So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to act as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Home Comfort Heating & Air technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help protect your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former furnace. Plus, now is a great time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help ensure peak comfort and keep your indoor space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
