There are probably plenty of people out there who would be willing to service your heater, or any other home comfort appliance in your house, but that doesn’t mean they should. Many general handymen (and women) out there don’t actually have much experience specifically in the HVAC industry, and therefore will be learning by using your system as an example—which isn’t a comfortable feeling when you consider how cold our winters get. Do you really want your heater to be a guinea pig?
Fortunately, there are plenty of qualified HVAC contractors out there. But how do you find them? What qualities do you look for? The obvious answer is “someone with a lot of training and experience,” but we’d like to take it a step beyond that and offer you some guidance on exactly what qualities we think you should use to hire your next heating professional.
