Factors That Affect the Overall Heat Pump Repair Cost

Heat pumps remain one of the most energy efficient systems to heat or cool an entire home or commercial property. They continuously operate by transferring the heat energy indoors during the winter time and removing heat from the interior of your home, pushing it outside, during the summer. While they remain quite efficient, these units are subject to breaking down or malfunctioning at one point or another. To estimate the cost of repairs, there are a few factors that homeowners must take into account.

Types of Heat Pumps

The various types of heat pumps will all have a different price point associated with them. For example, a geothermal heat pump is dependable and reduces energy use when compared with an air source heat pump, but may be a bit more costly to repair. While an air source heat pump is readily available, as are the replacement parts associated with repairs for this particular system. The air source heat pump is also known for being easily accessible to make repairs by a technician, while the geothermal unit is more difficult.

Common Heat Pump Issues

Should your heat pump fail to adequately heat or cool the whole home, you should begin the repair process by examining the thermostat. Thermostat-related troubles are generally the main cause for concern. The specific problem, however, will change the cost for repairs.

  • Faulty Wiring – Faulty thermostat wiring is the least expensive repair task, as you won’t need to replace the entire thermostat. This particular repair job generally costs around $150 and up.
  • Defective Programmable Thermostat – A defective programmable thermostat is the most costly repair job. Homeowners can expect to pay upwards of $700 for a replacement or for repair components.
