So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take several hours. To help make it go as quickly and efficiently 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 very common 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. Keep in mind that the MPC Heating & Cooling technicians will need plenty of room surrounding 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 house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea 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 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 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 get some touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your other thermostat to clean up your wall.
