If you are looking for repairs, maintenance or installation for your home heating system, you need to know where to turn. Finding the right heating contractor is an important step to take to keep your heating and cooling system functioning year round in all kinds of weather. The comfort of your home for you and your family relies on this.
Now you need to have some idea of what steps to consider when doing this. Here are a few things that can help make hiring a professional heating contractor that much easier.
- First, make sure your potential heating contractor is licensed, bonded and insured. This is true for basically any type of contractor you allow into your home. It is also not something you have to worry about when it comes to Jennings Heating and Cooling Co., Inc. While many “contractors” may try to offer you a better deal because they do have these things in place, it is too big a risk to take.
- Look for a professional who takes the time to come and do an inspection or survey what he or she will be working with. A truly professional contractor for heating will make the effort to have a look at what they will be working with as well as determining your needs or goals. For repairs this should also include knowing you are working with a company that offers 24 hour emergency service. This is all something you will easily find when you work with Jennings.
- Work with a trusted and respected name, one that can offer references, testimonials or comes to you as a referral from someone you know and trust. Too many businesses get started, perform shoddy work, then disappear. A fly-by-night heating and cooling company is going to leave you stranded with more expenses to cover in the long run. There is a reason Jennings has been in business for more than 80 years and why our customers are eager to refer us to those they know.
- Get your estimates for repairs, costs for parts and labor costs in writing. While there is the occasional deviance from a quote, this helps prevent gouging. More homeowners than you would care to think about have been left with a job partially done and the heating contractor’s hand out for more money in order to finish the job. Jennings would never have been able to service the residents of Ohio for so many decades if this was their standard practice.
The bottom line is that when it is time to call in an expert there really is only one name you know you can rely on in the Ohio area. We assure you that you can ask around about Jennings and hear good responses. You can shop around for prices and find out how competitive we are. When it comes to finding a contractor for your heating needs, don’t take a gamble. Make the call to Jennings and get things started today.
