Heat Pump Installation and Replacement in Springfield, Ohio
Eventually, every homeowner experiences a failure in their heating unit. It’s a cold morning and you hike the thermostat up like you usually do, but you get no response. You don’t hear the system firing up or feel the radiators or air vents producing any heat. You hope it’s just a quick fix, like a clogged filter or a tripped circuit breaker. On the other hand, you might be questioning if it’s more cost-effective to just have the unit replaced. We at Springfield Heating & Cooling are here to help you solve these issues — we’d be happy to help!

When to Repair vs. Replace Your Heating System
A Heat Pump can last up to 20 years, however, if you start noticing signs of decline, you may not need to wait that long to replace. Maintenance plays a big part in the longevity of your unit. Energy Star recommends replacing systems that are older than 10 years. That’s because newer systems generally employ higher efficiency features that can greatly increase your energy savings. New heat pumps today use two-stage compressors, variable-speed air handlers, and more efficient coil design to optimize comfort and energy savings. Consider all factors before deciding to replace them.
5 Symptoms of a Heat Pump Needing Replacement
- Age of Unit — It’s normal for a heat pump to last 12-20 years. If your unit is older than this, it’s time for an upgrade.
- Inconsistent Heat Supply — You should be getting an even heat supply throughout your home. If you feel spotty areas, call for a diagnosis.
- High Energy Bills — Older systems will have to work twice as hard, which raises your energy consumption.
- Unusual Noises — Noises are usually traced to the exact components of your HVAC. These may be able to be repaired.
- Constant Repairs — If you find yourself spending money on repairs often, it may save money to replace the unit altogether.

Keywords for Your New HVAC System
SEER: SEER is an acronym for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Much like MPG (miles per gallon) for your car, it’s a standardized rating number used to compare the energy efficiencies of different central air conditioners and heat pump systems. Like miles per gallon, the higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system.
SEER is calculated using the total amount of cooling provided during the cooling season, divided by the total electrical input during the cooling season. (Source)
TONNAGE: A heat pump’s cooling capacity is expressed in BTUh (British Thermal Units per Hour) or tons (often referred to as “tonnage”). Both offer a measurement of a heat pump’s cooling ability over an hour’s time. One ton of cooling capacity is equal to 12,000 BTUh. Residential heat pumps usually range from 1.5 to 5 tons (or, 18,000 – 60,000 BTUh). (Source)
