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 crucial to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Speedy Air Conditioning—complete 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 around 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 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 complete some easy home maintenance projects to help ensure 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 assess 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 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your home 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 make sure you have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.

If you have more questions about what you will find during your new heat pump installation, or if you want to know how long your installation will last, give Speedy Air Conditioning a call at 239-596-2645.
