So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take some time. To help make it go as quickly and easily as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common for a furnace room to double as a storage room. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the H&C Heating and Cooling technicians will need sufficient room surrounding 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 home 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 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 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
