What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re getting 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 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 prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the AW Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of room by 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 space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 maintain peak comfort and keep your house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
