What is a heat pump? This question is one the geothermal experts from Symbiont Service Corp in Englewood, Florida answer all the time. Another question they answer is, “should you upgrade the heat pump?”
First, to explain what a heat pump is; it’s an effective and energy efficient means of heating and/or colling a home or a commerical business in Florida. As with all HVAC systems, a heat pump will eventually need to be replaced. A heat pump will typically last for close to two decades. The longevity of your heat pump will depend on how well you maintain it over its lifespan.
If your heat pump is reaching the twenty-year mark, you may be considering a heat pump upgrade or replacement.
