Heat Pump Cost: Installation and Maintenance

Heat pumps have become highly popular among homeowners due to their exclusive benefits. They offer an energy-efficient way to maintain an optimal temperature in your home. Compared to traditional air conditioning units and heaters, heat pumps are more efficient, helping you save thousands of dollars on costlier energy bills.

Buying and installing a new heat pump in Florida can be expensive, but it comes with endless benefits. A report by the U.S. Department of Energy highlights that heat pumps can produce three times more energy than the electrical energy consumed during operation.

You might ask what is the average heat pump installation and maintenance cost. You will find the different types of heat pump systems, and each type has a different cost associated with its maintenance and installation. This write-up will highlight the factors affecting Florida’s heat pump cost.

Heat Pump Installation Cost

To get an exact estimate of heat pump installation cost, you need help from a professional contractor that can inspect your home. But here we will discuss some factors that affect the repair and installation cost of heat pumps:

  1. Size

The heat pump size you choose significantly affects its maintenance and installation cost. Most residential heat pumps have sizes between 1 and 5 tons. You can choose a perfect size, considering the square footage of your home, number of people living in your home, the layout of your home, and the ductwork condition.

Choosing the right-sized heat pump is vital to save on your energy bills. For example, selecting a smaller heat pump system will not satisfy your home’s needs. On the other hand, a more extensive heat pump system can result in higher up-front costs.

  1. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)

SEER is an energy efficiency metric of the heat pump systems that manufacturers disclose to help homeowners select a sustainable HVAC solution. A heat pump system with a higher SEER ratio will be costlier to purchase, install, and maintain. The higher the seasonal energy efficiency ratio, the more energy efficient the heat pump.

  1. Warranty

When you buy a new heat pump system, it comes with two different warranties-labor and parts warranty. If your system carries any of these two warranties, you may expect to pay less for heat pump installation and repairs.

  1. Labor Cost

The labor cost of installing or maintaining a heat pump may vary significantly depending on the type of system you choose. Some heat pumps, like geothermal, require more work to manage, resulting in higher installation costs.

Brandon and his installation team did meticulous work, completing the project on time and exactly as promised. Diamond Air is a family-owned business with a sterling reputation.

This is one of the 3 companies I had out to my house. I’m very happy Diamond Air was one I contacted. They offered exactly what I needed, did not upsell me and were right on target on what would solve my issue. Preston, my Service Tech, was ready to answer my questions, was super knowledgeable, professional and just a charm beaming with honesty, kindness and all I could pray for in a service tech. You will not be disappointed putting your A/C equipment in their hands! Thank you Diamond Air Team! You have my business.

I had an American Standard Platinum HVAC System installed. Brandon, Stewart, and Preston did the install work. They were scheduled to start at 8:00 am. Stewart arrived at 7:45 am and immediately went to work. Brandon and Preston arrived at 8:00 am with the new HVAC System. I tried to offer them drinks and something to eat but they were more concerned with completing the job. The crew was absolutely fantastic. They completed the install work in about 7 hours. They never stopped working until the job was completely finished. They did an outstanding job installing the new system. The company even filed my warranty paper work for me. I had to do nothing but sit back at let them do all the work, from the install, warranty registration, and setting up the county inspection. They even provided financing for 0% interest rate for 60 months. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Daimond Air Design for HVAC System Replacement!!!
