Buying a new heating system for your home? Even in a place like Phoenix, it’s a must, but if you’ve already made your choice, you may wonder what happens next. This step by step guide can help walk you through the process and ensure you know what to expect when the installation crew arrives at your home.
Step 1: When you contacted the heating and air conditioning installation company for your new unit, a technician probably came out to your home to help you choose the best unit for the job. There are a number of factors to consider at this step as you try to select the unit that is going to meet your needs. While the initial price point may be your main concern, you should try to factor in other things as well. The efficiency rating can save you quite a bit in the long run.
What’s more, though, is that the newer, more energy efficient choices on the market today often have better options to meet your needs, too. Your technician should be able to help you choose a system that is the right size for your home, and you may want to try to look at the overall cost benefits of each as you select the right one for your home.
Step 2: Furnace removal is going to take place before anything else can happen. They’re going to need to get the old furnace out of your home so they can put a new one in. Don’t worry, though. There’s no extra cost for this. They will have already figured that into the total bill. It may, however, take a bit of work to get the old furnace out of there, so be sure that you have cleared a pathway so they can take it out of your home.
Step 3: Installation will actually begin once they have your old furnace out of the way. There’s not a lot too this process on your end. They’ll bring the new furnace in and begin hooking it up. If they need anything, you’ll know about it in advance. They may also replace some duct work if you had anything that was problematic with the old system. The better your duct work, the better your new system will be able to perform.
Step 4: Your technician should teach you more about your new furnace, how to use it, and how to maintain it once it’s installed. Simple steps like replacing your filters and ensuring the air return vents in your home aren’t blocked can do a lot for the life of your furnace.
Having a new furnace installed means great things for your home. If you have any questions about the process, ask your technician what to expect so you can be ready when the team comes to complete the installation.
