Furnaces are the most common means of heating a home in the United States. Apollo sells superior performance, high-efficiency furnaces made by Amana and Goodman in the Cincinnati area, but…the secret about HVAC that most companies don’t want to talk about: furnace installation is more important than a new heating system's energy rating or brand. Why?
- Heating equipment is part of a home “system” tied into ductwork, piping, air cleaners and other parts of the home.
- It’s not like an appliance that can be taken out of a the box, plug it in and it’s ready to go.
- Installation of heating equipment like furnaces and heat pumps has to be done by a trained and licensed HVAC professional.
- According to Consumer Reports, “In the end, it’s the contractor who will make the biggest difference in how well a furnace replacement goes.”
Here at Apollo our installers are required to attend Apollo University, a comprehensive training program certified by the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Association. This is continuing HVAC training is required to keep up with all the changing technology.
So when buying new home comfort equipment, remember: you’re not just buying the equipment, you’re buying the company behind the equipment too.
