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 operate at its optimal performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Mighty Ducts—conduct your heat pump installation. You can also provide support by doing a little preparation before we arrive to install your new heat pump.

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

You can also do some easy home maintenance projects to help be 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 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 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 help you reach peak comfort and keep your home at your chosen temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
