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 run at its top performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at True Home Heating and Air Conditioning—conduct your heat pump installation. You can also help by doing some 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 don’t already 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 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 usually be repaired with weather stripping or caulking.

You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older 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 you reach peak comfort and keep your space at your chosen temperatures 24/7. If you need or opted for a new thermostat installed throughout 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.

If you have any other inquiries about what you will find as a result of your new heat pump installation, or if you would like to understand how long you can expect your specific installation time to last, give True Home Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 949-258-7259.
