Hello, my name is Jacob. I would like to talk about proper installation and repair of the HVAC system in your commercial building. Full scale HVAC systems for commercial buildings require ongoing maintenance and repairs to keep every floor and room at a comfortable temperature. These temperature control systems also control the air quality in the building by sending the airflow through filter elements. My site will cover all aspects of the upkeep needed for these systems. I will also talk about the benefits of keeping your air quality and temperatures at desirable levels. Thanks for coming to visit my website.
When you run into furnace trouble, your top priority is getting the heat back on in your home as soon as possible. Before you sign off on a proposed furnace repair, however, there are a few questions worth asking.
Is This the Only Option?
A lot of well-meaning HVAC technicians will only provide you with their repair recommendation and a quote for that repair. However, there are often a few possible ways to resolve any given furnace problem. Take some time to explore your options and make sure you're choosing the right repair for your needs and budget. For example, if you were already planning to replace your furnace in a few months, you might opt for a cheaper and more "temporary" repair over a permanent and more costly solution.
Can You Waive the Service Call Charge?
Furnace repairs can be expensive, with the national average ranging between $130 to $469 for a single repair. However, you may be able to save some money by working your negotiation skills. One common practice that some HVAC companies will follow is to waive the service call fee with a paid repair. However, you may need to ask your technician for this courtesy.
How Will You Stand Behind Your Work?
Before the repair is completed, make sure you have a solid understanding of what kind of guarantee and/or warranty comes with the work. If your furnace needs a new part, for instance, you'll want to know how long the manufacturer's warranty on the part is and what it will cover. If there is an issue with the part, you'll also want to know whether or not your HVAC company will cover labor costs associated with replacing or repairing it later on.
What Else Do You Need to Know?
Completing your furnace repair should get your heat back up and running in no time—but that's little consolation if your furnace has other unaddressed issues. Make sure that the repair you're having done will provide you with reliable heat through at least the rest of the winter months. If there are other repairs that need to be done, make sure your HVAC technician explains these to you and can provide you with a quote to complete them.
Furnace repairs are never fun, but by taking the time to ask the right questions before you sign off on a repair, you can enjoy a little extra peace of mind. Reach out to a local professional next time you need furnace repair.
