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 vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take a few hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and smoothly 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 very common for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Gilray Heating and Cooling technicians will need plenty of room by 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 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 could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
