So, you’re getting a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to work at its peak performance, it’s vital to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc—complete 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 region around 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 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 be sure you’ll get the most energy efficiency from your new heat pump. Check to make sure that your attic is well-insulated. You should also look 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 house 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
