So, you’re buying 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 anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.
It’s typical for a furnace room to double as a place for additional storage. 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 Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space 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 could 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 guarantee peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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.
