The end of winter tends to see the most heater breakdowns and repair calls in our neck of the woods. Heating systems have been running regularly for months now, and while temperatures will start going up again soon, there are still a few more weeks to get through where our heating systems will be vital. If your system is experiencing trouble and has a serious breakdown, you need a qualified heating repair company to arrive and get the problem fixed right away.
But which service should you call? There are a number of qualified companies throughout the greater Austin area, and in the end, only the homeowner can determine which service is the best fit for their needs. There are, however, several qualities you should look for in the service you call that can make that decision easier. We’ve included a list of the most important below.
Most companies have testimonials from satisfied customers and similar affiliations assuring you how well they do their jobs. But if you’re looking for a service that goes above and beyond, you should look for more credible affiliations. For example, Angie’s List provides excellent third-party evaluations of a given heating and cooling service, while the companies that manufacture the actual heating and cooling systems will give affiliations to repair services indicating that they are trusted to fix any problems with the system properly. Such affiliations can help you separate the truly good companies from those that are just run of the mill.
While winters are mild, a lack of heating can be dangerous for certain homes, and waiting even a few hours for proper repairs can be extremely problematic in many cases. Not every problem reveals itself during normal business hours, and sometimes, you can’t wait until morning–or the end of the weekend–to get a heater or an air conditioner fixed. Quality companies recognize this and will offer emergency services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That means they’re willing to do what it takes to get your system up and running again and that you can count on them to be there no matter what kind of assistance you may need.
Estimates and Guarantees
Fly-by-night companies rarely concern themselves with telling you how much a rapid call will cost upfront. That way, they can quietly raise the price during the operation by finding some “new” problem that will cost you more to fix. A reputable company, however, will have none of such foolishness. That means providing up-front estimates so that you know exactly how much the operation will cost before any work begins. It also means offering promotions and guarantees that ensure the problem is corrected the way you expect it to be, and that your system will be up and running with no further problems by the time they’re done.
