how hard they’re working to keep you cool. If your heat pump begins making banging, grinding, or screeching sounds regularly, our technicians can determine whether your system needs a new fan, a complete cleaning, or a compressor replacement. If we recommend replacing the heat pump altogether due to its advanced age or numerous repair needs, we’ll typically suggest investing in a system equipped with a sound insulator for quiet operation.
