Hyde-Whipp has been installing furnaces since 1983, helping us to become intricately acquainted and knowledgeable about a wide number of home heating solutions. Consumers, on the other hand, are far less experienced in the various differences between types of furnaces, and other home heating solutions, available to them. Because we think every customer should have a basic understanding of how their home is heated, we want to cover the basics of gas & propane furnaces, their installation, and their regular upkeep.

The Propane & Gas Furnace Installation Process

Gas furnace installation might seem straightforward, but the intricate attention that must be paid to detail means it's strictly the work of a well-trained professional. Before the unit can even be installed, our service technicians will have to install duct work to ensure that the heat can get to each room of the home; if duct work is already installed, we'll check it for integrity, leaks or other faults that may reduce the efficiency of your unit.
After this, the unit can be installed. It will be connected to a power source (perhaps the easiest part of the entire process) and then it will be connected to the home's natural gas or propane gas line. This line is typically installed by a propane tank installer, or by your local natural gas utility company during the construction of your home. The connection to the furnace must be done by a professional to ensure that there are no leaks between the line itself and the furnace. Any leak will result in gas being allowed into the home; that can result in fires and explosions; an all-too-common occurrence in homes where a poor installation has been performed.
Because of the intricate nature of furnace installation, it's important to let one of our professional installers ensure the system is operating soundly and efficiently.
Ongoing Furnace Repair & Maintenance: Keeping the Unit in Working Order and Avoiding Furnace Repair
"Contact us for all Your Repair & Maintenance Needs"
Furnace installation isn't the end of the process, but merely the beginning. Once the unit has been installed, it's time to start thinking about furnace maintenance which will enhance and extend the unit's longevity and efficiency.
Multi-point inspections include:
- Gas pressures
- Temperature rise
- Combustion analysis
- Check air filter
Furnace maintenance should always be done by a professional. This helps avoid any accidental damage to any of the unit's internal parts, as well as ensures that the work is done to the highest standard in order for the furnace to be in top working shape. And it protects the furnace owner from any accidental injury that may result from doing these tasks alone.
Even with regular maintenance, however, furnace repair may be necessary. In these instances, it's important to call a Hyde-Whipp professional to examine, diagnose, and repair any problem which is preventing your furnace from keeping your home warm in an efficient and effective way. This process is often quite involved and requires an in-depth knowledge of the unit, meaning that furnace repair is strictly the work of a home heating and cooling professional.
Don't Take Chances with Home Heating
While many customers may try to save costs by skipping the professional installation that any furnace requires, it's important to remember that this short-term savings may result in long-term costs: inefficient home heating, damage to the furnace itself, and even damage to the home if the installation is not performed in the right way. When performing any furnace installation or furnace maintenance, be sure to have a professional in your home to ensure the task is completed successfully.
