What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a big 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 several hours. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back 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, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Davis Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need lots of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or would like 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
