So, you’re purchasing a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to run at its top performance, it’s vital to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Osceola Air, LLC—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 by 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 the 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 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 typically 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 assist with peak comfort and keep your space at your chosen temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like a new thermostat installed during 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.
