If you’re considering getting a new heater installation for the coming winter, now is the time to call for professional assistance. The heating installation process begins before a single tool comes out. Our Lynnwood heating installation specialists can give you invaluable aid in picking the right heater type for your home, as well as perform a heat load calculation to determine the correct size that will keep you warm without overworking.
However, the actual installation is where you need professionals the most. G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. has installed heating systems in Lynnwood, WA for thirty-six years, and we can tell you from our experience exactly why this isn’t a job left to amateurs.
Consider trying to install a geothermal heat pump on your own: would you even know where to start? Geothermal systems need to have coils buried in the ground where they can extract the earth’s heat, but only certain spots are suitable for this task. How deep should the coils be buried? How do they connect to the house? Is just a shovel good enough for getting them into the ground?
It does sound overwhelming, even for the most extreme DIY hobbyist, doesn’t it? You’ll need professional installation to get the job done right. This applies to heaters that seem less complex than a geothermal heat pump, like an electric furnace. Today’s effective and efficient heaters are complex devices, and it takes years of training and experience to know how to repair and maintain them—let alone install them. Professionals not only know how to get the installation done, but they have access to specialized tools that will speed up the process and make it go smoothly.
A proper installation will mean fewer repair problems in the future. You may think that doing the job yourself or finding a friend or relative to take it on will save you money, but improper installation can cause years of headaches from expensive repairs.
There’s also the issue of safety to worry about. A shoddy installation job can leave you with a heater that will lower the quality of your indoor air. Even worse, if it is not properly hooked up to a power system or has bad wiring, the heater will turn into a fire hazard.
Make sure you start off life with your new heater the best way: with highly-trained technicians helping you through each step of the installation. In Lynnwood, WA, heating installation experts like those at G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. can make sure the job gets done right the first time, leaving you with fewer worries for years to come.
