Things To Do Before Your New Furnace Installation

If your current furnace has seen better days and it is time to replace it, you will want to schedule a furnace replacement as soon as possible. The sooner you set up the appointment, the less likely it is that you are going to end up spending a lot of time without heat in the house. Of course, before the HVAC company arrives, you will need to do a few things. Here's some advice to help get you started:

Clear A Wide Pathway To The Furnace

A lot of homes have a furnace in the basement, which can often become cluttered with all kinds of things. If you have a lot of stuff in your basement, you need to make sure that you are moving some of it out of the way. Even if you technically already have a path to the furnace, it might not be wide enough. You have to consider that the contractors will be removing the old furnace and bringing in the new one. The furnace itself can be wide and there could be additional ductwork that needs to be installed for the new furnace.

Ask About Including Some Upgrades

Now would be the time to inquire about some upgrades to the heating system. Since they are already going to be in your house, installing the new furnace, you would not have to pay for an extra service call fee if they include the upgrades right then and there. You could ask about getting an air purifier and a humidifier with the furnace package. You will need to pay for the additional equipment and labor, but the added labor costs might not be much at all since they are already there.

Keep Your Schedule Clear For The Day

The installation of a new furnace can take just an hour or so. Then again, if some issues pop up, it could take all day to get the job done. This is why it is important to make sure that you clear your schedule for the day. If you cannot do that, just make sure that there will be someone at the house the entire time the contractors are there.

When calling the HVAC company to schedule a heater installation, you can always ask if there is anything else you should do in order to prepare for their arrival. Call a local heating contractor to learn more about your new furnace.
