So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a large 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 efficiently as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common for a furnace room to act as storage space. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. technicians will need lots of room around 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 home 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 might 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 house 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
