How Long Does A Furnace Installation Take?

So, you finally decided to invest in an upgraded heating system. The decision to replace your furnace sometimes isn’t easy, and the last thing you need is a lengthy and problematic installation process in your home. No matter if your furnace replacement is happening in the spring or the middle of winter, you need to know how long your installation is going to last.

Here at KCA Services, we want to make your entire heater installation experience fantastic. As a trustworthy Boerne HVAC company, we know how to communicate with our customers effectively and ensure the system is installed correctly. We also want you to know all the factors that affect the timeline of your furnace replacement. 

Required Materials

The length of your heating project often depends on the parts your technician needs to complete the job. Are they available immediately or do they need to be ordered and delivered? This especially comes into play when you are upgrading to specialty materials or high-efficiency brands that involve technological components. Keep in mind that shipping times to get the right parts for your system can extend your installation timeline. More complicated systems might also require higher attention to detail, extending your timeline as well. It’s best to ask your contractor about these things ahead of time and be prepared to have patience.

Project Size

There are many installation projects for your heating system that range from small additions to complete replacements. The bigger the scope of your project, the longer it is likely to take to complete. For example, if just your furnace or heating unit needs to be replaced, the installers can pinpoint how long that action will take. However, if your entire duct system needs to be replaced as well, you’re looking at a more involved and lengthy project. This is a common reason why homeowners are left wondering, “Why does it cost so much to install a furnace?” There are more components to an efficient heating system than just the unit itself!

Go through the details of your furnace installation with your contractor to be clear on what your project involves and the estimated time it will take.


Another thing to consider during your heater installation is the season you are having the work done in. Firstly, the weather can affect your project timeline significantly. While our technicians here at KCA are very experienced and attempt to work around poor weather, it will still likely take longer than expected if a rainstorm or cold front blows in. 

The seasons of the year also indicate how busy HVAC companies are. It’s best to start installation projects the season before you’ll need the use of that system. For your furnace, late summer or fall is the best time to have a furnace replacement done. Technicians and installers will have ample time to dedicate to your service, and you’ll be prepared to combat those chilly cool fronts when they arrive.
