So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical for a furnace room to double as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Clean Air HVAC technicians will need plenty of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older furnace. Plus, now is the ideal time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help maintain peak comfort and keep your home 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
