So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a large 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 it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical 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. Don’t forget that the Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of room around 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 be sure that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 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 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
