Installation Quality – Startup and Setup


Today’s equipment is very advanced with highly sophisticated electronics to customize each system to your home. The control boards have many different switches that need to be adjusted to meet the specific needs of your home. Additionally, the equipment must be started up and tested to make sure it is operating exactly as specified. Without this setup, the unit efficiency will suffer and the unit will wear out prematurely. Please see this startup sheet below that the technician must record all the details of the unit operation for a modulating gas furnace. Ask your contractor for a copy of his startup sheet. If he/she cannot show you their startup sheet, they are probably not setting up the equipment properly. When you are investing thousands of dollars for 95% efficient equipment that should last 15 years, you don’t want your equipment running at 90% and only last 10 years. A proper setup will deliver the results you expect and deserve.
