So, you’re getting a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to run at its top performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Cool Air Solutions—perform your heat pump installation. You can also help by doing some preparation before we come to install your new heat pump.
First, be sure the region surrounding 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 keep plants and bushes trimmed away from the outdoor unit for proper operation and to allow for maintenance.
You can also perform some smaller home maintenance projects to help make 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 look 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 could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older 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 home at your preferred 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
