So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. 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’s anything near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Total Comfort technicians will need lots of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
