What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a versatile HVAC system that can both heat and cool your home from the same unit. Instead of generating heat, it takes cold air from the outside or ground and warms it before distributing it to the inside of your home. During the hot summer months, it can do the opposite. The results are a highly efficient way to both heat and cool your home.

Why Make the Switch to a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps are a highly efficient way to warm your home. They use less energy than a traditional heating system, like a furnace, and are usually cheaper to operate than your current system. They’re also more environmentally friendly, don’t rely on fossil fuels for power, and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than a system like a furnace.

What to Expect During a Heat Pump Installation

If you want to explore a heat pump for your Illinois home, here’s what to know about the installation process.

1) Assessment

Before the installation process begins, one of On The Mark’s experienced HVAC technicians will visit your home or business. We’ll evaluate your current system, your existing ductwork, and the layout of your home or business to determine the most suitable heat pump size and type for your heating and cooling needs.

2) Choosing the Right Heat Pump for Your Home or Business

After going over everything about your system and collecting your feedback about how your home is warming, we’ll talk through your options. There are various types, including air-source and ground-source (geothermal) heat pumps. We’ll discuss the costs, make a recommendation, and set a time to come out to install your heat pump.

4) Pre-Installation Preparation

Your home will need some prep work before installing a heat pump. It could include clearing the installation area, making space for indoor and outdoor components, and making sure everything is accessible. We’ll talk through what (if anything) should be addressed before we start installing your heat pump.

5) Indoor and Outdoor Unit Installation

The team at On The Mark will get to work on installing your heat pump’s indoor and outdoor units. Your units will be strategically placed to optimize your heat pump’s efficiency and ensure proper airflow. Our experienced HVAC technicians will handle every aspect of the installation process, including:

  • Removing and taking away your old HVAC system
  • Making any modifications to your home’s ductwork or electrical system if needed
  • Connecting the refrigerant lines, electrical connections, and thermostat

Testing and Calibration

Before your experts from On The Mark leave, we’ll make sure your heat pump is thoroughly tested and calibrated to meet your desired temperature settings.
