How to Choose the Best Furnace Repair Contractor

Feb 13 ,2017

Furnace RepairUh oh! Is your furnace on the fritz? It’s time to call a furnace repair contractor that you can trust. So, how do you know how to choose the best furnace repair contractor for your needs? Here are some tips on how to do just that:

  • Check reviews or ask for referrals. One of the most important things you can do to ensure that your contractor is trustworthy is by checking his or her online reviews. Check Yelp, head to their Facebook page, and scour any other review sites for clues into their performance. Can’t find any reviews listed? This is never a good sign – you should only use a furnace repair contractor whose work history is apparent in their reviews.
  • Be conscious of scams. One of the most important things to consider when you’re on the hunt for a furnace repair contractor is the potential for scams. Yes, they happen. One of the biggest ways to avoid being scammed by a “contractor”? NEVER, and we repeat, NEVER, give your business to a contractor who gives you an estimate over the phone without first getting a look at the job to be done.
  • Get a customized estimate. Which brings us to our next point – you should always get a customized pricing estimate done, before your chosen contractor begins work. Otherwise, you may get hit with a hefty repair fee that you didn’t anticipate.
