How Long Does It Take To Install A New HVAC System?

Unfortunately, HVAC systems don't last forever. When you need to have a brand new system installed, it can be helpful to understand how long it's going to take. There are a few factors that go into determining the time frame for a new HVAC system installation.


One factor that is going to impact the timeline for your HVAC system installation is ducting. Some homes already have an HVAC system that uses ducting. If this is your case, then your HVAC professional will not have to waste any time installing new ductwork. If you're installing an HVAC system in your new home, the installation process is going to take longer.  This is also true if you're replacing a system that doesn't need ducting. This is due to the fact that ducting has to be throughout your entire home. That is a time-consuming process that can take a couple of days or more to complete.

Type of System

The type of system you want installed is also going to influence the amount of time it takes. Simple installations, like furnace replacement, an HVAC professional can do in one day. If you want a more complex installation, such as a central air conditioning unit, it can take a couple of days.

Unit Location

Where your unit gets placed is also going to impact the amount of time it takes to install it. For a home that keeps a furnace in the basement or on the first level, HVAC professionals can install them in a day or two. If you live in a high-rise building, like a condo, it may take longer to install your new HVAC system. This is because your HVAC professional will likely need to use a crane to adhere it to the roof.

The Installation Company

Another thing that will affect how long it takes to install your new HVAC system is the company that you choose. Choose a company that specializes in HVAC unit installations. They have the right equipment, knowledge, and appropriate procedures to install your system. Some other contractors don't install HVAC units often and don't have those skills.
