Furnace Installation: What to Expect and How to Prepare in Northwest Chicago
Buying a new furnace for your northwestern Chicago home or business is a major investment that should last for years. According to the Department of Energy, improper installation of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems is a leading cause of problems, including shortened service life, poor energy efficiency and poor performance. In contrast, a properly installed furnace can provide 15 or more years of comfort.
The certified service technicians at Universal HVAC Group, Inc. undergo regular training on new technologies to bring you the best professional installation services and technological expertise. Here are ways to prepare for your new installation.
What We Do During a New Installation
We work with clients during every step of the installation process. After we talk with you about your budget, indoor climate needs and energy efficiency requirements, we recommend appropriate products. We do a load calculation using industry standards to determine the size of furnace required.
If you are replacing a furnace, we ensure the existing ductwork is compatible with the new equipment. We provide a written, detailed cost estimate to ensure you understand what you are buying and the price. We explain the benefits of the new model, how it operates and the warranty.
We schedule the installation date and call you before we arrive. Our team respects your property and makes every effort to keep the worksite neat. After installation, we demonstrate how your new furnace operates and provide our contact information so that you can get in touch if you have questions.
How to Prepare for Our Visit
There are several steps you can take to help us work efficiently when we arrive at your home:
- Clear a path for equipment to be brought in and removed.
- Keep pets out of the way.
- Clean and clear the area around the installation site. We recommend a clearance of at least 30 inches on all sides. Your community building codes may specify the amount of space required for access and safety.
- Clean the grilles and registers of ducts.
- Be available to answer questions during the installation process.
