To help you understand your mounting options for your new heat pump, we’ve provided a brief explanation of each one below.

Outdoor Unit Mounting Options:

Ground Mounted
This is the typical installation option with regard to the installation of the outdoor unit. We use this method approximately 90 percent of the time. The Heat Pump Store has pioneered several simple ways to make our ground installations stay level and firm for many, many years.

Wall Mounted
This technique is more common in Europe and Asia. We love it because it ensures that the unit stays level and has good draining and airflow. The Heat Pump Store has pioneered several techniques to prevent noise and vibration from being a problem with wall mounted units. This technique is very useful for sloped yards, narrow side yards with limited set-back, and areas with prized landscaping.

Indoor Unit Options:

Wall Mounted Types
This is the most common type of indoor unit because it is the most affordable, most energy-efficient, and most powerful option. It is also the quietest choice!

Floor Mounted Types
This is a great option as well because we find there are some cases when we cannot use a wall mounted option. For example, floor mounted units are the more preferred choice for attic rooms, rooms with lots of windows, and more. Its great to have this as a fallback.
