So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant 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 it go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are some things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Forster Heating technicians will need plenty of room by 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 be sure that our professionals will take extra care to keep your home 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
