Here they share a tip on why you should contact a qualified and licensed HVAC company:
Sometimes we get called out for quotes and come across some horrible installs. The pictures below are from a customer who chose to go with a competitor because they had a cheaper price. Unfortunately the contractor she used butchered her house and did not do any aspect of the job according to Provincial Code.
The contractor destroyed her wall, used an installation manual to support the venting, used flexible appliance hose for the gas lines, did not re-size the chimney, indirectly vented 2 furnaces and a hot water heater in a closet without adequate combustion air, sold her a couple 2 stage furnaces without upgrading the thermostats to take advantage of the energy savings, ran shark bite fittings and flexible hose to the new hot water heater, failed to provide clearance from the furnaces to the wall for servicing, placed the hot water heater in a place with no access, and even used an orange extension cord to supply power to one of the furnaces. It was by far one of the worst installs we have ever seen. And it was an illegal install. After speaking with the Gas Inspector, we learned that a permit had never been pulled by the contractor.
Fortunately Gibbon was able to help this customer by providing some free work. We also helped her identify the deficiencies and led her to the proper channels to have the problems fixed and resolved.
Please remember to contact a qualified and licensed HVAC company for any and all of your work. We would hate to see this happen to you.
