How Long Does It Take for a New Furnace To Be Installed?
September 20, 2022 at 6:00 PM

Anyone that's been living without a furnace is probably eager to get one installed as soon as possible. Furnaces are one of the most popular heating methods in the country — and for good reason. They're reliable and highly effective, assuming they've been installed properly. So, just how long does a furnace installation take?

The Furnace Installation Process

A new furnace installation takes approximately 4 to 6 hours. The amount of time required to complete the installation will depend on a few factors. The most important factor of all is the experience level of the person installing it. Furnaces have a lot of individual parts and can be quite complex, so it's best to hire professional HVAC technicians for the job.

The time needed to install a furnace will also vary depending on the size and make of the furnace, as well as the overall complexity of the job. For example, extra time may be needed for ductwork, gas line, or electrical modifications. Some furnaces are simply easier to install than others. There are natural gas, propane gas, electric, and fuel oil furnaces — all of which have their own installation requirements. 

Can the Installation Process Be Shortened?

In most situations, the customer has no control over how long the installation will take. There are minor ways, however, to speed up the installation process slightly. The best thing a customer can do to shorten the installation time, outside of hiring a professional, is to clean the area where they want the furnace installed. The spot, whether it be in a basement, attic, or utility closet, should be emptied out and relatively well-lit if possible.
