What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, 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 anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to act as a place for additional storage. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the James Heating & A/C, Inc 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 protect your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 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 maintain peak comfort and keep your house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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.
