What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, 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 presume it to take some time. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to serve as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. technicians will need lots of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give 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 situated 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 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 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
