So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several 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 act as storage space. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need sufficient room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help protect your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 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 maintain 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
