Heating system installation and replacement
We offer quality installations of residential gas furnaces, electric heaters, heat pump systems, mobile home furnaces and propane furnaces, among many others.
When should you replace a unit?
Furnaces generally last 15-20 years while heat pumps tend to last anywhere from 10-15, depending on a number of factors.
For example, if the homeowner before you tried to save money with DIY maintenance (overlooking key factors involved in furnace and heat pump care over the years), or if maintenance was avoided altogether, you might need an earlier replacement than normal. Other factors include the manufacturer (some are better than others) and if the system was sized correctly for your home to begin with.
Thinking long-term, preemptively replacing your central heating system is often more economical than keeping an existing one going. That's because you might not know your heating unit is on its last leg until you've sunk almost the amount it would take to replace it into short-term repairs. Plus, you'll probably endure untimely and stressful breakdowns when you could be enjoying a more comfortable home and lower utility bills. What could be more frustrating?
Our licensed, local HVAC technicians will happily look over your system and let you know what makes sense, and what doesn't. That's how neighbors should treat neighbors!
Repair or replace?
Occasionally, we're called out for a seemingly major problem that's taken care of with a minor repair (i.e. loose wiring, a blocked exhaust vent, a dirty filter, debris in the unit or a clogged drain tube). But, the opposite is also true.
As a general rule of thumb, if you notice any of the following, it's time to call us, with the expectation that a replacement could be on the horizon:
- • Air contamination (dust particles, soot and carbon monoxide - which can cause nausea, headaches, flu-like symptoms, or eye and nose irritation)
- • Frequent repairs (not including seasonal maintenance)
- • Increasing bills (compared to last year)
- • Off-color flame (example: in gas furnaces, the burner flame should be blue)
- • Rising humidity (moisture isn't being pulled from the air)
- • Uneven heating (some rooms stay cold while others get warm)
- • Unusual noises (i.e. sizzling, crackling, popping, snapping, humming, buzzing)
- • Visible deterioration (water leaks, corrosion, rust, and/or cracks on the heat exchanger)
New unit efficiency
While it might be expensive up-front to purchase a new furnace, updating can cut your monthly heating bills dramatically - sometimes by half!
Newer gas-burning furnaces up to 95% efficient have been around for years, yet we still come across older units that are operating at 50% - or worse! What this means is that for every bit of heat that warms your home, an equal amount escapes into an attic, basement, or crawlspace, or out through a furnace exhaust pipe. The advanced technology in today's high-efficiency gas and electric furnaces also allows them to operate at different stages or speeds, so they're not constantly running at full capacity. This means that your new furnace doesn't need to work as hard as your older unit did, will almost certainly be quieter, and will likely last longer, too.
Our comprehensive installation quotes include a detailed explanation of everything included with your new unit, so you can make an informed choice about buying a new central heating system.
Protecting you from gas leaks
As part of our expert general maintenance and thorough inspections, our licensed, local HVAC technicians use industry-specific diagnostic equipment to carefully test gas combustion furnaces for output of carbon monoxide and other pollutants, regardless of whether it comes from a cracked heat exchanger or somewhere else in your furnace or ventilation system.
We make sure that all of the safety checks that were built into your original furnace or heat pump or put in place when it was installed are still connected and working like they should.
Each of our service vehicles is equipped with a full set of the best time-tested tools and diagnostic equipment in our field to make sure everything about your furnace or heat pump is working as it should. No sharing equipment, skipping diagnostics, or saying "we'll be back later." When we leave a service call, you know whether or not your equipment is safe.
Types of furnaces and heaters we install
After analyzing your home and taking into account square footage, number of rooms, and other factors, we'll recommend the type of heating system you need.
As mentioned above, we install residential gas furnaces, electric heaters, heat pump systems, mobile home furnaces and propane furnaces, among many others. We install and service brands such as Amana, American Standard, Arco-Aire, Armstrong, Bryant, Carrier, Coleman, Comfortmaker, Concord, Conquest, Daikin, Ducane, Franklin, GE, GMC, Goodman, Heil, Honeywell, Janitrol, Kalvinator, Lennox, Luxaire, Miller, Payne, Ruud, Tempstar, Trane, WeatherKing, Weathermaker, White-Rogers, and many others.
How long does an installation take to complete?
Typically, furnace installations take about a day to complete. We will remove your old furnace and take it away, install the new one, install any components (i.e. thermostat, UV light, humidifier, dehumidifier), reconnect the ductwork, calibrate the controls, and test your new installation.
We always do a final walk-through with you to make sure you're happy, that you understand the operation of your new unit, and to answer any questions you may have.
Does my new heating system come with a warranty?
Yes! We offer a limited lifetime warranty1 on all of our central heating installations, in addition to any limited warranty provided with your equipment or extended warranty offered by the manufacturer. If anything about our installation fails (i.e. we installed it poorly), you're covered.2 Just let us know.
Of course, we like call backs about as much as you do (see also: we don't like them), and that's why we send only qualified technicians, inspect all of our work when we're done, and do a final walk-through with you, our customer, making sure you're happy with our work. But mistakes do happen (rarely) and parts fail on occasion, so if that's the case, please let us know.

1 Our lifetime warranty is limited to the original, registered homeowner of a properly matched system. This means your HVAC system equipment is covered for as long as you own your home, but once you sell your house, the warranty reverts back to the factory warranty.
2 Service agreement required. Our philosophy is that since we installed the system, we know it's going to work the way it should. As long as we're in a position to keep the system in proper working order (that's where the service agreement comes in!), we're more than happy to warranty our labor.
