What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re getting 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 expect it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to act as a place for additional storage. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Assured Appliance and Heating & Air technicians will need sufficient room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
