Cost is always one of the primary, if not the primary, factor when out shopping, be it clothes or an appliance for your home such as a heat pump. And extra costs, such as installation of the appliance you just bought, can quickly escalate expenses of what you are about to purchase. Knowing the cost in advance is a good way to avoid unexpected surprises.
When selecting a heat pump, the cost of the installation is almost certainly going to be a consideration you will have to make, unless you have some other means of getting it installed. So how do you know how much to expect to pay for an installation?
Installation costs vary depending on the type of heat pump system you choose and the home it’s going into. Most installations are typical and similar, but some need to be tailored to suit custom needs, which will need to be assessed by the installer. Any extra parts will also come into the equation if needed but most of this can be assessed by the installer with a few simple questions or a quick look at your home if it seems like issues may arise.
