So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning 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 are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the B & B Heating & Cooling 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 keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture located 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 may be the perfect 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 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
