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 so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take a few hours. 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 very common for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need lots of room by 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 rest easy that our technicians 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 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 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
