Tips For Hiring a Heating Installation and Service Company

It’s important to conduct some research before you hire a heating installation and service company. You certainly don’t want to overpay for a repair, tune-up and especially an entire heating system replacement. Although hiring the best contractor at the best price can be a daunting let alone scary task, the good news is that we’ve prepared a list of valuable tips that you can use as a guide. Once you have put a list together of potential heating installation and service contractors that you plan on contacting, it’s necessary to be prepared to weed out the good ones from the not so good ones. So, without further ado, here is our list of tips for hiring a heating installation and service company.

Tip #1: Ask The Contractor For a Copy Of Their License and Insurance Certificate

First and foremost, any heating installation and service company worth their weight in salt will be both licensed and insured. In essence, it’s the first step that shows that they’re a legitimate business and not a fly  by night operation or even a scammer. You can check online to see a copy of their business license and or insurance certificate, or you can ask the contractor directly to see copies. As a side note, many  heating systems are tied in with the plumbing system, so, many heating installation and service companies will also have a plumbing license. Ask to see a copy of their plumbing license as well.

Tip #2: Ask The Contractor About the Latest Energy Efficient Options

A top-notch heating installation and service contractor should not only be familiar with the latest Energy Star certified furnaces available, they should also be highly suggesting that you choose this option.  The Energy Star products meet the most stringent energy efficient guidelines as set forth by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. In the long run, you’ll save a significant amount of money in energy based savings. We highly suggest that you conduct a bit of research on this topic prior to speaking with any heating contractors.

Tip # 3: Get Everything In Writing

If you’re obtaining estimates from multiple heating installation and service companies, it’s important to get all the bids in writing. That way you can break down all the figures including the costs of the equipment and the costs of labor. You’ll also be able to compare the estimates side by side, which makes things a lot easier for you when it’s time to decide which contractor to hire.
