Similar to central air systems, air source heat pumps have indoor and outdoor units. Our HVAC experts will walk you through where to place each unit, what you need to connect the unit, and how to connect the heat pump to your existing heating and cooling system in your home. It is usually recommended to install the outdoor unit higher than the snow depth.
Unlike air-source heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps do not have a visible unit outside the home. Instead, ground loops are buried underground, extracting heat from the ground in winter and storing heat emitted by the house in summer. Depending on the size of the land and the topography and landscape, it may be necessary to install vertical loops, and in other cases, horizontal loops can be installed. A certified geothermal installer will conduct a site assessment and advise you on your options.
During the installation process, the heat pump must be connected to the home electrical system to supply power and to the air duct system to distribute hot or cold air. Once installed, an HVAC professional tests and commissions the heat pump to ensure it is working properly.
Next, it should also be explained what maintenance will be required in the future so that the heat pump continues to function optimally and efficiently. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about heat pumps and their installation process and benefits, contact Edwin Stipe, HVAC expert today. We are happy to help!
