What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back 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, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Service Plus Mechanical 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 professionals will take extra care to keep your house 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 might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
