So, you’re purchasing 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 expect it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common for a furnace room to act as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical technicians will need sufficient room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help protect your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
