Furnace Installation – Complete Replacement Services
Nothing will last longer in your home than a professionally installed furnace or other types of central air unit. Installation is crucial when it comes to the longevity of your system, and the protection of your investment.
Fresno residents rarely think about their heating service, until those rare nights when it’s a blessing. Most of the time, our AC units dominate our thoughts. The air handler is actually moving air through the system year-round, the silent hero we all love. Yet, a strong heating unit can make your house more comfortable all year-round too.
Cars, air conditioners, dishwashers, and refrigerators break down after years and years of continued use, which is typical for any machine. When the time comes for furnace installation, where do you look for an expert?
When You Need A Furnace Replacement
As the saying goes, “nothing lasts forever”. Regardless of how much we take care of our heating system (or the lack of care at all), it has a limited lifespan. When it reaches a certain age, signs of wear occur that normally lead to repairs. It can be an expensive repair job too. The first time it happens, it can be considered part of the systems maintenance. However, if the malfunctions and breakdowns periodically happen and maintenance gets more expensive, then a new unit installation can be more beneficial. Here’s why…

The Best Technicians and Contractors
Q: Is it possible to install a furnace on a single stage AC unit?
A: Typically, yes. Installing a high efficiency variable speed (or modulating) furnace is possible when the air conditioner is updated also. This way, the efficiency of the complete unit is increased and can be set to be fully variable and communicative.
Q: Which is the most efficient home furnace replacement?
A: Generally speaking, newer is more efficient. We measure this efficiency in %AFUE. Let’s take an 80% AFUE rating for example… What the ratings indicate is that for every $1 dollar spent on gas, 80% is converted directly to heat. There are systems that get up to 97%. Higher efficiency will cost more upfront, but utility bills will be less over the years.
Q: What is the lifespan of a heating system?
A: Some we’ve seen go as long as 20 years. Properly maintained units stand the best chance of lasting, also your typical usage will dramatically impact the lifespan. 10-15 years lifespan is typical of any unit.
