So, you’re purchasing 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 a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are some things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Brandon Heating and Plumbing technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow 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 space 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 older 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
