So, you’re purchasing a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to operate at its top performance, it’s vital to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Custom Air Systems Inc—perform your heat pump installation. You can also assist by doing a little preparation before we come to install your new heat pump.
First, be sure the area 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 keep plants and bushes trimmed away from the outdoor unit for proper operation and to allow for maintenance.
You can also complete some smaller home maintenance projects to help make sure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Ensure that your attic is well-insulated. You should also check 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 could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former heat pump. Plus, now is a great 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 preferred temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like a new thermostat installed with 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.
