What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re buying 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 installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to act as a place for additional storage. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Farris Heating & Air technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give 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 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 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your house 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
