What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common for a furnace room to act as a storage room. 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 Schagrin Gas Company technicians will need sufficient 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 technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your indoor space 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.
