What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re buying a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to work at its optimal performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at A2Z Air 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 by 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 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 make sure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Take a look to confirm 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 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 assist with peak comfort and keep your space 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
