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.
