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 vital to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Temp Control of Vero Beach—perform your heat pump installation. You can also assist by doing a little preparation before we arrive to install your new heat pump.

First, be sure the area surrounding 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 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 complete some smaller 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 typically be repaired with weather stripping or caulking.

You should be aware that you may 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 preferred 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
