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 expect it to take a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to double as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Patterson & Stirling Inc technicians will need sufficient 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 technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture located 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 indoor space 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
