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 expect it to take several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Jett's Heating & Air Inc. technicians will need plenty of room by 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 space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected 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.
