It’s normal for a furnace room to double as a place for additional storage. 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 Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need lots of room by 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 rest easy that our professionals will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 may be the perfect 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 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.
