What to look for when choosing a heating & air conditioning contractor
People often fret over the brand of furnace to buy, but the contractor you choose is every bit as important. Not only is the quality of the workmanship and installation crucial to the furnace’s lifespan, the company you choose will be relied on for future servicing and warranty coverage.
Always choose an established company that has:
- Good, independently-verified feedback
- A solid track record and no outstanding disputes
- Verified insurance, licenses, and certifications
- Experienced staff, with manufacturer training
- Registered to offer rebates
Checking all of these things is difficult and time-consuming.
That’s why we’ve already done it for you!

Purchasing a High-Efficiency Furnace
When it comes to home heating systems, it’s best to do your research. After all, this is a purchase to last you at least the next decade or longer, so you want to be happy. When purchasing a new furnace, it is important to look at a few major points.
Warranty: Make sure the furnace model you select comes with comprehensive warranty coverage that protects you from costly repairs. Warranty coverage varies across manufacturers. However, all of them include some degree of limited heat exchanger, parts and in some cases total unit replacement.
Energy-efficiency: One of the best reasons to look into a new home heating system is the energy savings on your monthly home heating bills. AFUE ratings range from 92% up to 98%. The higher the AFUE, the bigger the savings. For Windsor residents upgrading from an outdated, inefficient system upgrading to an entry level 92% AFUE furnace model will result in noticeable savings, compared to your inefficient model.
Government Rebates Available
Your local HVAC distributor should be knowledgeable and up to date with the furnace rebates you may be eligible for. If they don’t mention it, ask them to check to see if you qualify for any government rebates. The HVAC company you work with can apply for these rebates on your behalf. Make sure to research this before you have your equipment installed.
