What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important 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 easily 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 normal for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place 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 provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 older furnace. Plus, now may be the perfect 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
