What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed

So, you’re buying 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 Cool Air Solutions—complete your heat pump installation. You can also provide support 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 did not have a heat pump, clear an area where the new heat pump will be installed outside. It’s also important to check that any plants and brushes are 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 ensure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Ensure that your attic is well-insulated. You should also check 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 older heat pump. Plus, now is a great 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 you reach peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want a new thermostat installed with 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.

If you have any other questions about what you will anticipate as a result of your new heat pump installation, or if you want to know how long your installation will last, give Cool Air Solutions a call at 951-299-9853. We’re happy to answer your questions and look forward to working with you! And don’t forget to give us a call when it’s time for your new heat pump’s first preventive maintenance.
