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 several hours. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Knoechel Heating 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 keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 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 indoor space 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
