What to Expect from a Furnace Replacement

Family enjoying indoor heatingIt is time to replace your furnace in your Downers Grove, IL area home. You have tried to repair the old unit for the last time and would rather enjoy your home instead of always worrying about the heat. The technicians at Fire “N’ Ice Heating and Cooling Inc. are here to make this important repair as easy on you as possible. Here are a few things to expect on the big day.

Ordering the Right Unit for Your Home

Before we get down to replacing your furnace, we need to make sure we are ordering the correct one for your home. We will complete a heating survey and match the output of a new furnace to the size of your home while taking into account its insulating factors. We will try to source the new unit as quickly as possible, but if you are replacing in the summer we can take extra time to get the perfect fit.

Expect it to Take a Day

If we are just removing an old unit and popping the same model in place, it could take as little as 4 hours. However, if you need any adjustments to your pipes, electrical, or ducting, it might take 10 hours or so from start to end. If we are doing the work in the middle of the winter, you might want to eat out and spend the day with friends.

Replacing or Upgrading Makes a Difference

While even simply buying the same size and model of furnace is easy, it’s not always the best choice. New high-efficiency furnaces can end up saving you hundreds or thousands on your heating bill every year. However, there is more work to be done when installing an upgraded heating system. We will need to move the exhaust pipe, and run new piping and wires to the new location. We may also need to add ducting for better flow.
