6 Steps to Hiring Furnace a Repair Pro
  1. 1. Do your homework

    Do a little research to learn about licensing requirements and expectations, heating system and furnace standards and average pricing in your area.

  2. 2. Get references

    Ask each company for references and then contact each. Hiring a competent heating system or furnace repair and maintenance contractor is easier with valid input from others.

  3. 3. Ask for a written estimate

    A full home evaluation will check heating ducts for leaks and may reveal problems that are easily repaired without spending a fortune.

  4. 4. Save some money

    Maintenance service contracts might begin with a free visit to determine if repairs are required. Ask for any special offers and determine if a seasonal contract adds value.

  5. 5. Select efficient appliances

    Choose new heating appliances that offer incentives or rebates. These appliances save money and are generally more energy efficient.

  6. 6. Plan ahead for repairs

    Obtain written and itemized estimates for any repair work. Ensure that the company offers a guarantee following the repairs or a warranty for full furnace or heater installation.
