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.
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!
