And when you combine superior Carrier engineering with a quality installation from a Michael & Son installation team? Well, there’s nothing like it anywhere else. Give us a call today and see for yourself! Estimates are always free at Michael & Son, so you’ve got nothing to lose.


What's the cost to replace a heat pump in Richmond?

A heat pump replacement in Richmond typically falls within this price range:

  • Low $8,500
  • Our Average $12,000
  • High $18,000

How Michael & Son determines your estimate

  • We start with a load calculation: Michael & Son performs a meticulous load calculation to ensure the heat pump is properly sized for your home. Size plays a factor in cost (more tonnage = higher price tag) and comfort (too small, and some rooms may not heat up or cool down!)
  • We discuss system options: Our manufacturing partner, Carrier, offers a range of heat pumps with various efficiency ratings. These ratings matter for two reasons: they impact your monthly energy savings and how much you’ll pay for the system when you buy it. Our experts will work with you to weigh the options, aiming to balance monthly cost savings with the upfront cost of buying the new system.
  • We ask you about your comfort needs: Modern heat pumps come with plenty of comfort-enhancing features that may or may not interest you. We bring them up because we think they’re awesome, and some of our customers swear by them. That said, our focus isn’t on upselling you anything. If you aren’t interested, that’s okay, too! Some of the features our customers love include variable speed motors, smart thermostat options, and (our personal favorite) noise-reduction mechanisms.
  • Want an extended warranty? No problem: Michael & Son has exceptional labor warranties that come standard with the purchase of a new heat pump system. Carrier, too, offers excellent warranty protections for parts. But if you’re looking for even more protection, we can help with that. We offer extended warranties to our customers for a slight increase in the cost of the system. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to let your expert know!
