What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying 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 easily as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to act 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. Don’t forget that the Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. technicians will need sufficient room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
