What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a big 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 several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical 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. Keep in mind that the Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. technicians will need lots of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help protect 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 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 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.
