So, you’re getting 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 presume it to take several hours. To help make it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some 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 double as a place for additional storage. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. technicians will need plenty of room by 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 experts will take extra care to keep your home 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 might 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 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
