Heating System Installation

There are different types of forced air furnaces because of the different technologies used to meet energy efficiency and user comfort goals. Furnaces fall into two broad category types: Conventional Furnace and Condensing Furnace.

Understanding Your Heating System

Your home’s heating efforts start with three major components. The first is the source of warm air, meaning your furnace. The second is the path that distributes the warm air throughout your home such as your ducts, vents and registers. The third is the device used to control the indoor temperature; this would be your thermostat. If any of these three major components are not running properly, your home is not heating properly.

Adding to the efficiency of your system would include taking a look at the attic insulation, what good is heating your home if the heat is not staying in? Other additions that help with keeping the heat from escaping are dual paned windows and ensuring that any cracks under doors are blocked.

Heating Install Safety

First, your HVAC technician will shut off all heat sources before starting. During the installation process, your heat will be disconnected. Most installs should take about one day, but adding in ductwork or insulation portions of the job may add a few more hours.

Passing Code

Pulling a permit is essential for any new central heat installation. When a permit is pulled to do work on your home, upon the conclusion of installation the county will have an inspector ensure that the job was done correctly and to the proper safety standards. Hiring an expert that knows the ins and outs of installation and inspection is important!

A couple weeks ago my husband and I decided that our furnace needed a tuneup, so after looking at all the good reviews on Yelp about Environmental Heating and Air I gave them a call. Sean (or Shawn) came out to do the job and found out we were missing two doors on the furnace which was letting attic dust into the unit. He took pictures with his phone and showed me exactly what was happening. The more important door came in and he fixed it today, after taking the unit apart and cleaning it. He also cleaned the condenser on our air unit. When the other door comes in he said he’ll look at the air conditioner unit more thoroughly and make sure it’s ready for summer. Because of the debris in the furnace, the life span may have been cut short and the blower motor is not in good shape. But I really appreciated that he did not try to push me to get a whole new unit. His goal is to make the one we have last as long as possible. (Is that great or what?)  And because I signed up for their maintenance plan, when we do need a new unit we’ll get discounts on the parts. A more pleasant man would be hard to find. Having him do the work was a pleasure and the heater is working so much better than it was before.
