So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key 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 a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Phelps Heating & Cooling technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy 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 that’s in the path to the furnace room.
You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous furnace. Plus, now is a great 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 would like a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
