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 key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can expect it to take some time. To help make it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are some things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to double 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. Don’t forget that the Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc technicians will need lots of room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our professionals will take extra care to keep your space 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 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 indoor space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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 other thermostat to clean up your wall.
