So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large 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 it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning technicians will need sufficient room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our experts will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea to move any furniture situated 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 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 want 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
