Don’t Tackle Furnace Installation Yourself – Call a Professional

The Weiss-Johnson Blog

Many people take on do-it-yourself projects with the aim to save money. The truth about a furnace installation is that, in the long run, it can be more expensive to fix a furnace that wasn’t installed properly. It can also nullify manufacturer warranties – leaving you on the hook for future costs – and could pose a safety risk to your family.

New furnaces are complex machines that require specialized tools to install and there are many opportunities for homeowners to make a mistake. Incorrectly installed furnaces are prone to inefficiencies, premature wear and tear on parts and complete breakdowns. This all adds up to costly repair bills down the line.

Another issue to take into consideration is that many manufacturers only guarantee their limited-parts warranties if a certified HVAC specialist performs the furnace installation. Taking the job on yourself could nullify warranties and leave you covering the costs of replacement parts in the future. 

Aside from money, there is also a risk to your safety when performing your own furnace installation. Efficient, properly installed furnaces produce very little carbon monoxide (a colorless, odourless and tasteless toxic gas), and what is produced is safely carried out of the home through the furnace’s exhaust pipes. Improperly installed units produce more carbon monoxide and, if care is not taken, there could be a chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home. Only certified technicians have the training and tools to ensure that your home is free of carbon monoxide leaks.

Our HVAC technicians have been educated and training to master their craft.  They know heating systems inside and out and can diagnose, perform furnace repair or install a variety of makes and models.

The size and type of home you have, your mechanical room location, and how you live in your home are all things that will be considered in choosing the proper furnace for your home.
