What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services 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 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 situated in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former furnace. Plus, now may be the perfect 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
