What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying 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 expect it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common for a furnace room to act as a place for additional storage. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow 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 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 could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
