So, you’re buying a new heat pump. In order for your heat pump to operate at its peak performance, it’s crucial to have a skilled technician—like one of ours at A&M Heating & Cooling LLC—perform your heat pump installation. You can also provide support by doing some preparation before we arrive 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 don’t already 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 do 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 usually be repaired with weather stripping or caulking.
You should be aware that you might 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 opted for a new thermostat installed throughout your heat pump installation, you may also want to get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
