Furnace Installation & Replacement FAQs
- How long does a furnace last?
Typically, a furnace will last from 15 to 20 years from its installation. However, the lifespan of a furnace is usually much less when consistently run without annual maintenance from furnace experts like those from Air Specialties. Some heaters have been known to last over 25 years with proper care, but these instances are relatively rare.
- How long does it take to install a furnace?
A typical furnace installation or replacement service will take from 8 to 10 hours to complete. It all depends on the previous system set-up and what must be accomplished before the system can be installed. If it is a full AC and furnace installation, you can expect about two work days to complete both services.
- What size furnace do I need?
As with most appliances, the right size furnace must correspond with the size of your home. If you are looking to get a furnace installation or replacement service for your home, a good rule of thumb is to purchase a system that will offer you roughly 30 to 45 BTUs of heat for each square foot of your house, depending on the climate.
- What size furnace do I need for a 1000 square foot house?
In more moderate climates, 30 BTUs per square-foot should be an acceptable furnace size, but for colder climates, 40 to 45 BTUs would be more appropriate. In CT and the rest of New England, the best size furnace for a 1500 square-foot home should produce from 60,000 to 67,500 BTUs of heat.

- What size furnace do I need for a 2000 square foot home?
For a 2000 square-foot home in the colder climates of New England, the ideal furnace would produce 80,000 to 90,000 BTUs in total. In more moderate climates, 60,000 BTUs would be appropriate for the installation.
- What size furnace do I need for a 3000 square foot home?
We recommend that homeowners in colder climates should have furnace installations or replacements that produce about 40 to 45 BTUs of heat per square-foot. Therefore, an acceptable unit for a 3000 square-foot home will produce roughly 120,000 to 135,000 BTUs. For areas with more moderate temperatures, 90,000 BTUs should be perfectly fine.
