How to Find a Great Heating Repair Company

March 1, 2019

In Orchard Park, we ask a lot from our heating systems each winter. You need reliable heating service professionals who can help keep your equipment working through the season. Here are some things to look for when searching for a heating service company.

Certified, Trained, and Experienced Technicians

The best heating repair companies use technicians who have industry-approved licenses and certifications. NATE, or North American Technician Excellence, is one such certification. NATE-certified technicians are knowledgeable about all aspects of heating systems. At Vastola Heating & Cooling, we’re not only NATE-certified, but we’re also safety trained and certified with OSHA.

You’ll also want professionals who are thoroughly trained and have actual real-world experience at repairing, installing, and maintaining systems. Just as you probably wouldn’t want a doctor just out of medical school performing your surgery, you wouldn’t want a technician who isn’t quite familiar with furnaces checking out your equipment on a cold day.

Look for a company that has been around for a while. A business that has been around for years are stable and have earned the trust of the community. Vastola Heating & Cooling has been around for over 70 years.

Great BBB Rating

A company with a high BBB rating is telling. A business with an A+ rating, for example, means that it has had little or no complaints, has been around for a while and has transparent business practices, among other things. Look for a heating company with at least an A rating.

Safety Measures

You’ll want a technician who is going to be in your home to be trustworthy. The top heating businesses should perform background checks and drug tests on their employees to ease customer concerns. These companies should ideally also be licensed, bonded, and insured.

Company Can Do It All

The best heating companies don’t just provide one type of service for their customers. Different homeowners have different situations and needs. What is right for one may not be the best for another. You might need a complete system replacement while your neighbor just needs a minor repair. A top-notch heating services business should have no issues with performing maintenance, installation, and repair tasks all on the same day.

At Vastola Heating & Cooling, we not only provide heating services. We also work on air conditioners, generators, boilers, and tankless water heaters. We can run an indoor air quality test at your home and clean out your ducts. Call us today if you need furnace or heat pump service in Orchard Park.
