The Furnace or Heating System That Will Be Best For You
Often the hardest step in the furnace installation process is choosing the right furnace for you. You want to select a furnace that will work well for the space it is located in and that will provide efficient heating to all areas of your home or business. To select a type of furnace and brand, we recommend consulting with one of our professionals who can come to your home and look at the space where your furnace is located. They will then be able to give you an estimate on not only the installation cost, but also some options for best brands and styles to choose from.
Once you have decided on what furnace installation or heating system you want for your home, you must now figure out what size fits your needs the best. A furnace or heating system that is too small will run constantly and may never really get the temperature in your home to a comfortable level for any length of time. This constant cycling on and off is not good for your furnace or heater either. It will cause extra wear and tear and reduce the life of your furnace faster than the normal life. A furnace or heating system that is too big could easily make it uncomfortably hot by producing powerful blasts of hot air and that will not help to keep your indoor environment comfortable. You would also be spending more money than necessary for a larger than required furnace or heating system. At Larsen Heating and Air Conditioning we will make sure you have the right size furnace for your home or office.
How the Furnace Installation Process Works
Once you have selected the right furnace and size for you, the next step is to schedule a time for the installation. Keep in mind that the average furnace installation can take anywhere from 4 to 10 hours to complete. This is because the old furnace must first be removed, which can be a very laborious process due to the many parts and connections that have to be dealt with. Then the area must be prepped, the new furnace reconnected, and a few tests to make sure that it is working correctly. On average the furnace installation time is about 8 hours, and you will want to make sure to schedule it at a time that is most convenient for you and in advance of when you experience a problem if possible. The time to replace the furnace is well before it is on its last leg and breaks in the middle of winter!
As described above, the furnace installation process follows generally three simple steps.
First, professional technicians will need to remove the old furnace including disconnecting the gas line if your furnace is a gas furnace, and making sure that nothing is damaged on the gas line when removing the old furnace. Because of the many connections to the furnace that help it run properly, many underestimate how long removing the old furnace takes. It is much more than a simply unplug and discard, and this step is often the most laborious part of the process.
Once our technicians have removed and disposed of the old furnace, they will then need to prep the area and make sure it is clean of dust and debri so that you have a clean install with your new furnace. We make sure to leave our installations cleaner than we found them! We will then put in the new furnace and reinstall the connections to the new unit including the gas line, electrical supply, vent pipes, the ducting system, the condensation drain and others. Our professional technicians will make sure that all parts and pieces are connected properly to ensure that your furnace is running safely and well.
Lastly, once the installation is complete, we will test the furnace to make sure that everything is working properly. We want to make sure we leave your home with you knowing that you have a brand new furnace working exactly how it should be. We stand behind our work.

DIY vs Professional Furnace Installation: Why You Should Choose the Experts
Many people feel that furnace installation is something they would rather tackle on their own and try and save a few bucks. If you have the knowledge and skills to be able to handle this task effectively, then this may be a good solution for you. However, if you have limited skills in HVAC and heating systems we highly encourage you to visit with a professional before deciding on a DIY installation. Here are three reasons why working with a professional can help you have a better furnace install.
- Better Overall Furnace Efficiency
- Minimize Installation Errors (And Save Time!)
- Brand, Size and Space Recommendations
- Professional Warranties
Furnace installation professionals have years of experience, certification and training in installing furnaces. This experience allows them to be the best in what they do. Choosing to work through an expert is the best way to ensure that your furnace is installed properly and in a way that will maximize energy efficiency and reduce later utility costs.
Using a professional can also save you time and minimize the chance of error during your install. Installing a furnace is already a long process, and making mistakes due to inexperience or not following directions correctly will only add time to your installation and can cause stress and frustration, leading to more errors and a vicious cycle. Furnace installation professionals have the experience to know the common errors in furnace installation and how to avoid them, thus reducing the time needed to install the furnace and getting you back to a comfortable heating level as soon as possible.
Professional furnace installation companies like Larsen Heating and Air can also give you better recommendations on the type of furnace that will be best for your home and space as well as brand recommendations, typical pricing etc. Professional companies also have partnerships that often allow us to get you better pricing than the average seller by choosing to purchase through our company. We can work with your needs and budget and give you a customized quote for your home.
Safety should not be neglected when it comes to furnace installation. If you have the experience and understand the aspects of how the furnace works and the potential hazards, you may be able to install the furnace on your own without any problem. However, nothing is worse than injuring yourself in the furnace installation process simply because you did not fully understand the process or implement it correctly. As with anything, ensuring that you understand the risks involved and how to safely install and operate the furnace, is the safest way to make sure you have a good experience with your install. And if you don’t have that experience, it may be worth the investment to consider just working with a professional.
Lastly, furnace installations through a professional often come with warranties associated with both their product and their installation. Typical warranties on a furnace include a 5 year warranty on parts and functioning. At Larsen, we also offer lifetime warranty on our installation, and if anything goes wrong after we install, we will fix it at no cost to you. Self installations are not covered by any warranty and some product warranties may be void or reduced if they were not installed by a professional.
