What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently 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 double as a place for additional storage. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc technicians will need sufficient room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help guard 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 a good idea to move any furniture located 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 selected 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.
