What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re buying 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 anticipate it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and easily as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you might 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 ensure 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
