So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical for a furnace room to act as a place for additional storage. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning 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 protect your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our experts will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 older 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 guarantee 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
