What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re getting 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 anticipate it to take some time. 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 back 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 is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Forster Heating technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
