Some furnace contractors are not qualified to install your equipment.


​​Choosing the Right Contractor

Even if you have the right-sized equipment, and the brand and model that’s best for your certain situation, you still aren’t in the clear. 

In order for your furnace to function properly, you need to have it installed correctly. If your furnace is improperly installed, it could mean unexpected repair costs and lost energy savings down the road. 

One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is to only compare the equipment cost when it comes to choosing the right contractor. Although the cost of the unit is important, it ends up being only a fraction of the total cost of ownership. Getting your brand new furnace installed by an inexperienced (or worse, unqualified) technician can spell trouble for you down the road.

Here are the tell-tale signs that you might be making the wrong choice when it comes to choosing a contractor to install your new furnace: ​​

1. The contractor doesn’t have appropriately certified personnel to perform a furnace installation. One thing to look for is the TSSA (Technical Standards and Safety Authority) number on their truck, which will tell you they are qualified to install a gas furnace.

2. The contractor doesn’t offer maintenance and service guarantees. If they aren’t willing to accept the risk of mistakes occurring during the installation process, this should raise some serious red flags.
