So, you’re buying 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 expect it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical 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. Don’t forget that the Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing technicians will need lots of room by 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 rest easy that our professionals will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 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 ensure 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
