What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying 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 expect it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. technicians will need sufficient room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our professionals will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart 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 ensure 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
