So, you’re getting 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 some time. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the B & G HVAC technicians will need sufficient room surrounding 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 confident that our professionals 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 may 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
