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 anticipate it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few 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’s anything near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Lycoming Heating Company technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our technicians 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 could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older 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 indoor space 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 find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
