Choosing the Right Company to Handle Your Furnace Repair

November 15, 2016

You can stay even more cozy this winter in the Bay Area with the knowledge that you have an honest and reliable technician you can call on for furnace repair. You can find the ideal company right where you are now, online.

Though your prime instinct may be to ask your friends and family for their opinion, you can find out a lot of background about a company on your own, it’s hanging at your fingertips. Utilizing online databases and websites, you can uncover: how long a company has been in business, the feel of their customer’s reviews, financing options, the promotions they are offering and many more with an effortless search. The team at Contra Costa Heating & AC have compiled some things you can look for when searching for a furnace repair company.

  • The company should offer you a quote on repair costs before starting work. Don’t be scared to ask if there are any concealed costs. You don’t want a surprise when you get your bill. It’s also a safe idea to keep an accurate list of your furnace repair costs over the life of your system.

  • The company should use proper safety procedures in their work. You are trusting the repair person with your home and possessions and you want to make sure nothing will be harmed or damaged during the repair. Ask the company about their work procedures and the time-frame in order to better understand how they run.

  • The company should be properly bonded and licensed. If a company is bonded that will protect you if anything goes off-track during the repair. It also shows you that you’re working with a reputable company.

  • The company clearly explains and puts in writing what is wrong with your furnace. A trustworthy company ensures their customers are aware the work required to fix a problem. They don’t want to leave you in the dark.

Knowing the right questions to ask and what to expect will help you feel confident you’re choosing the right repair company.
