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.
