What to Look For in a Heating Company

How do you know who to trust when your furnace experiences problems and needs a professional? It can be hard to find a reliable company with the expertise to get the job done right the first time. Look for the following when deciding whom to hire to repair or maintain your heating system:

  • Experienced company with highly trained technicians. When researching heating companies, look for a business that has been around for a number of years and check to make sure they provide the most up-to-date training. Reputable companies will promote that their employees are NATE or EPA certified and this can help ensure the technician that shows up at your house will be familiar with the latest technologies.
  • Familiarity with all types of issues and the ability to make repairs on all makes and models of furnaces. A good, professional heating business can accurately diagnose simple fixes like a broken thermostat or clogged airflow, as well as repair serious problems like a failed control module or broken heat exchanger.
  • Maintenance plans. Your furnace needs annual tune-ups to ensure efficient performance and a reduced risk of repairs. Find a heating company that offers a thorough maintenance checklist – technicians should check for things like equipment cracks, proper ventilation and airflow, and correct thermostat calibration. The furnace should also be cleaned and various safety controls should be inspected.
  • Emergency appointments and a work guarantee. After-hours service is a must and make sure the heating company you choose guarantees repairs by working on the issue until it is fixed correctly.
