A tight economy leads to even tighter budgets. We are all trying to find ways to save a few pennies, but it’s important to know where it’s safe to cut corners and where it can be dangerous. Furnace installation can seem like a daunting expense, but spending now will mean saving in the future. Here are three reasons to choose a quality installation team for your furnace:
Poor connections can lead to a carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide is odorless and colourless, meaning that it is virtually invisible to our senses. This leak can lead to CO poisoning and a myriad of health issues. It is also combustible and can lead to explosions or fires.
Having an electric furnace will save you the stress of a possible carbon monoxide leak, but faulty wiring can be just as hazardous. Incorrect wiring can cause fires or increase your energy bill unnecessarily.
Energy will be lost with faulty ductwork connections and poor sealing between the furnace and the ventilation shafts. If you furnace is noisy or spreads a lot of dust, you know something is wrong. Even if you have a top-of-the-line furnace, a poor installation can cause havoc in your home. Furthermore, if the contractor you chose for your installation was not licensed, you could invalidate your home insurance.
It’s for these reasons that you should never be afraid to ask questions when looking for a team to do work in your home. Make sure to find a team that is committed to your safety and is properly certified in HVAC.
