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 so important to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make the installation go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, transfer it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the MPC Heating & Cooling technicians will need lots of room around 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 confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your house 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 may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous 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 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 have touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your original thermostat to clean up your wall.
