Furnace Installation

Are you building a new home or installing a furnace for the first time? There are so many options when it comes to choosing a furnace, from the energy efficiency to the size and price, so you need to know what you’re looking for! At James A. Wheat & Sons, we can help you select a furnace that is right for your home and your budget and provide you with a quality installation. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!

Electric Furnace Installation

Electric furnaces can be slow to heat, but they offer a fuel utilization-efficiency rating of 100% to gas’s 55% to 97%. Electrical products can produce duct heat losses, but they can serve you well if your house is well insulated. Propane and oil can be difficult to source and store, and this is where electric heat truly excels. Your unit can be turned on with the flip of a switch and operates more quietly and safely than gas alternatives. Electric furnace maintenance is surprisingly easy.

Gas Furnace Installation

If you’re looking for pocket-friendly running costs, gas furnaces are hard to beat. Natural fuels are cheaper than electricity, so they’re the product of choice in chilly climates. If you tend to use your heater often, gas might be the only fuel you can afford, but its benefits reach far beyond cheap running costs. Gas heats a home faster than electric, and today’s products can compete with electric heat’s fuel-utilization-efficiency rating. James A. Wheat and Sons will help you to find the most efficient gas furnace for your pocket. Our team offers end-to-end solutions that cover everything from installation to maintenance and gas furnace repairs.

Furnace Maintenance

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I replace my furnace's air filter?

Every furnace has its own maintenance requirements. If you’re working with standard filters, you should replace them every two or three months. If your filter is 4 or 5 inches thick, it only needs to be replaced twice a year. Dusty environments require a tighter replacement frequency, though.

Is a programmable thermostat worth the effort?

A programmable thermostat can help you to reduce your cooling costs by shutting down when you’re not at home. Today’s smart thermostats can even be operated from your phone, so you can turn your furnace on when the temperature drops below freezing, no matter how far you are from home. This way, you can prevent frozen pipes without even walking through your front door. Smart thermostats can also give you energy tracking reports so you can target inefficiencies before they cost you a fortune in utility bills.

Can I use a PVC pipe with my furnace?

High-efficiency furnaces have reduced vent temperatures, so they can rely on ABS, PVC, or CPVC piping. Their two-stage combustion process needs very little heat. However, if your gas furnace has an efficiency rating of less than 90%, you’ll need to use metal piping.
