If you’re like most homeowners, you rely on your furnace to provide your home and family with warmth during the colder winter seasons. When your old furnace finally reaches the end of its lifespan, it’s time to pick out a new one. Here are some helpful tips that will allow you to successfully prepare for a new furnace replacement.
Set Up an Initial Consultation Appointment
You want to start the replacement process by contacting a heating specialist. They will listen to your needs and evaluate your home’s features to determine the various furnace recommendations for your home. Once you get your new furnace picked out, it’s time to schedule your installation appointment. Now is also the time to ask your furnace professional what you need to do to prepare for the replacement process.
Clean Up Everything
The more space that you can provide your furnace installation technicians, the quicker they’re going to be able to do their job. You’ll want to start by cleaning up the space around your furnace to ensure that they can easily remove the entire unit. Second, you’ll want to clean up the route that they’ll be using to remove your old furnace and bring in your new one. Lastly, you’ll want to clear out the routes to your electrical panel box and fuel line.
Have Plans for Your Pets and Children
The furnace installation process will typically take close to one full day to be completed. During this time, it’s best to have both your pets and your children out of the way. You don’t want them to get injured while the furnace is being moved around or cause injury to any of the furnace installers. Additionally, the less interaction your pets and children have with your furnace installers, the more focused your installers are going to be on their work.
