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 so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take several hours. To help make it go as quickly and easily 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 normal for a furnace room to act as storage space. 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 Scott Temperature technicians will need sufficient room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help protect your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture that’s 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 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 maintain peak comfort and keep your home 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
