Jarboe’s Offers Expert Service for Heat Pump Installation and Replacement
Replacing a heat pump is a big decision that will affect your physical and financial comfort for years to come. Before you choose a new heat pump system, you will need to understand heat pump prices, the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER), the different types of heat pumps, and the average cost of your future utility bills. Heat pump prices vary widely based on several factors, including heat pump capacity, the source of a unit’s energy, and the mechanical components of each heat pump.
Jarboe’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is here to help Louisville homeowners understand all that a new heat pump entails, as well as provide expert service for the required installation.
- Jarboe’s is a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, meaning all technicians have been trained directly from product manufacturers. This provides our technicians with advanced knowledge of installing, repairing, and replacing heating and cooling systems.

Regional pricing differences may affect the final cost of a heat pump replacement, installation, or repairs. For example, costs vary when installing a geothermal heat pump depending on terrain and your property whereas an air source heat pump is more affordable to replace. Our Comfort Consultants are able to give you accurate estimates for replacing whichever type of heat pump system you like!
Timing is Everything
If you are thinking about replacing your heat pump, timing is everything. Heat pumps provide homeowners with both an air conditioner and furnace, so removing a heat pump eliminates the complete system. Going without a heat pump should be considered as you look into the replacement cost. For example, if you want to replace your old heat pump with a geothermal heat pump or an air source heat pump, you should do so at a time when your home will be able to go a few days without either air conditioning or heating system. For instance, replacing your heat pump during a more temperate season like fall or spring would be more convenient for your family than replacing your entire system during summer or winter, when temperatures can swing from comfortable to extreme in a matter of hours.
Unfortunately, sometimes heat pumps must be replaced under less than ideal circumstances. If your heat pump is struggling, you should know that the cost of heat pump repairs along with labor costs can essentially total the system, eliminating the cost efficiency for repairs. The heat pump compressor, for example, is the heart of your heating and cooling system. Should your heat pump compressor suffer catastrophic failure in the outdoor unit, the entire unit will probably need to be replaced. An air handler is another essential piece of equipment that can total a system. An air handler directs airflow to provide either hot air in heating mode or cold air during the air conditioning setting. If your air handler goes out on an already old or inefficient unit, it will probably make more sense just to repair the entire heat pump.
Jarboe’s offers 24-hour service to provide emergency heat pump replacements, as well as backup heating to keep your family warm in the meantime. If you were not planning on replacing your heat pump and do not have savings, we even have payment plans to help finance installation costs.
While some heat pumps may last longer, 12 years is the average amount of time most homeowners can expect the device to run. If your heat pump is over ten years old, you should start thinking about replacing your current system.
Depending on your heat pump’s capacity and energy efficiency rating, there may be newer, more efficient models available. The Louisville climate zone and equipment’s seasonal energy efficiency ratio can also help you determine if a new system’s energy costs will be better for your home and carbon footprint than your current system. Instead of waiting for your heat pump to experience an emergency, you may want to replace it preemptively.
The heat pump cost can vary based on who you turn to for help. Jarboe’s offers fair and competitive heat pump prices, as well as an appropriate heat pump installation cost. You can trust Jarboe’s to provide you with the best cost around.
Heating Replacement Options
If you are looking for honest, impartial, and professional opinions on what would be the best heating and cooling system for your home, the team at Jarboe’s has answers.
If your heat pump is not meeting your home’s heating and cooling requirements, it may need to be upgraded or replaced. Before switching to a different model, you should ensure that you have a correctly sized heat pump. An incorrectly sized heat pump could cause a long list of issues, including inefficient heating and cooling, high energy costs, or a system that just doesn’t seem to be controlling your indoor climate successfully.
If it is just time to replace your heat pump due to air handler issues, energy bills, or operating costs, you should look at your existing ductwork. If your duct setup is in good condition, you may be able to change your current heat pump system into an air conditioner or a higher ton heat pump with a larger cooling capacity. The final cost of a conversion will depend on the ducts installed and the cost ranges of specific HVAC equipment. The right heat pump or AC unit will save you money in the long run.
There are several different types of new heat pump equipment to choose from, including:
- Air source heat pumps
- Geothermal heat pumps
- Solar power heat pumps
Indicators that a Heat Pump Replacement is In Your Future
With proactive and consistent maintenance, most heat pump heating and cooling systems will last for about 12 years. It can be challenging to stay on top of your home’s maintenance and repair schedule, but joining Jarboe’s True Comfort Membership plan makes it easy. Don’t worry about when to schedule your maintenance visits; let us do that for you.
There are a few variables that will determine precisely how long the heat pump in your home will last, even with all of your proactive efforts. No piece of equipment lasts forever, and these indicators can help you know if a replacement will be necessary soon:
- Abnormal sounds coming from your heat pump
- Air conditioning cycles producing warm air
- Heat pumps older than 12 years old
- Heat pumps that produce cold air during heating cycles
- Increased energy costs
- Low heat pump capacity
- More frequent heat pump repairs
- Short cycling within your heat pump
Any of the issues above should be investigated by a licensed professional. They will then help you to determine if a new heat pump cost will be more efficient than the cost of repairs. You can trust Jarboe’s to give you a realistic and honest replacement cost, regardless of which type of heat pump you decide to go with.
Improve Your Home’s HVAC System with an Upgrade
Heat pumps can affect your home in more ways than you might realize. Each different type of heat pump can offer your family unique benefits.
