However, its success and long lasting performance largely depends on its functioning. Hence, prior to using it, make sure that your new heat pump is properly installed. Discussed further in this article are some important tips that must be considered for the installation of a heat pump.

As the first step, choose an appropriate location for the installation of your heat pump. A split system heat pump consists of two key components, of which one should be installed outside and another inside your home. For the installation of the outdoor unit, it is advisable to choose a location that is about 10 inches from your home’s wall. Alternatively, if you are going to install a ground source heat pump (geothermal heat pump) that utilizes water as its source, ensure that the site you have chosen for its installation is inside your home. Apart from these, choose a good location within your home to install the other unit, the air handler.  It is typically installed in an attic, crawl space, or closet.

After choosing an appropriate location to place both the units, it is important to make sure that you are going to install heat pump in accordance to environmental compliance. The next step is to clearly read and understand the owner’s manual. This, in turn, will help you to install as well as connect the indoor and outdoor unit.

For best results, it is recommended to seek assistance of a professional HVAC contractor for the most efficient installation of your heat pump, thereby ensuring its proper functioning.
