What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is so important 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 smoothly as possible, there are several things you can do to plan ahead. That way, you’ll be returning to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s typical for a furnace room to double as a storage room. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Keep in mind that the Ilten's Incorporated technicians will need sufficient room around 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 confident 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 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 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 previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
