Making the Switch: Understanding the Lifespan of Air Source Heat Pumps
We talk to many people who are thinking about switching to a greener home heating system and one of the first questions they ask is “How long does an air source heat pump last?” It is, of course, only natural to want to know how long your new source of heat is going to last as it represents a substantial investment as far as most homeowners are concerned. Today, we are not only going to answer this question for you, we are also going to look at ways in which you can extend the usable service life of your new air source heat pump.
How Long Does an Air Source Heat Pump Last in the United Kingdom?
Under reasonable conditions, the latest air source heat pumps can be expected to last for around 20-25 years when installed by professionals in the UK. Even if a pump is not particularly well maintained and consequently has a somewhat harder life than is usual, it will probably still run well for 10-15 years (with a little luck).
What You Can Do to Maximise the Service Life of Your New Air Source Heat Pump
If you would like to ensure you get the maximum service life from your new pump, we recommend paying close attention to the following:
- Maintenance – Regular servicing by a qualified engineer will help to ensure that your new pump continues to run smoothly for many years to come.
- Cleaning – Cleaning your air source heat pump filters once a month or so is a simple task you can do yourself and will almost certainly help to extend the pump’s service life.
- Visual Inspections – Take a couple of minutes to look over your pump every now and then and you will be able to address any minor issues before they have a chance to cause any real damage.
If you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines with regard to all of the above, you could get a quarter of a century or more of heating from your new pump. For more information on air source heat pumps, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
