Whether you need a new boiler system or your existing boiler stops working, finding a trusted HVAC company that can reliably perform the services you need to stay warm is essential. How do you know which company is the best for the job? Rusk Heating & Cooling has tips on how to find the best boiler repair and installation company to help with your home heating needs.

Start with Recommendations

Any homeowner knows that a well-functioning boiler is essential for keeping the house warm during the winter months. But when a boiler breaks down, or you need a new one, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help. 

One of the best ways to find a reputable and reliable boiler repair and installation company is to ask for recommendations from friends and family members who have had a recent experience with such a company. In addition, it’s a good idea to check online review sites to see what other customers have had to say about different companies. By taking these steps, you can obtain solid leads from a possible company to help keep your home comfortable all winter long.

Research Each Boiler Maintenance and Installation Company

Once you have a short list of recommended boiler replacement and installation companies, it’s time to learn more about them. Take time to review company websites and even call companies to ask questions. Here are a few things to look for when doing your homework before choosing a boiler repair and installation company:

  • Make sure that the company you choose is experienced and reputable. Find out how long they’ve been in business. Ask what types and brands of boilers they work with to ensure the company’s skillset is compatible with any existing boiler equipment you need help with or a new brand of boiler you’re considering for installation. You want to ensure the company is capable of safely providing the services you need.
  • Verify that the boiler repair and installation company is licensed and insured. This will protect you in case of any accidents or damage to your property during the repair or installation process.
  • Find out if the boiler repair and installation company offers a warranty on their work or what type of manufacturer’s warranty is offered for the new boiler you wish to purchase. A warranty will give you peace of mind in knowing that if something goes wrong, you will be covered.

Get Estimates

Before you choose a boiler repair and installation company to install a new boiler heating system, get multiple estimates from your top candidates – three quotes are often recommended. Many boiler installation contractors provide free estimates for equipment installation projects. Comparing these estimates will give you a good idea of what the typical cost is for the work and equipment you need.

The boiler repair and installation company should come to your home to do the estimate so they can thoroughly assess your needs and give you an accurate price – don’t accept an estimate over the phone for a new boiler installation. Also, get a detailed written estimate from each boiler company so you know exactly what is included.

When it comes to repair services for an existing boiler, any boiler repair and installation company you talk to is likely to charge a service fee for diagnostics. Before scheduling a service appointment, call your top contractors and ask what their service charge is. Once the boiler issue has been diagnosed, the boiler repair and installation company should provide you with the details of their findings and their recommended repairs, as well as an estimate for the cost of the repair.
