How Much Does Heat Pump Installation Cost?


By ProMatcher Staff



Average Cost of Installing a Heat Pump

The average cost of heat pump installation is about $3,500-5,000 (including a 2.5 ton heat pump). However, there are several factors that may increase (or decrease) the cost of installation. Use the list below to find out how much your project should cost.

1. Your geographic location. If the cost of living in your area is higher, you should expect to pay higher prices for labor. Additionally, the popularity of heat pump installation varies throughout the country. If there are no local installers, you may a little extra to have a contractor travel to your home from a neighboring town.

2. Replacement vs. New Installation Heat pump replacement is typically more affordable than installing a brand new system. If the proper ventilation and ductwork are already installed, this will help you save a lot of money.

3. Type of heat pump. There are several types of heat pumps available. Air-source heat pumps are the most popular and they are typically more affordable to install. Geothermal heat pumps are a little more complicated to install, adding to the labor costs of the project. Difficult soil conditions may also increase the cost of installation.

4. Heat pump size. The size of your home and the climate in your region will determine the size of the heat pump needed. Most residential projects will use 2, 3, or 4 ton heat pumps. However, much larger heat pumps are available for very large homes and commercial installations. Heat pumps can also be used to heat swimming pools.

5. Energy efficiency. Heat pump efficiency is measured by two different values. The SEER rating is a measure of cooling efficiency whereas the HSPF measures heating efficiency. To find out more about difference, click here. You will pay a premium for high-efficiency heat pumps.

6. Type of compressor. A single mode compressor will be cheaper than a variable speed compressor.

7. Cleanup. Cleanup should be included in the cost estimate. If it’s not, make sure to get it in writing before signing a contract with your installer.
