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!

We had an excellent experience with Environmental Heating and Air. They installed an AC unit at our place, needing to modify some of the existing ductwork and the like, and did so efficiently. We had to wait over the weekend for them to come out (due to the fact that we needed a crane to get the old unit off the house), so they gave us a portable air conditioner, free of charge, to use until they were able to fix the issues with our system.

Before we decided to go with EHA, the owner came out to look at our house on his own time after I told him I was going with someone else. He said that he wanted to win our business, and that if he could come out that night whenever it was best for us, he’d be willing to come on over. He gave us the best option for our house that we’d had, and he stayed to give us a quote and to bring back that portable AC unit I spoke of. This was some of the best customer service I’ve ever had.

Our AC works beautifully, and all the people who came out to look at the unit/work on the unit were great. We had a great experience, and I highly recommend them. They also gave us a pretty good price as well. Check them out!
