What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, 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 some time. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc technicians will need lots of room surrounding 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 confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture located 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 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 indoor space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
