Your Furnace Installation Cost: Every Factor You Need To Know
We’re getting into the nitty gritty of what goes into determining the cost of your furnace installation. Procedural installations can go one of many ways, especially when there are other problems that don’t just stick to your new unit. Issues with a brand new unit are immediately diagnosed by our trained professionals, but underlying issues that arise shortly after the installation process can really put a twist on things. These are the top three things that can go wrong with your furnace.
- Total Breakdown From a Clogged Air Filter
Your furnace is that one piece in your home that doesn’t often see much love. We get it. It’s doing its job, why are you going to bother it? Truth of the matter is, a lot of full breakdowns, where your furnace becomes severely damaged, are caused by the easiest fix possible: a clogged air filter. These are things that you can often change yourself, so you can upkeep your furnace maintenance. Set a recurring alarm on your phone, or use a calendar app to remind you to switch out your air filter on a regular basis. It’s essentially the lungs of your furnace, and clean, easy-flowing air is just as important to your furnaces health.
- Split or Damaged Heat Exchanger
This one comes with some serious possible effects, so beware if you think that this is an issue that’s going on with your furnace. As time goes on and continued use commences, your heat exchanger develops little cracks along the way, which spells certain disaster. It’s no laughing matter—carbon monoxide can leak into your home slowly, and as the damage continues to wreak havoc on your heat exchanger, enough carbon monoxide will be released to set off your detectors all around your home. It’s not a common thing that first responders look for should they end up coming to your home. This one is something that you’ll need to constantly monitor, and schedule a tune-up to fix completely.
- Thermostat Issue
While it may not sound like much, your thermostat is what tells your furnace to turn off and on. Most newer systems with electronic ignition systems don’t see this issue, and more commonly, your pilot light may have just gone out. If you see this happening on a regular basis, there could be a deeper-rooted issue with your pilot, which you’ll definitely need to get taken care of. In the event that it is the thermostat that’s broken, you won’t be getting much use out of your furnace until its fixed. This is the opportune time to schedule a quick visit from Ranger to assess the damage, and solve the problem. We’ll make it good as new.
