What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. 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’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Olde Towne Heating & Air technicians will need sufficient room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide 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 house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
