Why You Should Only Trust a Pro for Your Furnace Installation

furnace-jetsHas the time finally come for you to accept that your old furnace just isn’t what it used to be? Perhaps it’s time for you to upgrade to a newer and higher-efficiency system. Furnace installation is a big job, and one that requires experienced and knowledgeable technicians to handle.

Homeowners often don’t realize this, but a proper furnace installation starts before we actually put the furnace in. We can assist with the important tasks of selecting the right heater for your specific needs, and ensuring it is sized correctly as well.

The fact of the matter is, a lot of work goes into a furnace installation, and messing up this job could leave you with an inefficient, ineffective system. Read on as we explore just why it’s so important to only trust a trained and experienced professional for your furnace installation.

We Safely Remove the Old Heater

This is actually the most laborious and longest part of the installation process! While it doesn’t involve the new heating system at all yet, our installers have to remove your former heating system without damaging components that will be needed for the new one. We’ll also need to properly dispose of it.

Whether you had a gas furnace or an electric heat pump, there are components within it that could be harmful to the environment and even your home, such as gasoline fuel and refrigerant.

We Make the Proper Connections

Once your new furnace is put into place, and typically bolted to the floor, our technicians work to connect it to the important components of your home in order for it to function. High on this list is your ventilation system, which requires hooking the furnace up to the ductwork.

Sometimes, ductwork will need to be shifted a big to make these connections. Our technicians will do this carefully, then connect your heater to its power source. Making a link to a gas line and/or electrical components and wires is a careful job that we have the licensing and know-how to complete.

We Test Your New Heater

This is the final task in a furnace installation, but the most important. After all, if we left your home after installing your new heater without testing its functionality, you may never know if it’s performing as effectively and efficiently as it should. You could wind up with a malfunctioning system or one that doesn’t last as long as it should because of improper care.

Our technicians won’t leave until we know your system is working as it should, which includes working safely!

While these steps may sound relatively simple, a furnace or heating installation isn’t a job that can be taken on by any DIY enthusiast. This job requires trained professionals who know what it takes to create a safe and effective heating installation.
