What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

Installation

So, you’re buying a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to run at its top performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Breathe Healthier Air Inc—perform your heat pump installation. You can also assist by doing some preparation before we achieve to install your new heat pump.

First, be sure the region surrounding your outdoor compressor/condenser is cleared so the technicians can easily get where they need to be to replace it. If you don’t already have a heat pump, clear an area where the new heat pump will be installed outside. It’s also important to make sure bushes and plants are trimmed back from the outdoor unit for proper operation and to allow for maintenance.

You can also perform some simple home maintenance projects to help ensure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Ensure that your attic is well-insulated. You should also assess for air leaks around your doors and windows. If you find any, they can usually be repaired with weather stripping or caulking.

You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous heat pump. Plus, now may be the perfect time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new heat pump. A smart thermostat can help you reach peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or opted for a new thermostat installed during your heat pump installation, you may also want to make sure you have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
