Hot water for a new heating system

I’m getting a new heating system installed tomorrow because mine died after 27 years. I’m just curious if I need to clean the new system thoroughly before I take a shower as I don’t want any dirt/muck etc. coming out of the shower since it’s a brand new system

    The heating water and your shower water are completely (should be) separated by a heat exchanger of some design.

    Though after any plumbing it is best to rinse your hot and cold lines. This is easiest done by running water out of the tub spout as it has no aerator. This usually clears enough of the little piping you may have had changed.
