What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take some time. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting 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’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture situated in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you could 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 would like 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.
