When you are getting ready to replace your furnace, there are a lot of things that you need to do. You need to make decisions as to which furnace you are going to go with and how it will fit into your house. That's not all you need to do, though. You also need to make sure that your house is ready for the installation of your new furnace. You want to make sure that it goes as smoothly as possible so that your new furnace can get to work as soon as possible.
Create a Path
You are going to want to make sure that you have a clear path from where the service techs are going to park their vehicle to where the new furnace is going on. That doesn't mean that your house is a mess or anything, it just means that you want to make sure that there is nothing along that path that might get damaged by a bulky item like a furnace being hauled through your house. That includes things like taking art off the walls, moving furniture, and even possibly removing doors from jambs so that there is plenty of room for anything to go through. You should also make sure that you have taken up any loose area rugs or similar things.
Clear the Furnace Area
Another thing that you want to do is to make sure that your furnace area is all cleared out. If you have space near or around your furnace, you might use it as a storage area because the space isn't getting used in any other way. But, if you leave all that stuff in the area, it will make it hard for the service techs to do their jobs, and it will make it harder for them because they are going to have to deal with all that stuff, move it, and try to find someplace to put it. That will all have to happen before they can even start on the job. However, if you have already taken the time to move all your stored items, then as soon as the furnace installation technicians get to your house, they can start work on the installation.
If you are going to get a new furnace, you need to make sure that your house is ready for the installation. Making sure that you and your house are ready will make it easier for the service techs.
