The Importance of Professional Heating Installation
Heating installation is a highly technical skill that takes years of training and experience to master. An improperly installed furnace can cause a variety of problems: inefficient heating, premature wear and tear on parts, or in worst-case scenarios, jeopardizing the health and safety of those living in the home. While there are many projects around the house that homeowners can undertake safely, furnace installation is not one of them. When it comes time to upgrade your furnace, make sure that you hire a professional, licensed HVAC technician.
All of the technicians at Martino HVAC are fully licensed, qualified installers for Goodman, Daikin and Napoleon furnaces. They have the necessary training and experience to properly install these furnaces to match manufacturer specifications while also meeting the needs of your home. No matter how much research a homeowner does on heating installation, they will never be able to match the vast knowledge of a pro.
The tools required for heating installation are specialized and not ones found in an average toolbox. Along with pipe wrenches and tubing cutters, you would need access to a combustible gas detector, vacuum pump, and a micron gauge. The costs for purchasing all these tools would quickly add up to much more than hiring a professional for heating installation and you would need to spend time learning the correct way to use each tool.
Because heating installation is highly technical, many manufacturers require a professional to install their products in order to maintain product warranties. Most furnaces come with (up to) a 12-year warranty on parts, but installing your system yourself or making repairs to the unit without a professional will nullify many warranties. Voiding your furnaces’ warranty will lead to expensive service and repair bills in the future on what would have likely been covered!
Ensure that your furnace is installed correctly and safely; leave this project to the professionals.
