Buying a new heating & cooling or indoor air quality system is one of the most important decisions you will make. Before you commit to such a big investment, it’s vital to do some research and ask some pertinent questions so you can avoid the following 4 common mistakes:
- Choosing an Unlicensed or Unqualified Furnace Installation Contractor – Selecting the right contractor is probably the most important part of the purchasing process, yet most homeowners don’t ask enough questions to ensure that the contractor is experienced and properly qualified for the installation.
- Getting Only One Furnace Installation Estimate – It’s always advisable to get more than one estimate. Make sure that each is written out correctly and take the time to compare and review the quality of the equipment and warranty offered. Are things like permits and the removal of old materials and equipment included in the estimate?
- Going for the Cheapest Price – You should always choose a contractor who promotes the quality of their equipment and services at reasonable rates, rather than selecting the one who offers the cheapest price. The cheapest price doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting the best value. For example, the cheaper contractor may not offer important services such as 24-hour emergency response or service and maintenance agreements after installation.
- Not Reading the Fine Print in the Warranty – It’s essential to completely understand the warranty being offered by a furnace installation contractor. You should always ask if it covers parts or labour only, or both. Also inquire if there are additional charges over and above the warranty coverage.
