There are numerous steps involved in installing a new heating system in your home, starting with deciding which unit is the best fit for your needs. As with any complicated process, there are multiple pitfalls to avoid along the way. We’ll look at three specific ones in this post.

Incorrect sizing of the heater
A heating system cannot be too large or too small for the space it is supposed to warm. A heat load calculation (which requires a technician to perform) will determine how much heat your house needs in order to keep you comfortable. Without this knowledge, it’s likely you’ll either have a heater that is too small (running constantly) or too large (turning on and off continually)—both situations which will lead to your heater prematurely breaking down.
Miscalibrated or incorrectly connected thermostat
The thermostat is a physically small component of your heating system, but it’s a giant as far as its importance. If a thermostat gets installed poorly, it will affect the whole system. If miscalibrated, the thermostat will read the wrong temperature in your house and turn the heater on and off at the wrong times. A poor connection between the thermostat and the heater will also threaten to make your heating inefficient and inadequate.
We can’t emphasize this point enough: heating installation requires hiring licensed professionals. Having amateurs handle installation will lead to numerous problems. Poor connections to ducts, leaks in valves, poor soldering, and ineffective wiring are just a few of the troubles that can result from having a non-professional install a complex heating system. This will not only lead to poor heating performance and repair needs, but it can also be dangerous due to the risk of electrical fires or gas leaks.
