What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying 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 anticipate it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily 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 normal for a furnace room to act as a place for additional storage. 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 1st Choice Service Group Inc technicians will need sufficient 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 professionals will take extra care to keep your home 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former 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 ensure 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
