Heat pumps are fast becoming a more popular way to heat households in the winter and also keep them cool in the summer.

Heat pump replacement does not have to be a stressful experience when you have the experts at Sharp Plumbing & Heating in your corner.

Heat Pump Cost

We know that the cost to replace your heat pump can put a strain on your finances. That’s why we strive to be as transparent as possible about how much it will cost and why. There are two major factors that affect heat pump cost: capacity and efficiency. 

Heat Pump Capacity

In order to heat and cool your entire home, your heat pump must have enough power. A bigger house means that your heat pump will need more capacity. As the power increases, so does the cost of your heat pump replacement. 

Determining the right heat pump capacity for your home is not just a matter of taking an educated guess. The experts at Sharp Plumbing & Heating perform a specific load calculation to figure out how much power you’ll need.

Our calculation factors include:

  • The square footage of your home
  • Your home’s insulation
  • The height of your ceilings
  • The number and size of your windows and doors
  • The directions your windows face

This calculation is part of our routine heat pump service when you’re in need of a new unit. It’s a critical step that should be approached with care. 

If your heat pump has too much capacity, you’ll be wasting power and spending more money than you need. If your pump has too little capacity, it will be working constantly to heat or cool your home. 

In either case, you’ll experience problems down the road and may have to replace your new heat pump sooner than you anticipated. The technicians at Sharp Plumbing & Heating have performed countless load calculations, and you can trust we’ll get it right. 

Heat Pump Efficiency Ratings

The other factor that impacts heat pump replacement cost is the energy efficiency of the heat pump. As with most HVAC equipment, more energy efficiency usually costs more upfront. 

The sticker price of high-efficiency systems can scare off some homeowners. However, it’s important to remember that energy efficient units can save you money in the long run. 

If you’re in the market for a new heat pump, be on the lookout for one of two heat pump efficiency scores:

  • Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)
  • Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF)

The SEER rating is for heat pump cooling, and the scale is between 14 and 20 SEER. When heating, the heat pump’s efficiency is measured with the HSPF rating, between a score of 7.7 and 10 HSPF. Both of these ratings are calculated based on the amount of energy the heat pump is using to do its job. 

As a general rule of thumb, higher SEER and HSPF ratings indicate more efficient heat pumps. 

Determining the quality of a particular pump can be confusing, but the specialists at Sharp Plumbing & Heating are happy to help. We work with the leading high-efficiency manufacturers and can help you make an informed decision for your new heat pump.

Advantages of a New Heat Pump

Despite the upfront cost of a new heat pump, a new system can benefit you and your family. A new heat pump is an excellent long-term investment in your home, and it can even add to your home’s resale value. 

In addition to that, a new heat pump means you’ll no longer have to worry about breakdowns or costly repairs.

Other advantages of installing a new heat pump include:

  • More consistent heating and cooling
  • Energy-efficient from day one
  • Noticeable savings on your energy bills
  • Advanced features such as remote control and motion sensing 

These advantages can help alleviate the cost of replacement. Our goal is to help you find a solution that works for you.
