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 peak performance, it’s crucial to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.—perform your heat pump installation. You can also provide support by doing a little bit of preparation before we come to install your new heat pump.

First, be sure the area surrounding your outdoor compressor/condenser is cleared so the technicians can easily get where they need to be to replace it. If you did not have a heat pump, clear an area where your new heat pump will be installed outside. It’s also important to check that any plants and brushes are trimmed away from the outdoor unit for proper operation and to allow for maintenance.

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

You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous heat pump. Plus, now would be an ideal time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new heat pump. A smart thermostat can assist with peak comfort and keep your space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want a new thermostat installed throughout your heat pump installation, you may also want to purchase touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
