3 Reasons You Need a Pro for Your Furnace Installation

technician-working-on-furnaceLook, we get how tempting it is when you need a new heating system to install it yourself. After all, this will help you save money, right?

But unless we’re talking about a space heater that just plugs into an outlet in the wall, we really need to advise against self-installation.

The problem with trying to attempt installation on your own is that there are a number of intricate steps involved with this service, and if any of those steps are missed or are done too hastily it can lead to problems like gas line damage or torn ductwork, among other issues that could lead to premature system breakdown. Essentially, furnace systems are very complex pieces of equipment that require trained and experienced hands to manage.

Of course, if you’re in the process of shopping for a furnace right now, chances are there is quite a bit of urgency involved. But please don’t rush. Give our number a call to schedule a furnace installation, and read on to learn 3 reasons why you should trust the pros:

We Know How to Properly Remove the Old System

“Huh? Remove the old system? Isn’t that the easiest part?”

Not quite! In fact, it can be the most laborious part. Your furnace has a number of components and parts that have to be properly disposed of to remain safe. This is especially true if you have a gas-powered furnace system. Fortunately, our experienced staff knows just how to handle this.

You also want to keep in mind that forcefully removing an old system, or failing to disconnect important parts before pulling the system out, can create irreversible damage that will affect the new furnace. If your gas line is damaged for instance, this can become a safety hazard. If you puncture any ductwork, it will impact the efficiency of your furnace and your air conditioner.

We Know How to Make Mistake-Free Connections

Speaking of those connections, once the new furnace is in place, our professionals have to connect it to the aforementioned components—your gas line and your ductwork. Or if you have an electric furnace, important electrical connections must be made.

An important thing to remember here is that sometimes during installation, ductwork needs to be shifted in order to make proper connections. Our pros can do this without damaging any components in your furnace, including electrical connections and the ductwork itself.

We Test Your Furnace Before We Leave!

Could you imagine if we just stuck your furnace in your home, and then left without actually making sure it worked? Testing your new furnace system’s functionality is the last and most important step in professional furnace installation. Our job is literally not complete until we’ve done this, as you wouldn’t know what to expect if we skipped testing the system.

Letting an amateur or general handyman install your furnace means potentially having something go wrong that you’ll have no clue about, because they didn’t even know to look for that problem.

When our team installs your furnace, we’ll turn it on, measuring the intake and the airflow in order to make sure that operation is sufficient, and we will ensure that no safety issues are present.
