What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a big 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 some time. To help make the installation go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common 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 B & B Heating & Cooling technicians will need sufficient room around 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 house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture situated in the path to the furnace room. You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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.
