What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take some time. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s typical for a furnace room to act as a storage room. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Hopper Heating and Air technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your home 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
