What Can I Expect During A Furnace Replacement?

November 18, 2021 | Blog

There may be a time where you have no choice but to get a furnace replacement. The process of the replacement may be confusing to follow through, but a trained technician will always be there to help guide you through the process. Here at Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we’re here to explain what you can expect during a furnace replacement.

Sizing and Calculation

First, your technician will do a proper calculation of your home. They need to make sure everything will fit and run correctly in order to see the HVAC system will run smoothly. Your technician will then start the process of getting the size and measurements for your new replacement.

Replace Old Parts

While there is a chance there may only be a few worn-out parts that need to be changed, there is always a chance you need to replace the entire HVAC system. It may also be there is a leakage going on or excessive dust that has worn out the parts. Your technician will use this opportunity to make sure there’s no possibility of defects and fire hazards.

Run a Trial

After installing a new replacement, your technician will run a trial to make sure everything is functioning as it should be. It can take a few tries in order to make sure there’s nothing wrong, or that any of the new parts may need a little more attention. 

During the trial, your technician may go room to room to make sure the air is flowing correctly and heating up the rooms evenly. They also would need to make sure the thermostat and the furnace are connected and can work properly together. 

Explanation of the New System

It’s important for homeowners to fully understand their new systems. After making sure everything is working correctly on multiple trials, your technician should go step by step with you on how the system works, and what to do in the event that you need another repair.

You should also use this opportunity to ask any questions or voice any concerns that you may have about your new unit with your technician. If you happen to have any unanswered questions about your new unit, you can always contact us at Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing for more information. 

Preventative Maintenance

Getting a furnace replacement means a fresh start with a brand new unit. Be sure to treat it with care – the average lifespan of a furnace can last between 20 to 30 years. There are many steps that you as a homeowner can take to elongate the amount of time you have with your new furnace. Below are a few steps you could take to increase the lifespan of your new furnace: 

  • Change your HVAC air filter every 30 days 
  • Make sure there’s nothing blocking your air vents
  • Get a heater tune-up every year
