    What factors affect the cost of a heat pump repair?

    • Replacement parts: Heat pumps stay active all year long. That puts a lot of strain on individual parts. Eventually, a part will need to be replaced, and those parts have costs ranging from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars. Golden Rule will always be honest about what caused your heat pump issue. And we’ll always give you repair options because it’s the right thing to do.
    • Warranty status: Heat pump warranties come in two varieties. The first is the labor warranty issued by the contractor who installed the system (or repaired it last). The second is a parts warranty issued by the manufacturer of the heat pump. A Golden Rule technician will always check the status of any warranties to make sure you get the most affordable repair possible.
    • Contractor experience: When hiring a company or individual contractor to repair your heat pump, it’s best to think in terms of the value provided rather than cost alone. Golden Rule keeps our prices fair and adds additional protections that smaller contractors just can’t provide. While their pricing may be slightly lower, Golden Rule‘s value is through the roof.

    Heat Pump Repair FAQ

    If anything can go wrong with a heat pump, we’ve seen it. However, some issues come up more frequently than others. For example, you may want to call for a heat pump repair if you notice:

    • Uneven heating and cooling: Your heating and cooling should be evenly distributed throughout the house. Uneven performance indicates a problem that needs to be taken care of.
    • Your heat pump fails to turn on: If you find that your heat pump fails to turn on when you adjust the thermostat, then it could be an electrical issue.
    • Frozen coils: If you notice that your indoor coils have frozen, then it’s typically a sign that you need repair. This may be a relatively quick fix, due to a clogged air filter, but it could also be a sign that you have low refrigerant.

    It can be difficult to figure out whether you need heat pump replacement. Short of a major and permanent breakdown, there are plenty of other reasons why you might want to consider removing your old system and putting in a new one. If your existing heat pump requires frequent repairs or has become highly inefficient, it may make more sense to replace it than to continue patching up an old unit. The team at Golden Rule Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help you determine whether repair or replacement is the better option for your system.
