What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed 09/29/2017So, you’re buying 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—conduct 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 space by your outdoor compressor/condenser is cleared so the technicians can easily get where they need to be to replace it. If you didn’t already have a heat pump, clear an area where your home’s 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. Take a look to confirm that your attic is well-insulated. You should also assess 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 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 assist with peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or opted for a new thermostat installed with your heat pump installation, you may also want to purchase touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
