What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re getting 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 some time. 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 serve as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Lycoming Heating Company technicians will need plenty of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you might 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 house at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
