“Can I Have a Furnace Heater In a Mobile Home?”

question-markSpend a short amount of time online and you are bound to see a lot of talk about how great furnaces are for home heating needs. They’re powerful, effective, and pretty efficient. But they aren’t for everyone.

If you are looking for a system to install in your mobile home for heating in Fresno, CA you might be wondering if a furnace is a good choice. We are sorry to say that, in most cases, this won’t be the best option. We’ve encountered some situations in which customers are misinformed about using furnaces in their mobile homes and we want to clear things up because installing an unapproved system is both illegal and dangerous.

Read on to learn more about if and when a furnace is okay for a mobile home and what the required specifications are.

Finding a Mobile Home Approved Furnace

You deserve a good heating system for your mobile home. However, when it comes to the subject of installing a furnace in your mobile home, things get a bit tough. For these types of homes, you need a furnace that is specifically mobile home approved. This is a non-negotiable factor. Here’s what you need to know about getting a furnace for your mobile home.

So why can’t a mobile home enjoy the same type of furnace as any other home? Well, because they aren’t like other homes. The ducts of a mobile home are too small for normal furnaces to use. This means that your system would need a special fan designed to produce the necessary airflow. Installing a furnace that isn’t made to work with the special needs for a mobile home can be a recipe for danger and big trouble too.

A furnace made for a mobile home will need to meet the necessary qualifications to ensure it works effectively and safely:

  • They are made for the year and model of the mobile home.
  • The furnace is made to work with the size of your air ducts, furnace space, and corners of your home.
  • The furnace has a specialized fan to create efficient airflow.
  • The system must be High Static Approved
  • Has to be downflow-oriented.

The standard types of furnaces used in homes throughout the state and the rest of the country don’t meet the specifications that are required for mobile homes. This is one of the many reasons it is so important to work with a professional to select and install a mobile home furnace heating system. Only trained professionals will know exactly what is necessary to meet these specifications.

If you are on the hunt for a new heating system for your mobile home, make sure to work with an expert who knows what you need. You can rely on our team to help you find exactly what you need. We will make sure to pair you with the right type of system that ensures your health, comfort, and safety.
