What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re getting 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 presume it to take a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to act as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services technicians will need plenty of room around 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 confident that our experts will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 older 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 house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
