So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a big 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 some time. To help make the installation go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating technicians will need sufficient room surrounding 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 professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your indoor space 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
