Why Risk a Poor Furnace Installation?

Don’t DIY. Leave it to the pros.

furnace installation problems new yorkConsider the intricacies of your cell phone compared to a rotary phone from decades ago. The car you drive has sophisticated components that would have looked like science fiction to your grandparents. In much the same way, HVAC equipment is getting increasingly advanced. Today’s furnaces are a complex mix of electronic and mechanical components that connect to computerized elements. So, unless it’s your area of expertise, installing a furnace is not the time to put your DIY skills to the test. Leave it to the professionals.

The problem with a poor furnace installation

Hiring a professional to install your furnace gives you peace of mind that everything will not just work but work optimally. Here are some of the problems that can arise with a poor furnace installation:

  1. Poor efficiency: Poor installation can undermine the benefits of a high efficiency furnace. If your furnace is installed incorrectly or poorly sized, it will work harder than necessary in heating your home. When your heating equipment uses too much energy to heat your home, you’ll literally pay the price with higher heating costs every month. A proper professional furnace installation will save you money in the long run.
  2. Electrical issues: Poor furnace installation can lead to an overloaded circuit breaker. When your circuit breaker trips, your heating service is interrupted.
  3. Subpar ductwork: If the ductwork isn’t up to standard, that can cost you hundreds of dollars a year in wasted warm air. Again, spending money now for a professional installation will ensure you get the most out of your furnace and save you money over time.
  4. Fuel leaks: An improper connection to you heating system’s fuel lines can lead to a fuel leak. In addition to diminishing the performance and efficiency of you heating system, a fuel leak is a serious safety issue. Don’t put your family’s safety at risk. It isn’t worth it.
  5. Poor ventilation: This is another serious risk to you and your family. Don’t risk it.
