When combining two systems to heat your home, there can be some concern that this may create bigger, more frequent repair problems. The truth is, you’ll deal with the same kind of problems with a hybrid heating system as you would with any other system. Why? Because each system works independently, so the problems that can develop are the same for you as other homeowners with separate systems. Any kind of heating repair for any system in Savannah should always be handled by experts, so if you are experiencing any problem with your heating, contact AAction Air today!
Frequency of repairs for any whole-home system tends to run in accordance with the number of moving parts a system has and its average lifespan. Heat pumps have very few moving parts and an average lifespan of 20-25 years. Furnaces have a number of moving parts, particularly in the blower assembly, and an average lifespan of 15-20 years. However, the gas furnace doesn’t operate as much as a single gas furnace, so this takes some wear and tear off the system. The same can be said of the system’s heat pump: because the heat pump can switch to the back-up furnace in very cold weather, it, too, doesn’t have to work under highly stressful conditions. The bottom line is that while no one can predict how many repairs your heating system will need, a hybrid heating system should have no more, and could have less, than more traditional systems.
Types of Repairs
Here are some of the kinds of repairs you may see with a hybrid heating system:
- Issues with the heat pump – heat pumps can develop refrigerant leaks, motor issues with the compressor and/or issues with the condenser.
- Issues with the furnace blower – the fan, or blower, of a furnace can develop problems with the motor, the fan blades and the fan belt.
- Issues with lighting – if the pilot isn’t lighting, there may be an issue with the electronic ignition, the gas valve or a problem with the nozzle.
