How to Prepare for a New Furnace Installation

Has your old furnace finally died? Unfortunately, having to replace your furnace is something you need to do every 10 to 15 years, which is just long enough to feel like you must do it for the first time. If you are in the market for a new furnace installation, you may wonder what your next step should be to prepare for it.

  • Research New Furnaces – Furnace technology has changed since you bought your last one. They are more energy efficient and come with new features that may better suit your household heating needs. Now is the time to research what you want out of your furnace to pick a model that is right for you.
  • Research the Installation Company – Furnace installation is not a DIY task. You will want to leave it to an HVAC company. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your due diligence. Make sure you choose an HVAC company that makes you feel confident in them. They should be able to answer your questions clearly and concisely so that you know you are getting the best service.
  • Clear the Area – Before an impending furnace installation, there are a few things you can do to help the HVAC company install it. The first thing is to make sure the area where your furnace is going to be installed is clear. Items should be moved at least six feet away for the installation. A clear path should also be made for the company to bring your new furnace in and haul away your old model as well. This helps speed things up and prevent any accidents.
