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 so important 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 easily as possible, there are several things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s typical for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC technicians will need plenty of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help protect your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older furnace. Plus, now is a great 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 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
