What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re getting 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 expect it to take some time. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently 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 normal for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need lots of room around 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 be confident that our experts 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 older 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 maintain 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
