What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take several hours. To help make it 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 typical for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Lanz Furnace and Fireplace technicians will need sufficient room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your former furnace. Plus, now may be the perfect time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help guarantee peak comfort and keep your home 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 original thermostat to clean up your wall.
