There is a motto in the HVAC business that goes something like this: “The most important day in the life of a heating or cooling system is installation day.” It’s something Kotz Heating, Cooling and Plumbing absolutely believes in. Our installers have the training and experience to complete any installation for home and business owners in Oakland County, Michigan.
Why it’s so important
The answer is pretty simple. A poorly installed furnace will not operate as efficiently as it should which can lead to:
- Higher than necessary utility bills
- Uneven heating that causes an uncomfortable home
- Shortened equipment life for your expensive new furnace
Making things worse, mistakes made during installation are generally much more difficult and expensive to fix after the fact.
Installation day is the culmination
To be clear, a good installation starts long before the Kotz installers show up at your home. It takes a detailed examination of your house to assure a properly sized furnace is installed. This includes many factors with some of the most important being:
- Expected level of comfort from the homeowner(s)
- Size of the home (square footage)
- Level of insulation
- Number of windows
- Which direction do they face
- Overall weather tightness of the home
If you EVER have an HVAC salesperson tell you larger capacity heaters or furnaces are always better when it comes to heating your home, run the other direction as fast as you can. Too much heating capacity leads to something called short cycling (turning on and off for short periods of time) which can cause it to wear out more quickly. A system that’s too small won’t be able to keep your home comfortable. Just like the story of the three bears, our experts will find the system that’s just right for your home.
The air ducts must be of the proper size to match the new furnace and they must be installed correctly. Anything that restricts the airflow means your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump has to work that much harder. Kotz has the expertise to design and install an engineered duct system or modify the existing ductwork to ensure consistent comfort throughout your living or work space.
