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 expect it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical 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 WM J Kraus & Son technicians will need plenty of room by 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 rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise 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 previous 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 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
