How Long Do Heat Pumps Last?
A properly installed heat pump can be expected to last anywhere from 10 to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Depending on the amount of usage and the environment, heat pumps can last upwards of 20 years. The most important factor that goes into determining the longevity of a heat pump unit is the amount of maintenance it receives during its lifetime. A heat pump should receive annual maintenance work.
Why Heat Pump Maintenance Is Important
Heat pumps aren’t meant to be installed and forgotten; there are important routine steps that you must take to make sure the device remains in ideal working order. Regular inspection and maintenance will often help you avoid unnecessary spending.
How to maintain your heat pump:
- Examine your air filter monthly. Clean or replace it as needed.
- Perform seasonal heat pump cleaning. Clear the heat pump of snow, ice, dirt, and other debris. For heavy-duty cleaning, turn off the pump and hose it down. Consider using a degreaser.
- Keep shrubs around heat pump pruned. We recommend a space of at least 18 inches between your pump and any surrounding shrubbery.
In addition to steps you can take yourself, proper heat pump maintenance also includes working with a trained technician.
Our Florence heat pump professionals at A-1 Comfort Systems Inc can:
- Safely drain and flush your indoor condensate pan and drain during spring, before you begin using it as temperature increases.
- Measure the device to ensure proper airflow and the correct refrigerant charge.
- Check for refrigerant leaks and make any necessary repairs.
Getting routine checks and performing annual maintenance are great ways to extend the life of your heat pump and save money on repairs.
When to Call for Repairs
Though there are things you can handle yourself, some problems call for prompt professional help.
Contact a technician for heat pump services in Florence:
- If you suspect there’s a leak. A trained specialist can detect a duct or refrigerant leak and then quickly seal it.
- To tighten and adjust connections. Wear and tear are inevitable. A professional can assure heat pump electrical equipment and connections are correctly attached.
- Check motor and electrical terminals. Professionals are better equipped to doublecheck the more technical aspects of the device and make on-site repairs to restore them to working order.

On 9/17 my wife and I heard a noise, the noise was loud and sudden but very short in duration. Unfortunately we were unable to track down the exact point of noise. Several hours later we again heard the noise. We both felt it came from the AC unit. Call”- Happy Customer
