P. Gagnon & Son: The smart choice for heating system installation

If you’re a Southern Maine or Seacoast, NH homeowner looking to replace home heating equipment, the prospect can be pretty daunting: with so many choices for types of heating systems, brands, and models, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by options.

But the truth is that as challenging as choosing a heating system can be, you can make the process much easier by following one simple bit of advice from day 1: find the right heating contractor.

What does “right” mean, in this context? At the minimum, any heating contractor worth considering should:

  • Be licensed and bonded (insured)
  • Be experienced and highly trained/certified
  • Provide customer recommendations and testimonials
  • Provide a detailed, written estimate before work starts
  • Provide at least a one-year warranty on their work

Most importantly, a heating contractor should help you feel like you’re in good, trusted hands, so that you know that when they make recommendations they have your best interest – and not their own – at heart.

You will get all this and more when you become a P. Gagnon & Son customer.

The importance of proper heating system installation

The good news if you’re planning to install a new heating system is that you are likely to notice a significant lowering of your monthly energy bills, considering that the efficiency on modern gas furnaces can reach 98 percent or more (into the high 80s for heating oil-fired furnaces and boilers).

The not so good news is that you will only see those improvements if your equipment is chosen and installed properly.

That’s why installing a new heating system is a job for trained heating professionals – not handymen or small-time contractors. A seasoned pro will know how to size a heating system to your space (it’s much more than a square foot calculation), how to safely connect it to avoid ventilation problems, and how to integrate your heating equipment with your ductwork so that efficiency is maximized, among other things. Choose an inexperienced contractor and you could lose much more than a few dollars on a heating bill: poorly installed systems can pose deadly risks of fire, carbon monoxide poisoning and other dangers.

The bottom line

Proper, high-quality heating installation isn’t cheap – but it is an investment that will keep your family comfortable and safe for years to come while helping you save money on your monthly bills.
