How to Hire a Home Heating Contractor

When it comes to selecting a local company for any home heating job, especially a new system installation, it can be difficult to know who’s best qualified to do the work, and who above all local service providers is most deserving of your trust.

Ultimately, you’re most likely to choose the one company you have the best “feeling” about.  But there’s still some homework to be done so you can narrow your choices to a few deserving contenders.  Here at Furnace Doctors, we’re happy to help you do just that.

  1. blogAsk around. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Ask what type of heating work they’ve had performed and how satisfied they were with the experience.
  1. Research. After you’ve compiled a list of potential contractors, hit the web. In today’s information age, you can get reviews on anything and everything with a few clicks of the mouse. See if the companies you’re researching have had any formal complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau and how (or if) they’ve been resolved.
  1. Interview. Don’t be shy: pick up the phone and interview your narrowed list of contenders.  How well do they treat you on the phone?  Do they patiently answer your questions without making you feel rushed?  Do they offer emergency service should something go seriously wrong with your system?  The right service provider will be happy to answer all your questions.
  1. Licensing and insurance. Make sure each semi-finalist is licensed to perform the work in your state, and able to cover any mishaps that occur during a service or repair call.
  1. Written quotes and guarantees. Your contractor should be prepared to offer you a written quote prior to beginning any work. They also should be able to guarantee your satisfaction as an act of good faith.

At Furnace Doctors, we work hard not just to earn, but keep the trust and confidence of the many customers we’re privileged to serve.  We’ll work just as hard for you if we’re fortunate enough to be chosen for your next heating, air conditioning, or indoor air quality project.
