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 vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Street Heating and Cooling technicians will need sufficient room surrounding 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 technicians will take extra care to keep your home 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 older 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 home 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
