What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a significant investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is vital 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 plan ahead. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common for a furnace room to double as storage space. 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 Thornberry Bros Inc 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 home 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 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 ensure peak comfort and keep your indoor space 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
