Selecting a company to service your heating equipment is an important decision. If you go with one that is inexperienced but cheap, you run the risk of the technician causing permanent damage to your furnace or heat pump. The heating service you choose should offer the following services at a minimum:
- Routine and emergency repairs: Some heating problems are more urgent than others are. If your heating system is acting erratically but you're still warm, you can probably wait a day or two for services. However, having no heat at all is a different matter, especially in British Columbia. Before you book with a HVAC company for the first time, ask what its policy is for urgent appointments.
- Preventive maintenance: Regular tune-ups are the best way to ensure that your furnace or heat pump lasts as long as possible. Scheduling an appointment every fall is ideal, but you can do this at any time of year.
- Sales and installation of new equipment: When your heating equipment eventually does wear out, you need help choosing a new unit. Be sure to choose a HVAC company that is willing to answer your questions about cost, energy efficiency, and more in a straightforward and patient manner. Another thing to look for is a company that carries major brands of HVAC equipment like Lennox and Carrier.
Heating and cooling technicians need specialized training and a professional, can-do attitude to have a successful career. When you are considering whom to hire, ask if the company's technicians have completed BCIT training, are government licensed, and have undergone manufacturer's training. These credentials increase the likelihood of outstanding service.
