Hiring a company for your residential or commercial heating system installation is an important choice. It is worth the time to research and learn about companies in your area before making a choice for a few reasons, not the least of which is the correct installation of the system itself.
This is true for both a new home or commercial building installation or replacing an old furnace, heat pump or system in an existing building. Both types of installations will require a full understanding of regulations, code requirements and safety as well as the optimal set-up of the system.
Familiar with the System
Virtually all HVAC services that provide residential and commercial services will be able to work with any type of heating system. This will include boilers, gas and electric furnaces as well as heat pumps.
While most types of heating system installation is similar, particularly between the major brands, it is important to ask specifically about the experience of the company and of the technician with regards to installation of the specific system.
The more experience the company has, the easier and faster the installation will be. Additionally, the technician will be able to avoid common problems with the installation and troubleshooting any potential issues.
While the HVAC company may be licensed, verify that the technicians that come to complete your heating system installation are also licensed. It is not uncommon for a “helper” to come with a licensed technician to provide assistance and to work with supervision.
Unfortunately, some HVAC companies may send people to the home that aren’t trained and licensed, which can result in problems during the install or even issues with the warranty.
Finally, don’t forget to use the internet to check customer reviews on the company. These can be very helpful in finding a professional service you can work with for your installation, maintenance and any necessary HVAC system repairs.
