Replacing your Furnace is definitely not something you should consider doing on your own. You definitely need a trusted heating contractor to install and service your furnace.
A homeowner should know the some of right questions to ask when having a new furnace installed:
- What is the Furnace Maintenance schedule for my new furnace? New models, including High Efficiency Furnaces may have slightly different maintenance schedules than older models.
- Do I need to change my thermostat when I install a new furnace? Yes. Installing a digital thermostat will ensure the accuracy of the temperature in your home.
- How often do I need to change my furnace filter? There is no set schedule for changing filters, but it is advisable to check it regularly, especially if you’ve had work done in your home, or if you have pets.
- How often should I have my Furnace Serviced? Usually once a year, but depending on the age and condition of your furnace, you might want to consider having it checked more often.
