    What factors affect the cost of a heat pump installation?

    • Efficiency of the unit: The more efficient a heat pump is, the better it is at keeping your energy bills down. And unlike ACs and furnaces which provide seasonal savings, an efficient heat pump saves you money all year long. That’s one of the reasons our customers love heat pumps, and we’re happy to help you find one that reduces your bills and stays within budget.
    • Size of the unit: Heat pump size is measured by its tonnage, and the most important factor in sizing a heat pump is home size. Heat pump size and heat pump cost go up together, so a bigger heat pump always costs more than a smaller one. That said, you wouldn’t want a heat pump that’s too big or too small for your home anyway, because it wastes a ton of energy and decreases system lifespan.
    • Home renovations: new heat pumps sometimes require renovations to a home. The most common renovations involve repairing or installing new ductwork, extending a home’s plumbing to the new system, or installing new electrical wiring. The good news is we have service divisions that can help with all of it, so you won’t need to juggle multiple contractors.

    Heat Pump Installation FAQ

    A heat pump works much like an air conditioner. Refrigerant travels through various components that change its pressure and temperature to move thermal energy from one place to another. Your outdoor unit comprises a compressor and condenser, whereas the indoor unit comprises the air handler and evaporator coil.

    What remains unique about the heat pump is the reversing valve that allows it to draw heat from the air outside and bring it in during the winter and remove heat from your home during the summer. This versatility has made it into a popular HVAC system.

    If you’re in the market for a new heat pump, make sure that it’s installed by a pro. Investing in a comprehensive HVAC system is a major expense for many homeowners, one that needs to be performed carefully so that you can get the most out of your system.
