So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and easily 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 typical for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Freed Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need lots of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure 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 the ideal 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 house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
