Why should you hire a professional and experienced technician to install your furnace? There are many reasons why you should hire a professional vs. attempting “Do it Yourself” projects. The main reason to hire a professional HVAC technician is for your safety and also the safety of those that live in the same home that your furnace will be operating.
Do You Know Everything it Takes to Successfully Install a Furnace?
Here are a few terms that you may not know a darn thing about when it comes to just this one piece of machinery in your home:
- Heat exchanger
- Heat load calculation
- Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency
- Blower motor
- Cubic feet per minute
- Condensing furnace
- Crawl space
- Thermocouple & Flame sensor
- Downflow furnace
- Natural-draft furnace
….And a few more that are not listed here! Learning the terminology and “what goes where” is a lot to learn if you have no knowledge to begin with. Then, you would have to practice until you get the job done right completely through and through.
Things a professional and experienced technician will be able to tell you about a furnace in your home for example is the size of what is appropriate for the size of your home. A smaller furnace will never properly distribute heat evenly through your home. You may end up paying MORE over time by simply not having the correct furnace installed.
