If you’re lucky, you won’t need a new HVAC system or unit installed very often while you own your home. For one, it can be a hassle. And, because it’s a rare hassle, few people know or remember what they are in for when it comes time to get a major installation.  

Preparation is the key to success. So, here are some things to expect during your HVAC installation. 

1. How Much Does It Cost to Install New HVAC? 

Of all the things to know about your new HVAC system, the cost is the most important. No one wants to be surprised with a huge bill. Your HVAC company should provide you with a clear estimate in advance. The price will entirely depend on what you need to buy and what kind of work is needed to install it. Major pieces of the system, like the furnace, cost more than minor pieces, like whole home humidifiers. Plus, the tougher something is to install, the more you will be charged in labour costs. 

What if the cost of a new system is too much for you? Be honest with your HVAC company about your budget, and they’ll help you. They want you to be able to afford what you need too. There may be grants or loans you can take advantage of. Your bank may offer lines of credit that could help. Or, you could work with a financing company. 

At D&B ClimateCare, we want to ensure you are comfortable in your home all year long, so we offer a rent to own program through CLARITY by ClimateCare. Learn more about CLARITY and how you can use it to help with your furnace, AC, water heater or water softener installation.  

2. How Long Does HVAC Installation Take? 

While the time to install will vary based on the equipment you’re getting, you should be prepared for your HVAC technician to be in your home for hours. They need to remove old equipment, run vents or lines, install the new machinery, and then test that it is operational. Once they have looked at your home and where your equipment will go, your HVAC technician should be able to estimate how long things will take. But, they do need to look at your home first. Sometimes staircases, attic spaces, basement layouts, missing gas or plumbing lines, or other issues do add significant time to your installation.

3. How to Prepare for HVAC Installation 

There are a few other things you should know about in order to prepare for your HVAC installation. They include: 

  • Make sure someone is home or your house is accessible for your contractors. 
  • Clear a path from your front door down to where the equipment will be installed. 
  • Lock up pets and keep young children away from the door and the contractor’s work area. 
  • Learn about the maintenance needs of the system ahead of time.
