The Process of Installing a Furnace
Chicago weather can be brutal in the winter, which is why you need a dependable furnace to keep your home warm. To ensure you end up with the best equipment for your needs, your ABC Comfort Consultant will follow our proven furnace installation process. Here is what’s involved:
- Make sure a furnace is right for you: While it’s the most popular type of home heating equipment, a furnace isn’t your only choice for staying comfortable in the winter. We’ll make sure your lifestyle, comfort preferences, budget, and air quality concerns match the heating equipment you select.
- Choose a manufacturer: As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, ABC installs some of the most efficient, long-lasting, and dependable furnaces available today. We’re happy to give you more details about the exact models we carry when you contact us for a heating installation estimate.
- Select an efficiency rating: In Chicago, where the winters are long and the temperatures can be extreme, it pays to have a high-efficiency furnace. We’ll help you calculate the payback period when you invest in an ENERGY STAR® certified furnace. This tells you whether the heater provides a satisfactory return on investment to make the purchase worthwhile.
- Perform sizing calculations: Some contractors size new furnaces based on square footage alone, but this doesn’t paint an accurate picture of your home’s heating load. By taking into account your home’s size, insulation levels, air infiltration rates, window layout, interior heat gain, and other factors, we can size your furnace for maximum performance and efficiency.
- Discuss financing options: We know investing in a new furnace can strain the budget, so we offer financing for our complete line of energy-efficient Carrier furnaces.
- Install your new heater: On installation day, a technician will arrive on time and install your new furnace to the manufacturer’s exact specifications. We’ll calibrate the system for comfort and energy savings, teach you to use the programmable thermostat, and haul the old equipment away.
The Benefits of Choosing a Carrier Brand Furnace
When we install new furnace systems for clients in Chicago and the surrounding areas, our team always chooses to install Carrier brand heating equipment when possible. Why? Well, we could talk about their long-standing history as a leader in HVAC, but in the end, that’s not really the point.
We pick Carrier systems because they offer some of the best benefits possible. At ABC, our goal has always been to provide our clients with the best in customer service and quality, and picking a top-class brand is part of that. Carrier furnace systems are:
- Diverse. No two homes are exactly alike and neither are their heating needs. You need a system that is sized and suited according to your needs and home, and with Carrier’s excellent range of options, you’re certain to be covered.
- Innovative. Carrier has never let up in the design department. They’re always looking for ways to better their heating units, and what results is a cutting-edge furnace that offers the best in quiet operation, peerless performance, and dependable home heating.
- Powerful. An Illinois winter is nothing to scoff at, but even the coldest night of the season can’t beat the power and sheer heating throughput of a modern Carrier unit.
- Efficient. With lots of systems, high power and performance come at a price. But with Carrier, efficiency has always grown right alongside power, meaning that their systems offer excellent heating at a minimal impact on your wallet.
Frequently Asked Furnace Questions
- What is the average life expectancy of a gas furnace? For an electric furnace, you should be able to expect around a decade, maybe a bit more. Gas furnaces often operate for 10-15 years, sometimes longer if the system is maintained well.
- How long does it take to put in a new furnace? Once the selection process is over, the actual installation of your furnace system should take a single business day, depending on the project complexity.
- Can a homeowner install a gas furnace themselves? Absolutely not! Furnace equipment of any type requires absolute precision and a specific set of tools. Anything less than perfection can result in wasted time, wasted money, and even safety risks.
