A broken or dysfunctioning furnace has got to be one of those things most of us dread having to deal with, especially if the weather means we really need to rely on it.

Apart from the inconvenience and disruption, there’s also the cost of repair or replacement to fret about, and that’s even supposing you can find a competent and trustworthy company to actually come out and deal with the problem for you.
Still, when it comes to furnace repairs it’s not worth settling for a less than stellar company to fix it, but how do you spot one worth pursuing? Take a look at the list we have put together that should help guide you through the process.

Look for the following points when you have a furnace repair company to check out and you will find it easier to decide on who is worth pursuing.

1 – They make it easy for you to contact them

Not everyone likes to talk on the phone or has access to email, so a good selection of ways to get in touch with a company avoids excluding anybody.

2 –They care about honoring arrangements made

This means not being late or failing to show up at all. It’s surprising how many tradespeople seem to think that is acceptable! On the other hand, some companies offer exciting bonus features such as cashback if they are late for your job.

3- Their fees are fair

Set, clear and agreed fees are always nice to see, and any decent company will be happy to provide them or agree on a reasonable quote. They may even offer an attractive payment plan and offer out of hours appointments and emergency help for no additional charge over the usual rate.

4 – They have proven experience in all aspects of the field

Choosing an excellent furnace repair company is essential for peace of mind, and the same company may well also provide technicians who are able to install or advise on other things such as:

· general heating and cooling systems
· water heating systems
· a furnace service
· a high-efficiency furnace
· HVAC contractors who are trained in the multi heating-ventilation and air conditioning systems commonly installed in newer businesses

5 – They have adequate insurance

Most good furnace repair companies will make sure you see proof of insurance – comprehensive enough to cover all eventualities to the highest reasonable degree. If you are not automatically shown this document do feel free to ask about it, a good business has nothing to hide.

6 – They have excellent reviews and testimonials

Whether it’s comments left on local trade directories, review pages, or a company’s own website and social media you can learn a lot about the real face of a business by reading the feedback they get from former clients. This is rarely 100% positive but should be mostly fine, with no great red flags to worry about.
