Tips for buying a new furnace
Schedule an annual furnace tune-up:
- Do your research on the HVAC Contractor - Read the online reives for the contractors that you are getting bids from. Google and Facebook are typically the most reliable of online review services.
- Make sure your HVAC Contractor is certified - One of the more important certifications for HVAC technicians is NATE. NATE stands for NORTH AMERICAN TECHNICIAN EXCELLENCE. NATE is the nation’s largest nonprofit certification organization for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) technicians. NATE tests represent real-world working knowledge of HVACR systems and validate the professional competency of service and installation technicians. Contractors, manufacturers, distributors, and educators across the industry partner with NATE to develop knowledgeable, competent HVACR technicians. Home and business owners choose HVACR contractors who employ NATE-certified technicians to get repairs done right – the first time. Check out their site here
- Make sure that the size is correct for your home - there are many different sized furnaces out there as well as brands. Make sure that the HVAC contractor you select to replace your furnace is choosing a size appropriate furnace for your home. There are different BTU's that can also be very energy efficient, which could ultimately help you save money on your energy bill.
- Don't always go with the lowest bid - if you reach out to three different HVAC contractors and find 2 are around the same price and one is well below, be wary. You do really get what you pay for. If a contractor way underbid your job, it may not be that they are honest, but more that they are not going to give you the best service.
Your furnace needs annual maintenance just like your car. There are many reasons why you need annual heating maintenance, but the number one reason is to save you money in the long run.
