Another common question we get is… do heat pumps last longer than a gas furnace?

Heat pumps are often relied on year-round & don’t typically last quite as long as furnaces and air conditioners. Their average lifespan is about 12 to 15 years. In most cases, heat pumps are worth it, although heat pumps are usually more expensive to install. However,  you tend to end up saving more money throughout the year with lower energy & maintenance costs making heat pumps a good investment. Additionally, heat pumps are much safer with no risks for a gas leak, which can expose you to possible fire and carbon monoxide.

People Also Ask… What Are The Disadvantages Of A Heat Pump?

Air source heat pumps can experience issues such as icing in extremely cold temperatures. This can ultimately damage the system, although it’s rare, and modern heat pumps often include automatic defrosting. Their efficiency might be a little lower at very cold temperatures, and use more electricity during those cold days. As we know, we get the occasional hard freeze, but that is a pretty rare occurrence. The majority of the time, a modern heat pump is a marvel in efficiency and should be considered anytime you’re thinking about replacing a worn out system.
