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 vital to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are some things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common for a furnace room to act as a storage room. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the McNatt Inc technicians will need plenty of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our technicians will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 older furnace. Plus, now is the ideal 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 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.
