What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, 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 a few hours. To help make it go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning 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, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Olde Towne Heating & Air technicians will need lots of room around 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 rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your house 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 may 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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.
