If you need to schedule heater / furnace repair in Northern Colorado but this is the first time you’ve needed to hire a HVAC company, you likely have a lot of questions about how to choose the best one.
For this blog, the experts at Loveland HVAC Repair wanted to provide you with some tips that will help you pick a reliable service provider.
Do your homework
Most homeowners want to save money where they can, but when it comes to hiring a furnace repairman, you’ll want to make sure you hire someone that knows what they’re doing.
If you’re starting your search online, we’d suggest you begin by doing a search on Yelp, Angie’s List or Home Advisor. Please don’t look for a HVAC repairman on Craiglist- because you never know what you’ll get.
People who advertise furnace / heater repair services on Craigslist are often unlicensed and uninsured. There is no guarantee they’ll be able to do the work properly and there’s also no guarantee that the repairman has experience in working on the type of equipment that you own.
If the job isn’t done correctly (or they make the repair issue worse), you’re likely going to have a hard time getting them to come back out.
Ask for referrals
If you don’t like the idea of hiring a company based on online reviews, ask your friends, family members, neighbors and/or coworkers if they have a company they can recommend. Word of mouth reviews tend to be worth their weight in gold.
People don’t refer companies that don’t do a good job- so if a friend or neighbor suggest you contact John Doe HVAC Repair, it’s because they’ve had a good experience with that company in the past.
Ask potential service providers for references
When you find a company that you think you want to work with, it’s OK to ask them to provide you with a few references. Be sure to call each one to ask when they had work done, what type of work they had done and whether they were satisfied with the service they received. Was the job done on time and on budget? Did they receive a high-level of customer care?
Ask about continuing education
Lastly, ask the HVAC company whether their employees participate in continuing education. HVAC and furnace technology changes from year to year so you’ll want to make sure you’re working with a technician that’s up to date on the latest technologies and repair trends.
