What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

Installation

So, you’re purchasing a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to run at its peak performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Osceola Air, LLC—perform your heat pump installation. You can also assist by doing some preparation before we come 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 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 do some simple home maintenance projects to help be 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 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 might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous heat pump. Plus, now would be an ideal 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 space at your chosen temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
