Dont trust an HVAC company to check your furnace!!
Posted on Saturday, November 17, 2012 6:15 PM
Now that the heating season has arrived,
Time to have your furnace checked out. Especially, if is an older furnace.
Have the gas company check out your heat exchanger or furnace box for cracks or leaks.
It is a free service and it could just save your life or the life of your loved ones.
Do not rely on a HVAC company to do this as I have found that there are several companies out there that will tell you that there is a leak. They have even gone so far as to shut off the gas and red tag the furnace just so they could get the customer to replace it.

If you are considering purchasing a new heating and or air conditioning system,
Make sure that you get at least 3 estimates from licensed HVAC contractors.
Once again, I have another horror story to share.
An elderly lady almost spent $9,000 to replace her furnace.
She was told that she would get the contract after the installation was complete.
Her daughter contacted Polar Bear Heating and Air for a quote so that she could compare.
Needless to say, the Polar Bear quote was under $1,500.
Bottom line, get 3 estimates, compare apples to apples and last but not least
Air Conditioning "Buyers Beware"

Installing a new heating and air conditioning system? What about a city permit?
Permits are required by law. HERS testing is also required by law in certain zones.
My customers have been telling me that my competitors were not going to pull a permit.
A permit to replace a furnace, coil and condenser runs approx. $150.00 depending on the city.
If a HERS test is required, it runs approx. $200.00. When you are paying a few thousand dollars to replace your system, make sure that the job is done legally and make sure the contractor has pulled
Permits, Permits Permits

Don't fall for the line that many heating and air conditioning companies are telling you.
You don't need a permit or it is up to you.
Call your city building dept. and ask them if you are required to pull a permit.
The answer is yes. Make sure that the installation passes the city inspection.
