How to Install a Heat Pump in the HVAC System

Homeowners who want to install a heat pump in their zoned HVAC system should start by contacting a qualified HVAC rep.

The heat pump will be used as the primary heating source, with the electric heater and radiant heater serving as backups.

The furnace can also be used to supplement the heat pump if desired. The heat pump is a critical part of the heating system and if not installed correctly can cause a fire or other problems, so it is best to not try to tackle this yourself unless you really know what you are doing. The HVAC rep will help determine the best placement for the heat pump and install it according to manufacturer’s directions. HVAC reps have been trained in this field and know the proper type of heat pump for each different HVAC system. They will also make sure that the other components of the zoned HVAC system are compatible with the heat pump and that the entire system is properly balanced. It is not an easy task making everything work together perfectly but if you get the right pro to help you it can be an easy fix. Once the installation is complete, homeowners can enjoy efficient heating all winter long. If you are a fireplace person then you don’t have to worry about heat pumps or any of this for that matter, the only thing you really need to do is find a source of wood and clean the fireplace on a regular basis. Also, remember to clean the flue of the chimney too. Good luck.
