Heat Pump Replacement & Installation in Boston, MA

Is a heat pump the right investment for your Massachusetts home? If you want great energy efficiency, low heating and cooling costs, and fairly straightforward repair and maintenance, you might understand why heat pumps are so popular.

Heat pumps are a 2-in-1 heating and cooling system. They operate by moving heat rather than burning fuel, which translates to a much lower environmental impact and higher energy efficiency than fuel-based heating systems. During the summer, a heat pump acts as an air conditioner and dehumidifier so you don’t need a separate air conditioning unit.

Uniform temperature. Low maintenance. Reduced heating costs. There are plenty of reasons to switch to a heat pump from a gas-powered furnace. Or if it’s time to replace your old heat pump, call Boston Standard Company to find out about your options.

With phenomenal customer service ratings, we can guarantee the highest quality heat pump installation for all of our Boston neighbors. That’s why we’re The Company You Count On.

Boston Standard Company Home Service Plan Protection

Have you ever wished you could just use one system for both your heating and cooling needs while saving money, protecting the environment, and increasing energy efficiency? A central air or ductless heat pump could be the solution. Ductless heat pumps have fantastic energy ratings, lower monthly costs than air conditioning and traditional heating, and are relatively easy to maintain, unobtrusive, and long lasting. For very cold climates, you’ll want to make sure you've selected a "Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pump (ccASHP)" model to ensure you'll get the full heating capacity you're expecting during frigid weather. Call Boston Standard today to learn about your heat pump installation options.

modifying heater ductwork

If you already have ductwork that’s in good shape, it can likely be adapted for a heat pump.

dual furnace system

Because Boston regularly dips below freezing, make sure you've selected dual-fuel or ccASHP ductless system to ensure proper heating.

high energy bill

Costs for heat pump installation will vary, but heat pumps typically generate low monthly heating and cooling bills.

The previous owner installed the boiler to our rental unit with no drain, vent, or skim. Boston Standard has put all these on so that we can properly maintain the boiler. When the time comes, we may switch over to an air source heat pump as we did for our own unit already with Boston Standard. The call will be to Boston Standard although hopefully now despite its rough beginnings the rental boiler will now last a bit longer thanks to the work Boston Standard has done.

We received professional and courteous service from the salesman, Scott, office personnel, and the service technicians, Vic and his apprentice, Mike. We had central air installed in our home and a mini-split heat pump installed in my mother’s apartment above the garage. We look forward to using our new cooling systems this summer!

My partner and I, who own and live in a house with three units in Dorchester, had a heat pump/mini-split system installed by Boston Plumbing. We didn’t know until later that Boston Plumbing was the most experienced, expert, and widely used company for heat pumps in Massachusetts, doing hundreds of installations a year.

Answers to Common Heat Pump Replacement & Installation Questions

Is it worth installing a heat pump?

Any home investment requires careful consideration. Whether a heat pump is worth installing depends on your goals and values. A heat pump may not be the best fit for every home, depending on climate, size and layout, but can also reap many benefits: low monthly heating costs, relatively straightforward maintenance, long lifespan, high energy efficiency, low environmental impact, good value, and well-liked aesthetics.

Where should a heat pump be located?

The indoor ductless heat pump unit should be mounted in a central location on an exterior wall, and the outdoor unit should be in a shady area out of direct sunlight, where it won’t be overgrown by shrubs or weeds.

Are heat pumps noisy?

The indoor ductless unit’s noise level can be compared to rustling leaves, and is fairly unobtrusive. The outdoor unit is typically not very loud, either, unless it is going into defrost mode.
