  • The company should offer you a quote on repair costs before starting work. Don’t be hesitant to ask if there are any concealed costs. You don’t want a surprise when you get your bill. It’s also a good idea to keep an accurate log of your furnace repair costs during the life of your system.

  • The company should use proper safety measures in their work.
