Frequently Asked QUESTIONS

FAQ

Do I need a roof over my heat pump?

Some manufacturers insist a roof over your heat pump is not necessary. However, in some cases where the unit may not be running consistently, snow can accumulate inside the unit and cause issues on startup. If you prefer not to install a shelter,  you should ensure all snow is cleaned off the heat pump on a regular basis

Why can’t I use stove pipe to add some length to my existing chimney?

Chimney systems by code need to be installed once a transition through a combustible (roof or wall) is required. Once the transition to chimney is made the chimney system must be completed through to termination (chimney cap). As well, an insulated chimney serves two purposes; one is to insulate the flue gases from combustibles and second is to keep the flue gases as warm as possible. If an un-insulated pipe is fixed atop a proper chimney the warm gas are prematurely cooled and can result in poor draft and excessive creosote.
