We will make sure your furnace installation goes smoothly from start to finish.

Choosing A Furnace To Install

There are a lot of furnaces on the market to choose from today. Electric, gas and oil are the three most common kinds of furnaces used. Which type you choose, depends on your home’s or business’s particular needs and which type will be most cost-effective.


An electric furnace contains electric warming components that utilize electric power to heat the air. The furnace has a blower that blows air into the different rooms through vents. The upfront cost of an electric furnace is less than other units. Because of the amount of electricity used though, they can cost more to run.


Natural gas furnaces use gas that comes from a municipal gas line. A burner in the furnace ignites the gas and filters and heats the air. As the local utility price of gas is usually less than electric, these furnaces are generally less expensive to operate. On the downside, these furnaces require more maintenance than electric furnaces. If routinely maintenanced though, they may last as much as 10 years longer than an electric furnace.


If a property does not have access to a gas line, an oil run furnace may be a good choice. With these types of furnaces you must pay attention to tank levels, so that you do not run out in the middle of a cold season. If you choose an oil furnace, your heating bills may be higher than with gas.

What To Expect Before A New Installation

When one of our representatives arrives at your home, they will first do a proper load calculation. This takes into account things like the size, number and quality of your windows, the condition of your insulation, and a number of other things that can affect how powerful your new furnace needs to be.

Then, they will check your ductwork to make sure it is properly sized and can accommodate the airflow of a new system, considering the supply coming from the furnace to the air ducts and the return air supply that goes back into the blower motor.

Next, they will measure the area where the new furnace will be installed to ensure a proper fit, and check electrical wiring and gas lines to make sure that they are also set up properly before the installation.

Depending on the type of furnace to be installed, a new PVC drain line or chimney flue liner may have to be installed. Also, if an existing air-conditioning unit is already installed, it may be necessary to have a certain type of equipment that allows the two to be compatible. This is due to the fact that the furnace’s blower motor moves air for both the heating and cooling, so will need to be calibrated to accommodate each.

All of these things are incredibly important, because if not addressed they can lead to big problems. For instance, if you have improperly sized air ducts, you may end up having to pay 10 to 30% higher utility bills throughout the life of your system. The equipment will also have to work harder and will not last as long. This could mean you end up wasting thousands of dollars simply because an installation consultant did not take the proper time to check over everything when they came to your home.

Many of the issues that homeowners experience with their furnaces are not because of expected wear and tear but are from bad installation practices. Starting off by choosing the right installer is the best way to ensure that you do not end up with long-term issues.
