So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant 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 several hours. To help make the process 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 very common for a furnace room to double as a storage room. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the McFadden Heating & Cooling technicians will need sufficient room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help protect your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians 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 older 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 home 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.
