Whatever your motivation for installing a heating system, it is important to know that there are a lot of crucial steps to take into consideration. This involves removing the old system and installing an indoor one. Connect the refrigerant and condensate lines.

Installing the indoor coil


If you're installing a brand new heat pump or replacing an existing one the indoor coil in a heat pump is a key component of the system. It is essential for best results and the highest quality of comfort. The indoor coil is also part of the duct system, that distributes cooled or heated air throughout the home. The indoor coil is usually located over the furnace.


There may be a require more than install the indoor coil when installing a heatpump. There is a possibility to reconnect or replace the wiring that connects your condenser for your heat pump.

Connecting the refrigerant line


During a heat pump installation, you will need to connect the refrigerant line to the condenser. This will allow the heat pump to move the refrigerant liquid through the indoor and outdoor condensers.


It is important to take into account certain factors when connecting the refrigerant lines for heating pump installation. The first is to ensure that you use the right size for the piping. The size of the refrigerant line is different according to the maker of the appliance.


If you already have a line set, you can reuse it, provided it meets the specifications of the manufacturer. It is recommended to adhere to the manufacturer's maximum vertical distance limit. You can however use a commercial pipe clamping system to hold the pipes rigid. Nail plates that are standard can be used to cross-link framing members.

Connecting the condensate line


Installing a condensate line is an important part of the installation of your heat pump. In winter there is a chance for ice to build up in the line and block it. The line could become clogged with moisture in warmer months. This can lead to the formation of condensation that can result in leaks.


The HVAC system is connected to the exterior of the house by the condensate line. It also removes any excess moisture. It's a straightforward part of plumbing. But, if installed, it can lead to several issues.


In the winter months, you might want to wrap your condensate drain line in heat tape. This will stop the water from freezing. This will also stop water from leaching down the walls.

Eliminating the refrigerant


Whether you have a new heat pump or are trying to remove a heat source it is necessary to remove the refrigerant out of the system. The refrigerant is an essential part of the heat pump. If you don't take care to remove the refrigerant, you may damage the unit.


The refrigerant travels from the indoor evaporator to the condenser coil in the outdoor. The indoor evaporator can be located above or below the furnace. The compressor then turns the refrigerant into high-pressure gas. This gas is then passed through an expansion valve, that cools the refrigerant before is then returned to its liquid state. This process is repeated until the thermostat demands cool air.

Heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF)


HSPF is an assessment of the effectiveness of a heating system's energy usage. This rating is mandatory for new heating systems, and is regulated by the federal government. A heat pump with high HSPF can help you save money on your energy bills.


For instance the system with an HSPF of 10 provides 10 BTUs of heat per kWh. A HSPF of 9 provides 9 BTUs for every kWh.


The HSPF can be calculated by considering the total output of heating and multiplying it with the total energy consumed. Then, subtract the heating techniques used to back up. Back-up heating options include electrical resistance heaters, which give a boost in peak demand. The internal heat gains correction factor is included in the equation.
