Questions and Answers About New Furnace Installation


If you have questions about the installation of a new furnace, then you aren't alone. A lot of people find themselves having their own questions about having furnaces installed. You can read some the questions and also learn the answers to those questions right here.

When should you consider replacing a current furnace?

If you already have a furnace and it's an older one, but still works fine, you may be wondering when you should consider having it replaced with a new one. If you have a furnace that is approaching the 10-year mark, then you should seriously consider having a new one installed. Once the furnace is 10 years, it is going to be beneficial for you to get a new one because not only will you know that it will last you for many years, but also know that it will heat your home more efficiently; creating a warm home for less cost.

What are some signs that your furnace needs to be replaced?

One of the signs your furnace may give you that lets you know it's time to have a new one installed is a sudden increase in your heating bills that exceeds what you saw at the same time of year in the past. Another sign the furnace is in need of replacement is if it is heating the house less evenly than it used to and hearing it starting to make loud noises.

Can you save money by installing the furnace on your own?

The vast majority of the time, you should not be installing your own furnace. There are many reasons why you want to have a professional HVAC technician come out to install your new furnace in your home for you. For one thing, you want to know that the furnace has been installed in a way that makes it safe for use. Depending on the type of furnace you are using, the dangers can be either gas or electrical and both come with risks that can even be fatal if installed incorrectly. Also, you want to know that the furnace is going to work correctly and if you aren't experienced then the best way to know this is to have an experienced technician install it. Also, if anyone except an HVAC technician installs the furnace, the warranty on the furnace can be void. This means that even if something is wrong with the furnace that would have still not worked even if it had been professionally installed, you will have to pay for repairs or even full replacement of the furnace out of your own pocket.
