So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and easily as possible, there are several things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Patterson & Stirling Inc technicians will need plenty of 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 sure 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 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 previous furnace. Plus, now is the ideal 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 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
