November 15, 2016

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

Even though your initial instinct may be to ask your friends and family for their opinion, you can discover a lot of background about a company on your own, it’s hanging at your fingertips. Utilizing online databases and websites, you can figure out: how long a company has been in business, the mood of their customer’s feedback, financing choices, the promotions they are offering and many more with a quick search. The team at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling have compiled some things you can look for when choosing a furnace repair company.

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

  • The company should practice proper safety measures in their work. You are trusting the repair person with your house and belongings and you want to be sure nothing will be hurt or damaged during the repair. Ask the company about their work procedures and the time-frame in order to better understand how they operate.

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

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