What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant 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 a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s typical for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning 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 guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you could 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 maintain 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.
