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 key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly 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 typical 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. Remember that the Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services technicians will need lots of room by 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 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your indoor space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
