What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant 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 efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Gillman Heating and Air technicians will need lots of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space 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 could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 maintain 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
