What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take some time. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently 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 typical for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. technicians will need sufficient room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident 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 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 older 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 ensure 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
