Furnace Installation

Your furnace works hard to warm up every room in your home. When it’s running properly, you may even forget it’s there, tucked away behind the scenes. But like all things that work hard, your furnace starts to break down with age.

Time to Replace Your Furnace

What are the warning signs? Well, you may find your furnace cycles more often than it used to, maybe it sounds louder, or perhaps your energy bills have climbed higher. It’s normal to replace your furnace every 15 years or so. By this age, the cost of a repair is often not worth it, when you consider what you’ll pay for future repairs and utility costs.

Signs it’s time for a new furnace

When your furnace starts to break down, it will probably start to act up, indicating that it’s time for a replacement. Look out for the following signs:

  • Heat exchanger is cracked

  • Furnace is noisy

  • Furnace breaks frequently

  • Furnace is aging (older than 15 years)

How Does a Furnace Replacement or Installation Work?

Get an assessment of your furnace

An HVAC specialist will assess your hom — the size of your house, the ductwork, and your current system — to find out what options are best for you.

Review the furnace estimate with the specialist

You’ll be quoted based on the type and size of the furnace. You have options, so don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Install your furnace

An HVAC technician will come to your house to install your new furnace. This typically takes upwards of eight hours, over the course of one to three days, depending on the service provider, their schedule, and how elaborate the job is.
