September 29, 2017

So, you’re purchasing 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 several hours. To help make the process go as quickly and easily as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be getting back to cozy comfort in no time.

It’s very common for a furnace room to act 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 KDM Service Corporation technicians will need sufficient room surrounding the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our experts will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also wise to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room.

You should be aware that you could need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous furnace. Plus, now may be the perfect 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 indoor space at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or want 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.
