What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a big 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 smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to act as a storage room. 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 McCune Heating & Cooling technicians will need plenty of room around 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 professionals will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture situated 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 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 maintain peak comfort and keep your house 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
