We will begin the furnace replacementby powering down the energy source to your old furnace before removing it.
When connecting the new furnace,we will use mastic to seal all of the joints. Foil tape is another option.
We will then connect the flexible air ducts to the supply plenum and the return plenum. These plenums are rectangular metal boxes where the duct connects to the air handler. This step is important because we want to make sure that the air duct does not get bent, or else it will greatly reduce the air flow.
An overflow pan is recommended under the air handlers. From this pan, we will extend a 3/4-inchdrainpipe to a visible location outdoors.
Since your new unit will be more energy efficient, you will want to consider replacing old circuit breakers as well. Your new furnace will use energy differently, and in order to avoid blowing a circuit after the furnace replacement is complete, you will want to make sure your circuit breaker is able to handle the new installation.
This might be a good time to invest in efficient circuit breakers that have smaller ratings. Make sure to optimize energy usage by installing a furnace that is the right size for your home.
Furnace replacement can be a grueling job if you are trying to do it yourself. The wisest thing to do is to bring in a trained heating professional to handle the work for you. This way, you can be confident the job will be completed correctly with no sweat off your back, and hopefully you won’t have think about another furnace replacement for twenty more years!
Good furnaces and heat pump air handlers have an average lifespan of twenty years, but every once in a while a furnace may break down sooner than expected, generally due to poor maintenance or a defect in the model. A replacement is the most convenient way to be rid of a malfunctioning unit that requires extensive repair, while moving on to a more modern, efficient heating system.
