What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning 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, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Colvin's Heating and Cooling technicians will need lots of room around 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 rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 older 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 home 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
