So, 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 anticipate it to take a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical for a furnace room to double as a storage room. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Northern Comfort Inc technicians will need plenty of 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 sure that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space 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 might 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 ensure 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
