Early Last winter, I needed to update our heat pump. The heat pump was only 7 years old, but the main control board was shot. The main control board is the space of the heat pump that talks to the HVAC plan and tells it what to do. The main control board tells the heat pump if it should be heating or cooling. If the main control board is broken, the heat pump won’t work. My heat pump only had a three year warranty, so I had no alternative but to update the whole thing. I made an appointment with a local Heating, Ventilation and A/C servicing business. I hoped they would provide myself and others a little good news about the heat pump, but they told myself and others about the main control board. Since the heat pump was already 7 years old, the Heating, Ventilation and A/C business said it would be better to update. I genuinely did not want to hear that news. I waited for a few extra days to make a decision, although I finally decided to buy a new heat pump. I chose something that was affordable, but energy efficient. They even offered myself and others a decent discount, because the last heat pump came from their business. The installation process was not very long and arduous, and I had to wait until the weekend to have this new heat pump installed. The Heating, Ventilation and A/C business was tied up with other installs and service calls, and they had to order a new heat pump for our house. Now that the problem is gone, I should not have to worry about the heat pump for another 5 years. Hopefully, this 1 will last me a little bit longer than the first heat pump.
