Your home heating furnace looks like a very substantial piece of equipment; all metal and flaming, ready to make mincemeat of an inexperienced person that wants to try and make repairs or carry out general maintenance. But it really isn’t that bad! (if you’re a trained professional with years of experience!).
If your furnace needs repairing or maintenance, you should always leave it to the professionals, but even then, you can help them out.
This applies particularly if you need repairs. A good technician will know of any common problems that are associated with a particular brand or model, meaning that diagnosis and repair could be very quick and disruption is kept to a minimum.
If your furnace is buried behind a mound of ‘stuff too good to throw away’, remember that a contractor could be charging you hourly – would you rather clear a path and work space for them or pay them their professional hourly rate to do it?
Before calling an emergency technician out, check the basics (if you’re able to).
For example – has there been a power outage?
While we enjoy meeting our customers, we don’t like charging you an emergency fee if there has been something like a power outage, try and check the basics if you can.
Again, when reporting the breakdown, try and give as many details as possible. If your furnace has had a few problems over the years, telling the technician could help him diagnose the problem.
