The short answer is “way too much for anyone other than a professional HVAC installer to handle!” We aren’t going to leave you with such a broad statement, of course. In today’s post, we are going to look at what a heating installation actually entails. It is a very complex process, and every step needs to be completed with the skill and expertise that only trained professionals can offer. There is a lot riding on the quality of your heating system installation.
We are talking about the overall performance quality of your heater, of course, but we are also talking about the integrity of the system and even your own safety. Clearly, your heating installation is not something to rush and it is not something to underestimate. The fact that you are reading this right now means that you are well on your way to a great heating installation in Atlanta, though. Our winters are not frigid, but you still need a great heating experience!
Ductless systems. Furnaces. Radiant heating. Heat pumps. High velocity mini duct systems. There are a lot more heaters out there than some homeowners realize. It does not matter if you are replacing an old heater or if you are deciding on a new heater for a brand new home. You need to take the time necessary for familiarizing yourself with the different options.
If you don’t, you risk overlooking the system that actually suits your needs and user preferences perfectly. Sure, you could just replace your old furnace with a new one—but why not see what else is out there? A little extra research never hurt anybody!
If you are just replacing a system with a similar one, there may not be too much design work that needs to go into the process. Even so, the original design should be reassessed to determine if it is the best possible layout. If you are having a brand new type of heater installed, then the design of the system needs to be completed with the utmost care.
Even great heaters are going to fail to impress if the system is not properly designed specifically for your home. This includes the sizing of your system, as well the layout of its heat distribution system, controls, and other components. Again, this type of work can only be completed by qualified professionals.
And now is the time for the installation! A lot of work leads up to it, but ultimately the installation itself is going to make or break your heater. If every component, from the thermostat to the air handler, hydronic tubing, or ducts are not installed properly, then your heater is never going to function as effectively, efficiently, and reliably as it should.
This is not even to mention the potential for danger that the improper installation of electrical components and gas piping can carry. Working with us means that you won’t have to worry about any of that, fortunately.
