So, you’re purchasing 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 expect it to take a few hours. To help make it go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common 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. Keep in mind 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 keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our experts will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 maintain peak comfort and keep your house 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
