How Long Does It Usually Take to Replace a Furnace?
If you’re thinking about upgrading your old furnace, you’re probably wondering how long it will take to install it. If you’re worried about not having heat while the installation is in progress, the good news is that most replacements won’t take more than a day. On average, home heating companies can complete the installation in about four to eight hours, depending on the size of your house.
How Complex Is the Project?
As mentioned previously, replacing your furnace shouldn’t take longer than a few hours as long as your ductwork is in good shape. If your ductwork needs to be replaced as well, then you can expect the job to last a little longer. Additionally, you may need to account for electrical or gas line modifications to properly match your new equipment.
Needless to say, the complexity of your chosen unit is also a factor, with more complex heating systems taking longer than basic ones. Heating and air conditioning companies will do an inspection before getting started and give you an estimate of the time it will take to have your new furnace up and running so you know exactly what to expect.
Consider the Size of Your House
The size of your house should determine the size of your brand-new furnace. Many homeowners make the mistake of getting one that’s too small, thinking it might save them money. This is a huge mistake. An undersized furnace will likely wear out faster due to overexertion. Similarly, a furnace that’s too big will heat up your house too quickly and then shut off just as fast, resulting in an inefficient heating system.

We had our AC go out on one of the hottest days of the year. We called as soon as they opened and they came out so quickly and offered us some loaner units to keep our babies and animals cool in the meantime. Matt was so helpful and fixed the problem quickly. He went above and beyond to help us and we will be using Stone Heating and Air to replace our unit when it’s time. They’ll be our first call in the future!
Matt's response was extremely quick, he was very professional and friendly. He explained everything in detail and was very knowledgeable. He had my unit up and running within no time! I highly recommend calling stone heating and air. I will be signing up for the yearly service plan with them!!
