What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make it 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 normal for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there’s anything near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of 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 be sure that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room. You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
