Why Fall is a Good Time to Install a New Ductless Heat Pump

October 10, 2019

If you live in the Pacific Northwest you know that areas like Thurston, Pierce, Mason and Lewis counties can see damp and bone-chilling weather changes that appear fast. To avoid having to bundle up in your own home to keep warm, Fall is a good time for residents in the counties near Olympia, Washington to install a new ductless heat pump. 

You want to get the job done before Winter arrives and while the demand for service is still relatively low. Here’s why we think the fall is a good time to install a new ductless heat pump.

Beat the Rush 

Demand for heat pump installation around Olympia, Washington begins to get busy as early as August. It continues to gain momentum right through to December. If you book your installation in early Fall, you’ll still be ahead of the busy season, so you won’t run into issues when the weather turns cold.

A change of seasons can sometimes mean more service-related calls. Finding an available contractor can lead to delays in scheduling installation appointments.

Avoid Winter Breakdowns

You’ll notice changes to your HVAC system year by year. From odd sounds to cold pockets developing in your home, the signs you could be facing a full out HVAC break down are often ignored. However, if you take a proactive approach and arrange to replace your traditional HVAC system with a new ductless system before you encounter a full break down, you won’t have to worry about emergency calls and rush replacements in the dead of winter.  

Best Value

If you start planning your heat pump replacement in the fall, you can arrange to get quotes from more than one company. You can make comparisons and get the best price available and find the provider you want to work with. 

Your heating system is an investment that deserves full consideration with a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the available models, brands and service agreements. You’ll get the best deal and more importantly the most value and dependability for your investment.

An Informed Decision 

Pressure is the enemy of good decisions! When you are faced with spending the winter freezing because your heat pump is failing, it’s easy to be pressured into making the wrong choice for your new system. If you plan a replacement in the fall, you can take the time to shop around and learn more about the ductless heat pumps available.

You can learn more about:

  • An accurate calculation of your home’s heating and cooling requirements
  • High-efficiency systems with variable speed motors
  • Air quality-improving upgrades like air cleaners, energy-recovery ventilators
  • Whole-house dehumidifiers
  • Energy-saving options like programmable smart thermostats

You can discuss all of these important factors with an Olympia, Washington heat pump expert so you can make the best decision for your needs.

Lower Costs 

Most industries see prices rise in peak seasons. If you arrange for installation at a slower time of year you might be more likely to find special discounts or rebates. You will also be better prepared to manage the expense if you plan your installation. You can decide if you need to arrange for financing or can afford to pay in a lump sum.

Reduce Heating Costs

Going through another fall and winter with an underperforming heat pump will be very costly. Until you have a new ductless heat pump it’s hard to imagine just how much money you can save with a high-functioning system. An efficient system allows you to avoid the high cost of wasted energy. When your existing heat pump can’t meet the demands to heat your home efficiently it puts a strain on your utility bill as the whole system has to work harder. A new ductless system will keep energy usage down, and in turn, reduce your heating costs.

Comfort

When you have your new ductless heat pump installed in the fall, your family will be warm all winter long. And, your new system will run efficiently and dependably for years to come.

Choosing a new HVAC system using ductless mini-split installation provides state-of-the-art heating, improved efficiency and dependable home comfort. 

Ductless heating contractors can provide you with information, quotes and installation appointments before the winter rush! Now’s the time to make the call.
