There are a number of jobs that you can complete with a manual, video tutorial, or set of instructions, however, furnace installation is certainly not one of them.
If you are not qualified and trained in furnace installation, you should seek a professional to complete the task, or you risk the potential problems outlined below.
Potential problem: Electrical
For those of you with an electric furnace, an unprofessional installation may mean that faulty wiring occurs during the setup. This can lead to your furnace not working correctly, losing power, or in the worst-case scenario, a potential house fire.
While some people believe that an electrical furnace is a simpler installation, it’s still a very complex process that requires a trained professional to complete.
Potential problem: Gas leaks
With a gas furnace, gas leaks are many homeowners’ worst nightmare, as they can become extremely dangerous without anyone being aware of them, as there is often very little warning.
In order to mitigate against the potential for a gas leak, therefore, you should ensure that you go through a professional furnace installation with a reputable company.
Potential problem: Low or inefficient output
Although not as potentially dangerous as the two points above, there is also the risk of a poor furnace installation resulting in reduced energy efficiency, or lower heat output.
When being setup, there are a number of different ways that a furnace can be erroneously installed, ranging from bad sealing, to faulty ductwork connections. Having a professional complete the job is the best way of ensuring that the furnace is running to its top ability, helping you save money on your utility costs.
Potential problem: General maintenance
One key advantage to a professional furnace installation, is that you are likely to be covered for a certain period of time with a warranty, as well as potentially for maintenance, along with any repairs that are required.
This might include a boiler check-up in the future, allowing the technician to ensure that it’s running in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Having this extra layer of coverage is a reassuring option for a homeowner, while it also helps to prolong the life of the furnace.
As demonstrated above, furnace installation is not a task that should be completed without being a trained and knowledgeable professional. Therefore, choose a reliable and reputable company, to avoid the risk of the hazards pointed out above.
