What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large 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 several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few 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 a storage room. 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 lots of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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.
