So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take a few hours. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently 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 serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc technicians will need sufficient room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep 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 wise to move any furniture situated in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
