What to Expect When You Get a Heat Pump Installed 09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to work at its peak performance, it’s imperative to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Cooler Tymes LLC—conduct your heat pump installation. You can also provide support by doing a little bit of preparation before we achieve 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 did not 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 do some simple home maintenance projects to help make sure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Ensure that your attic is well-insulated. You should also assess for air leaks around your doors and windows. If you find any, they can frequently be repaired with weather stripping or caulking. You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 would like a new thermostat installed throughout 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.
