The day has finally come where you need to say good ridden to your old furnace. While it saw you safely through many winters, all good things come to an end. Now, it’s time to think about preparing to get a furnace replacement. There are a few steps you can take to make the process easier.

Pick Out Your Model

When you’re thinking of purchasing a new furnace, it’s best to consult one of our heating specialists. They can assess your wants and the needs of your home to provide you with potential furnace recommendations. Once you choose the right furnace to fit your needs and your budget, it’s time to schedule your replacement installation.

It’s best to ask what you need to do to prepare your home for the replacement process. Ask what route will be used to take the old furnace out and to bring the replacement furnace in. Additionally, it’s vital to ensure that the removal and disposal of the old furnace are included in the replacement service.

Clean Up Your Home

Shortly before your chosen installation day, it’s time to do some cleaning up. The most obvious area that is going to need cleaning is where your furnace is located. The replacement technicians are going to need room to work around the unit.

You’ll also want to clean up the route that the furnaces will be moved in and out of your home. The more you can move out of this route of travel, the easier it’s going to be for the replacement technicians to get your new furnace installed.

Label Your Breaker and Fuel Line

It’s good practice to ensure that you clear out the route to your electrical panel box because the technicians are going to need access to it. Make sure that the circuit breaker for your furnace is clearly labeled. Additionally, you’ll want to label your fuel line so that it can be easily located by an installation professional.
