Installing a Central Heat Pump System: An AirGreen Guide

Step-by-step guide to how a central heat pump system is typically installed

When it comes to installing a central heat pump system, it's a complex process that's best left to professionals like us at AirGreen in Montreal. However, it's always good to understand what the process involves, so you know what to expect. Here's a step-by-step guide to how a central heat pump system is typically installed.

  1. Assessment and Planning: The first step is to assess your home's HVAC needs. This involves determining the right size of the heat pump system based on factors like the size of your home, its insulation levels, the local climate, and your specific heating and cooling requirements.
  2. Choosing the Right Heat Pump: Once your home's heating and cooling needs are determined, the next step is to choose the right heat pump system. There are different types of heat pumps, including air-source, ground-source, and water-source pumps, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
  3. Preparation of the Installation Site: Before the new system can be installed, the installation site needs to be prepared. This may involve clearing the area where the outdoor unit will be placed and ensuring that there's adequate space for the indoor air handler.
  4. Installation of the Indoor Unit: The indoor unit, also known as the air handler, is typically installed in a central location inside the house. The air handler is responsible for distributing the conditioned air throughout the home.
  5. Installation of the Outdoor Unit: The outdoor unit, also known as the heat pump, is installed outside the home. It's connected to the indoor unit through a set of refrigerant lines.
  6. Ductwork Installation: If your home doesn't already have ductwork, it will need to be installed. The ductwork is responsible for carrying the conditioned air from the air handler to the various rooms in your home.
  7. System Testing: Once everything is installed, the system is tested to ensure that it's working correctly. This includes checking the refrigerant levels, testing the thermostat, and making sure that the system is heating and cooling effectively.

While this guide gives you an overview of what the installation process involves, it's important to note that installing a central heat pump system is a job for professionals. At AirGreen, our experienced HVAC technicians have the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure that your heat pump system is installed correctly and efficiently.
