What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing 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 a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few 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 double as a place for additional storage. 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 Freed Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need lots of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our technicians 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your home 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
