Some Ways to Prepare for Your Furnace Installation

First, make sure you have professional and qualified installers to handle the main job—and have them onboard before you select the new furnace. Furnace installation is difficult and arduous work that must be performed with precision and care, so don’t trust this task to amateurs (and certainly don’t attempt it yourself). The installers will help pick and size a unit that will do the best job possible for your home.

For the actual installation, you should set aside a full day for the job. Most likely it will take less time than that, but different factors—such as how it takes to remove your current furnace—will affect how long the process takes.

Clear out the workspace around the furnace before the installers arrive. Since furnaces are usually located in the basement, you may have to clean stored items out of the general areas so the installers have room to work (and can consequently do a faster and better job). You should also clear out the area that leads to the furnace. Professional installers will do their best to avoid damaging your home and belongings, but keep in mind that heavy pieces of equipment will move through this area, and you want to make sure that the region is safe and nothing valuable might receive damage from accidents.

You won’t need to worry about protecting the carpets and floors, however: if you have hired professionals, they will use drop cloths to protect the regions where they work

This is the extent of what you need to do. Otherwise, relax and let the experts take it from here.
