What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a large 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 a few hours. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are several things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s normal for a furnace room to serve as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, place it a safe distance away for the installation. Don’t forget that the Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning technicians will need plenty of room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will give them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your space clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also smart to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room. You should be aware that you might need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your older furnace. Plus, now is the ideal 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 would like 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.
