First, before the installation, a qualified contractor will ensure that your home is properly sealed and insulated. Without the right upgrades to your home, you may not get the most out of your new heating system. Not only will the system have to work harder to maintain comfortable temperatures, but you may also lose energy through air leaks, which won’t provide the ultimate amount of savings. We offer blower door testing and other home energy services to help you prepare for a new installation.
Proper installation can also prevent repair needs. When a heating system is sized incorrectly or installed by an unqualified technician, it can cause problems down the road. A qualified technician will also make sure that you know how to properly operate your new heating system. This can save energy since setting back the thermostat on some systems, especially dual fuel systems, can actually be more expensive to operate.
Because any type of heating installation will determine how effective your new system heats your home, you should always hire a heating contractor you can trust. This will ensure proper sizing and installation, as well as proper ductwork design and installation. Your contractor should also ensure that you have a good ventilation system if you are choosing to install a gas furnace rather than an electric model.
