What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed

So, you’re buying a new furnace. It may be a significant 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 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 returning to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s typical for a furnace room to serve as a place for additional storage. So, if there is items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the Honke Heating & AC technicians will need plenty of room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can be confident that our technicians will take extra care to keep your house 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 previous 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 home 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.
