What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Campbell's Tempracure technicians will need lots of room surrounding 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 technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 previous furnace. Plus, now may be the perfect 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 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.
