Replacing a furnace is a big job that can take several hours. Technicians will need easy access to the area and a clear space to work. This may also involve the installation of a new thermostat, depending on the age and model of the existing furnace.
A homeowner in Amherst, NH recently contacted us with questions about her upcoming furnace replacement. She was concerned about what to expect throughout the installation process.
A Little Prep Can Make the Work Go Easier and Faster
In general, a home’s furnace is kept in a small enclosed space, such as a basement closet or under the staircase. This can add an extra challenge for the installation technicians as they may find their ability to move around restricted. While used to working in these small spaces, it is very helpful when the homeowner clears their belongings from the area prior to the installation day. This includes any furniture that may be blocking the path.
Taking the time to move these items will not only ensure that your belongings are not damaged during the process, but it will also help to speed up the entire installation.
Installing a New Thermostat
For an older furnace, you may need to upgrade the thermostat. This is a great time to take advantage of all of the amenities that a smart thermostat can offer, including remote access from a tablet or smart phone. While no prep work will be needed by the homeowner to prepare for this, because thermostats come in different shapes and sizes some painting touch-up may be necessary after the installation.
The Amherst homeowner took our advice, clearing her belongings from the furnace area prior to installation, and the process was a seamless one. She is now enjoying her new, more energy-efficient furnace.
