What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a big 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 installation go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Mitchell Heating technicians will need lots of room surrounding 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 rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture situated 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 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 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
