What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. 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. Remember that the Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
