What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

So, you’re purchasing a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to operate at its top performance, it’s crucial to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Summit Air Conditioning Inc—complete your heat pump installation. You can also help by doing a little bit of 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 check that any plants and brushes are trimmed away from the outdoor unit for proper operation and to allow for maintenance.

You can also do some smaller 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 frequently be repaired with weather stripping or caulking.

You should be aware that you may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your house at your preferred temperatures 24/7. If you need or want a new thermostat installed during your heat pump installation, you may also want to get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
