When it comes time to replace your old heating equipment due to high energy use, age, mounting repair bills, or its untimely death, you will need an HVAC contractor to come out to your house and provide an estimate for the new heater installation. Unlike when your toaster goes out, you cannot just buy a new heating system unit and plug it in.
The quality of the installation determines the heating equipment’s life span and efficiency. It is important to choose a company that has highly trained installers and technicians that have a long history of satisfied customers.
An experienced and dedicated company will give you a professional bid, installation, financing options, and service on the equipment if anything happens to go wrong. You’ll also want to make sure that the company is fully insured.
Contractors must take into account many factors in choosing the right equipment for you, including:
- Duct size
- Electrical connections
- Changes in the house since the last system was installed
- Equipment location
- Noise levels
- Indoor air quality
- What the customer wants to achieve by changing the equipment
When you obtain bids for a new heater installation, more than likely you will receive a wide range of prices for the same equipment. The variance in prices is typically due to the installation. Be aware that the cheapest bid can end up costing you more in the long run.
A proper heating system installation will not leak, will be properly sized and ducted, will not have excessive noise due to vibration or airflow. The heating equipment will be stable, secure, neat, and most of all, safe.
