  • The company should offer you a quote on repair costs before starting 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 safe idea to keep an updated account of your furnace repair costs throughout the life of your system.

  • The company should practice proper safety measures in their work.

Ask the company about their work procedures and the time-frame in order to better understand how they run.

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