So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect 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 get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s normal for a furnace room to double 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. Remember that the PWA Heating & Cooling Inc 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 confident 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older furnace. Plus, now is the ideal time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help guarantee 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
