The decision to replace your furnace is an exciting one. You’ll benefit from greater comfort, better air quality, higher home efficiency and lower utility bills. If the big install day is coming up, read our tips below to ensure the process is easy and smooth!
In Advance . . .
Choose the right HVAC company
First things first, make sure you choose the right expert for the job. Get multiple quotes in order to compare offerings and prices. Look for online testimonials, proper licenses and certifications and a general “good feeling.” Be cautious of dishonest HVAC techs and don’t go with a company that you don’t 100% trust.
Buy touch up paint
If you’re getting a new thermostat in addition to your furnace, it most likely won’t be the exact same size or shape as your current one. Buy some touch up paint in order to fix any areas that may be left uncovered by the new system.
Clear the space
Ensure the technician has a clean and clear space to work in. Also clear the area leading up to the workspace. Remove anything valuable or fragile (mistakes happen!). Not only is this considerate but it will help to prevent accidents and may cut down on the installation time.
On Installation Day. . .
Plan to be home
You should plan to be present during your furnace installation. This process can take several hours or even a whole day so rearrange your schedule accordingly.
Have payment ready
Chances are that you have saved up and are ready to enjoy the benefits of your investment. Find out which method of payment your HVAC company accepts or prefers (cash, check or credit) and have that ready on installation day.
Your technician will certainly review the work with you before leaving, but don’t be afraid to educate yourself on your new equipment by asking questions if something doesn’t make sense or if you need more clarification. Be sure to ask for the proper paperwork such as the warranty information and the receipt for service.
Sit back, relax and enjoy your new furnace
After the installation, it’s finally time to reap the benefits! Just be sure to keep up with regular maintenance to ensure your furnace is always performing optimally and providing the greatest level of comfort for you and your family.
