What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

So, you’re getting a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to work at its top performance, it’s crucial to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Abilene Air-Tech Inc—conduct your heat pump installation. You can also provide support by doing some preparation before we achieve 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 did not have a heat pump, clear an area where your home’s 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 check 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your house at your preferred temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
