So, you’re getting 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 expect it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and easily as possible, there are several things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common 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 Precision Mechanical 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 technicians will take extra care to keep your house 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 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
