Expensing is not allowed for rental property. Appliances are 5 years for rental furniture and fixtures.

Jessica is correct, you cannot expense the costs. However, a heat pump is generally part of an HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) System, which means it falls in a special category and would have the same life as the building it is supporting. So assuming you have Residential Rental Property based on the 27.5 year life above, the Heat Pump would be depreciated over 27.5 years. Hope this helps,
