So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a significant 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 several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s very common for a furnace room to act as storage space. 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 Dave's Diversified Services technicians will need sufficient room surrounding 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 rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your house 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 former furnace. Plus, now is a great 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 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.
