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 key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take some time. To help make the process 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 typical for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. 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 lots 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 confident that our professionals will take extra care to keep your house 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 may 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 maintain 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
