How Long Does It Take to Install a New Furnace?
TechXpert verified by Ken Kontra
Installing a new furnace can take four to 10 hours. One day’s work can keep you comfy for the next 15 years. You can expect most HVAC professionals to have your new furnace installed in under a day, which is worth it to stay warm and happy once winter rolls around.
Help Prep the Pro
If you want the installation to be quick and smooth, it might be helpful to prepare a few things before your hired HVAC technicians arrive to install your furnace. Here’s where you can start:
Clear a pathway to the furnace
Make your home areas accessible (clear away clutter that could be an obstacle)
Prepare any questions you have about the installation (anything that’s on your mind? This is the time to clear the air!)
You can make your furnace installation process easier by helping those who are coming to help you. Your HVAC technicians are there to answer any questions you may have (they’ve got a lot of experience in this work) and to do whatever they can to make sure your installation is a success. So, don’t be afraid to nerd out about your new furnace.
All in a Day’s Work
While installing your furnace may take longer than other jobs around the house, it’s worth the day’s work so that once temperatures start to drop, you can rely on a system that will keep you warm!
