Certain home maintenance and repair jobs are easy for homeowners, while others can be accomplished after some research and a trip to the home improvement store. Then there are jobs that should never be attempted on your own– like heating installation – which is a job best left to certified professionals.
The number one reason to leave furnace installation to professionals is that it’s dangerous. There are many ways that a person can injure themselves during the installation process. An even greater concern is the chance of a carbon monoxide leak once a furnace is installed and running. The odourless, colourless, toxic gas can escape into your home if the proper precautions are not taken and a thorough check is not performed after installation.
Furnaces are complex machines and a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) technician has devoted themselves to a career in learning the trade. They have years of training and hands-on experience as well as certifications for installing furnaces to meet manufacturer specifications. The average homeowner will not have the necessary skills or expertise to perform heating installation in their home. Improperly installing a furnace can lead to premature wear and tear on parts and a shorter life expectancy of the unit.
There are no savings for the homeowner if parts break down or the unit does not perform as expected because of faulty heating installation. You must consider that many manufacturers require professional installation to guarantee their warranties on parts. If you install a furnace yourself and it breaks, you might be on the hook for the costs, rather than having the manufacturer cover them. In addition, most professional installers provide warranties or guarantees for service and installation above and beyond what the manufacturers offer.
