What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large 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 easily as possible, there are a few 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 storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Anderson Heating & A/C technicians will need sufficient room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home 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 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 would like a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
