To say Minnesota is known for its cold winters would be an understatement. We’re a hardy bunch, but we like to be warm as much as anybody else. That’s why long before the snow flies, we’re lining up our “ducks” to make sure we’re ready to hunker down for a long and hopefully, comfortable winter season.
Task number one is to make sure the heating system is in tip-top shape for the season, and the tank is topped off. Doing a test run is a good idea. So’s having the boiler or furnace cleaned and checked.
That’s where a good heating repair service comes in. Here are some of the criteria you should look for when selecting a service to look after one of the most critical home systems in Minnesota – the heating system:
- Make sure the company you choose is fully licensed, insured and bonded. You don’t want any “handyman” assurances. You want professionals.
- Choose a company that offers 24/7 emergency service, because heating systems don’t respect the clock.
- Make sure you’re dealing with a company that’s not just out to make a quick buck by trying to sell you a new system. If your system is repairable, you want it repaired. Period. Reputations count!
- If the worst should happen and your boiler or furnace is kaput, you need a company that carries high-quality name-brand products and has a good financing program. After all, most of us aren’t sitting on piles of cash, especially in the winter what with the holidays and all.
