Seldom do we plan to rely on something for a longer period of time, or with greater consequence if it doesn’t perform, than a furnace, boiler, or air conditioner. When was the last time you purchased something that you planned to use for 20 years or more? When making a decision about what company to hire, or what type of equipment to purchase, there are a lot of variables you should consider.
Comparing a furnace or air conditioner to a conventional appliance like a washing machine or refrigerator is unfair at best. Your home’s heating and cooling system is complex, and must be assembled, adjusted and designed according to the needs of the building and the desires of its occupants. This relies heavily on the technician to fine tune and properly set up your system. Improper design and installation can cut the lifespan of your equipment in half!
Never assume that two furnaces or air conditioners are alike, even if they are the same brand. To assume that two contractors who carry the same brand are offering the same product is comparable to assuming that lumber purchased from one common supplier will yield the same piece of furniture in the hands of a skilled craftsman as it would in the hands of a novice. The equipment is important, but the installation itself is a much larger factor in the durability and lifespan of the unit.
