What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

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 expect it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible, there are some things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to serve 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 Ilten's Incorporated technicians will need sufficient 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 rest easy that our professionals will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture located in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you could 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 home 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.
