How to Locate a Qualified Home Heating Contractor
Hiring the most qualified residential heating contractor is key to ensuring a long life for your boiler and heating system.
- Licensing and Experience
Your home heating system may be the most expensive equipment in your home. You will want to be confident that whoever works on it is appropriately trained. Michigan requires contractors who install or repair any heating, cooling, ventilating, or refrigerating system to have a Michigan HVAC license. They must be 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED equivalent, have three years of experience in the specific work field (e.g., hydronic heating), and pass the required exams. When you evaluate prospective contractors, ask about their licensing, their length of experience, certifications they may have through organizations such as North American Technician Excellence (NATE), and about their training with U.S. Boiler Company systems and equipment.
- References and Referrals
Compare the candidates you find with the U.S. Boiler Company locator tool and seek suggestions from your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Their advice can be an excellent resource regarding the dependability, quality, and professionalism of your candidates. Ask the potential contractor for references and call them up. Ask if work was completed on time and within the budget. The Internet also offers a wealth of information when you need services of any kind – including boiler repair and installation services.
- Written Estimates
Some contractors try to give customers verbal estimates so that there will be no written record of what they initially said. A trustworthy heating contractor, on the other hand, will provide an itemized written estimate and explain all estimated charges and why they are being recommended. The person should be open to questions and provide you with clear answers. If an estimate makes you doubt a contractor’s honesty, it’s unlikely that their work will give you confidence.
