How Long Does a Ductless Heat Pump Last?
As a trusted heat pump and furnace repair company serving North Haven and surrounding areas, we’re often asked the question, “How long will my ductless heat pump last?” We’re sure that this is a question a lot of homeowners want to know the answer to. For that reason, we’ve created this post to briefly explain some things about the longevity of this heating system.
Ultimately, ductless heat pumps can last for between 5 and 20 years — depending on many factors.
Why do some machines last longer than others?
It’s down to the quality of the materials used to manufacture the heat pump. Quality craftsmanship and components go a long way in ensuring the machine that works with high levels of heat can stand the test of time.
Brands such as Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, and Daikin are all reputable manufacturers to consider when looking for a new ductless heat pump.
How do you know a machine is built to last?
It’s simple, check the length of the company warranty on any model that you want to buy. If the guarantee extends to 12 years or more, it’s a safe assumption that the machine will work for at least this length of time without worry.
Can price indicate the lifespan and durability of a ductless heat pump?
Many high-quality brands are very efficient. If you’ve done your homework and researched several different heat pumps, you may have seen the correlation between price and quality. For this reason, it’s a safe assumption that cost is a valid indicator of longevity when it comes to these products.
That said, many people still choose to buy cheap, less reliable products.
Why You Should Avoid Lower End Unit Purchases
Let’s imagine that you pay a heating company $2,000 for them to install a heat pump one weekend, and this heat pump has a 4-7 year lifespan.
Now, let’s imagine that one of our HVAC professionals came out and fitted a brand new, state-of-the-art Fujitsu heat pump for you with a 12-year warranty.
With the number of repairs and maintenance you may have to pay for the first machine; you’ll save money installing the second option. With premium units being more efficient, you’ll also save cash on energy bills during the fall and winter.
Why Your Home’s Boiler Needs Regular Maintenance
Boiler maintenance is essential for ensuring that your boiler is in a safe, reliable, and efficient condition. As a leading provider of oil boiler maintenance in New Haven County, we’ve created this post to educate our customers on the importance of regular boiler tune-ups. A faulty or incorrectly fitted boiler can be a severe danger to you and your family. Therefore, it’s essential to work with a reputable, experienced professional when scheduling boiler maintenance.
Extend the Life of Your Boiler
The more frequently you have your boiler maintained, the fewer repairs you will need, and the less often you will have to replace your boiler. By investing in annual maintenance, any problems that your boiler has developed can be fixed before they develop into serious issues that warrant a new boiler. Additionally, if you catch an issue early enough, repairs will take half of the time. This will save you from taking time off work, and ultimately saving your cash.
Increase Energy Efficiency
With regular boiler maintenance, any faults or damage identified can be quickly fixed. This helps to ensure that your boiler works to optimum efficiency for most of the year. A boiler that works perfectly will also help you to save money on your heating bills!
Avoid Boiler Breakdowns in the Winter
Due to inactivity across the spring and summer, boiler breakdowns are more likely during the winter months. If your boiler breaks down during winter, this can cause chaos, as the weather falls to low temperatures and it starts to frost outside. So, maintenance is essential to ensure that you have adequate heating and a functioning boiler throughout the colder months.
Protect the Health of You and Your Family
The primary benefit of regular boiler maintenance is the safety aspect. Although gas leaks are very unlikely, an issue caused by defective boilers is carbon monoxide production. This deadly gas has no scent and no color, and it can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and death in some cases.
Keeping a well-maintained boiler will reduce the chances of a gas leak tenfold. For more information or to schedule a gas boiler tune-up in West Haven, CT, contact us now!
