So, you’re purchasing 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 expect it to take several hours. To help make it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few 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 are items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Lakeside Heating & Air technicians will need lots of room around 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 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former furnace. Plus, now is a great 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
