If you have scheduled an appointment for a new furnace installation, congratulations! We know it can be a little overwhelming, but it’s also exciting to know that you’ll have a new energy-efficient furnace that will last you for years to come. But you may be wondering, how do you prepare for the installation day?

We have three tips to help you prepare for furnace installation in Batavia, OH. These steps will help to make the new installation process easier for our team as well as yourself. You can keep reading to learn more about what you need to do to prepare ahead of a furnace installation appointment.

Plan to be Home

First, it is important to understand that we need you to be home for the entire day during the installation. We don’t need your help doing anything, but it’s a good idea to be available in case we have questions or need to do anything different with the installation than we originally planned. 

For example, if we come across unexpected electrical issues, we may need to talk to you about your options for making electrical upgrades to accommodate your new furnace. Or maybe we need to access an area of your home that we didn’t plan on accessing, and we want to make sure we have your permission to do so.

Clear the Way

The number one thing that you can do for us is make a clear path for our team to work. We can talk to you about where we will bring the unit new and how much space we will need. He may need to remove photographs and art from your walls to ensure nothing breaks. You may also need to rearrange furniture to create more space for our team. First, we will have to remove your old unit and then bring your new unit in. 

We will do our best to cover your floors and prevent damage to your home. But you can protect your belongings by making sure they are out of the way. It’s a good idea to clear as much space as possible for our team to work in. Remember – we need to access the vents around your home during the testing process to make sure air is blowing evenly through your home. 

Make Plans for Kids and Pets

It’s also important to make plans for kids and pets on the day of installation. If you don’t have anywhere to take them, we encourage you to dedicate space in a single room for them to stay safely out of the way during the installation process. 

Children and pets may be very interested in what our team is doing during a new furnace install. However, we handle a lot of heavy equipment, and the installation process can be dangerous. It is best if children and pets are kept completely out of the main living area over will be working on your new furnace installation.
