After the heat goes on, when can we put kitchen and furniture in.

We've been told so many different timeframes and it's hard to find any info via a Google search.

Our kitchen guy said heat needs to be on 8 weeks minimum but our contractor says 3-4 weeks? Anyone able to advise us as we don't want to risk ruining our stuff.

    Say what? I have no idea what you're asking. Nearly everyone moves in the day the house is done. – isherwood Jan 10 '18 at 19:32
  • I also have never heard anything like this. Once the paint is dry and you have the keys move in. – Ed Beal Jan 10 '18 at 19:36
  • Sorry, im using my phone and accidentally deleted part of the question. We have a kitchen and furniture on order and they say heat needs to be on but mixed advice is confusing us – Fony Tinlay Jan 10 '18 at 19:38
  • Well, sure. Wood furniture shouldn't be subjected to temperature and humidity extremes. Other than that, go nuts. – isherwood Jan 10 '18 at 19:40
  • I've installed a humidity sensor, I'm assuming if we can get this averaging at least 50% humidity at 21° celcius we should be safe enough? This is all because our rental contract is up at the end of this month so we need to move in as soon as possible. – Fony Tinlay Jan 10 '18 at 19:43
