What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing 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 expect it to take several hours. To help make it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s typical for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Davis Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your house 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 former 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 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.
