A furnace installation is a big job, and you can presume it to take a few hours. To help make it go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s typical for a furnace room to double 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. Keep in mind that the Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC technicians will need sufficient room around the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will allow them space and will help keep your belongings from being damaged. You can rest easy that our experts will take extra care to keep your house clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea to move any furniture located 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.
