The idea of buying a used furnace is an appealing option for anyone who doesn’t want to spend money on a brand-new unit. However, a used furnace often ends up being more trouble than it is worth. Let’s look at some reasons why used furnaces aren’t ideal.

Potential Safety Hazard

You can’t test drive a furnace. You will either need a lot of HVAC knowledge or a licensed professional to perform quality checks. Most sellers usually do not keep up with performance or maintenance reports. Many internal and external safety hazards could also go unnoticed when purchasing a used furnace. Furthermore, used units most likely won’t come with a warranty, which could mean more repair costs out of your pocket.

Installation Issues

Furnaces purchased from a private seller are not furnaces that HVAC companies can trust. They don’t typically come with the appropriate history documentation that contractors need for installation or repairs. This makes contractors wary because of potential liabilities and they may refuse to serve you. The most prevalent safety hazards are due to poor operation or installation and is not something you should attempt to do yourself.

Your Furnace May Not Pass Inspection

Gas companies and licensed professionals are legally obligated to mark furnaces with a red tag if they are considered unsafe. If your furnace gets a red tag, you must replace or repair the unit immediately. It is important that whatever unit you go with passes inspection so that warranties remain intact.

Five-Star Customer Reviews

Evans Mechanical is an excellent service committed to customer satisfaction and guaranteed quality workmanship. Our water heater burst and they were very responsive. They sent a technician out the same day and it was determined the heater was beyond repair.

Excellent service from start to finish. Joe came out to give us an estimate on what we would need for a new furnace, never pressured us to buy the top of their line just giving us options on what we would need for our home. Then the date set for installation Thomas and Ryan came out on time and did a great job.

All three technicians worked well together. They treated each other kindly and were thoughtful and courteous with me. They did a final and complete cleanup after the installment of my new heater. They were respectful of my home. I’m grateful I used this company.
