Even for the handiest of homeowners, furnace installation is not a DIY project. It’s not a job for your cousin, Dave, or your neighbor, Bob. An improperly installed furnace can be a danger to you and your home at worst, and—at best—inefficient and ineffective, costing you more money down the road. Choose professional installation for your furnace. Choose Reimer.
Here are some of the reasons why hiring a professional to install your furnace is the best idea.
1. A professional will do the job right—and safe
Your furnace is one of the few appliances in your home that connects to a gas line. Whenever a new furnace replaces an older system, this change-out presents a point of danger. An experienced HVAC technician knows the protocol and steps required to safely install a new furnace, so that you’re not putting your family and home in danger.
2. Not all furnaces are the same, but our techs know them all
Even if you think you know how to handle your furnace installation, what might trip you up is that different models from different brands from different manufacturers can often be, well, very different.
An HVAC professional with experience in the field, such as those employed at Reimer, knows their way around furnaces of all types and stripes. They’ll know the differences between systems and how to properly install each.
There will be a marked difference in the way they will install the furnace as compared to a DIY job. Again, at worst, that difference could very well be your family’s safety.
3. Reimer’s team has the right tools for the job
It’s not like installing a furnace is a job that takes just a flathead screwdriver and some AA batteries. It’s a complex process that requires specialized tools—many of them unique to HVAC work. Our techs have this equipment in their vans; even if you want to DIY install your home’s heating system, you’ll have to buy or rent them from a store.
It’s not just a matter of having the tools. You have to be able to know how to use them. Our technicians are informed by years of experience and training on how to safely and properly use tools, and ensure that the furnace has been installed right. A DIY-er only has some light instructions from YouTube. It’s just not a good idea.
