Natural Gas Dryers
Installation: Step by Step and Simple
After you have ordered your natural gas dryer, you need a certified
Heating Venting and Air Conditioning (HVAC) professional to install it.
Once you have a contractor, you have nothing more to think about.
They'll arrive, extend your natural gas supply to your laundry room,
install the dryer and you'll have years of energy and money savings
ahead. Installation costs between $150-$250, but these costs are
recovered quickly through energy savings. Your retailer may be able to
handle every aspect of your installation including contracting an HVAC
professional. If this service is not offered or you prefer to handle it
yourself, you can easily arrange for installation by taking these steps.
- Find an
HVAC contractor by looking in the yellow pages, asking for
references from neighbours or by visiting the Heating, Refrigeration
and Air Conditioning Institute of
Canada website at
to have at least three HVAC companies come to your home to give you
a full estimate on installing your natural gas dryer
- Ask each
HVAC contractor to supply you with their Technical Standards and
Safety Authority (TSSA) registration number. To confirm this
information call TSSA at 1 800 268-1142
- Ask each
HVAC professional to include in their estimate the full price of
installation included the cost of permits and inspections where
required. Get your estimate in writing including job start,
estimated completion date, number of people who will work on the
job, payment policy, warranties on parts and labour.
- Ask each
HVAC professional you have to your home how long they have been in
business, what the warranty they offer includes and who honours it,
if they are bonded, how much liability insurance they carry and if
they have payment plans. As well, enquire if they have 24 hour
which HVAC professional you feel most comfortable giving the
installation project to. Common sense dictates that the lowest price
is not always your best value. Choose carefully based on the
information provided and references given.
- When you
have chosen an HVAC professional for the job get a written contract
and insist that all parties sign it.
