Heat Pump Installed outside a home

How Much Does it Cost to Install a Heat Pump in Mechanicsville?

As an HVAC company, we answer quite a few questions about heating and cooling in Mechanicsville. One of the most asked questions: How much will it cost to install a new heat pump? It’s not an easy question to answer on the fly, but we’ll work with you to identify the answer.

Here are some factors that can affect your final cost:

  • The size of your house.
  • The size of the heat pump.
  • The energy-efficiency ratings on your machine.
  • Whether the system needs ducts.
  • The amount of labor included.

At M & S Heating & Air LLC, we’re happy to help you choose the right system for your home—while taking energy efficiency, price point and your comfort into the equation.

DIY or Professional Installation?

There’s another question we hear occasionally. Can I install my new heat pump on my own? We understand it can be tempting to take on home projects to save a larger investment. For some projects, it’s a great idea. But let us be straightforward: Heat pump installation is best left to the experts.

Unless you’re highly trained with an exhaustive knowledge of equipment sizing, electrical circuits, home wiring, refrigerant handling and more, your background just can’t match an HVAC expert.

You might end up costing yourself a fair amount more if you start the process without a professional, run into problems and have to bring in an expert to help. If you initiate the process with an expert, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your machine was installed correctly.

Professional installation has another additional advantage: access to the warranty. If you do try the installation as a DIY project and run into a problem, you’re likely left to your own devices. A lot of warranties are void without professional installation.

When your system fails without a warranty, you’ll likely end up paying the difference your DIY installation saved—and more.

What to Expect on Installation Day

Before Installation

Before beginning work on your home, we’ll contact you to let you know when to expect our team. Once we arrive, we’ll review the project with you, so you know what’s ahead for the last of the process. After that, we’ll prepare your house and turn off the electricity to your HVAC system.

When we’re replacing a heat pump, the final step to prepare is clearing out the refrigerant. We’ll take care of it for you while following with EPA standards. We’ll do the same with the rest of the equipment.

During Installation

Once that’s ready, we’ll get down to the actual installation. That means we’ll get your equipment where it needs to be, connect it and wire it so it works with your space. Next, we make sure the system pressure is correct and test the system. Before we leave, we’ll run your new system for little while to make sure everything works the way it’s meant to.

After Installation

Once we wrap up installing your new heat pump, we’ll clean up after ourselves, look at system operation with you and wrap up your paperwork.
