Heating Contractor

Most heating contractors specialize in designing, installing and servicing the heating systems of specific manufacturers. They’re most familiar with these particular units and have a history of working on them. You'll find heating contractors advertise in the "Heating Contractors" category of the Yellow Pages often featuring those brand names. Online type "heating contractor in (your town)" in the search box of a search engine.

To find a heating contractor familiar with your furnace, know the brand of furnace you have, and choose a contractor who specializes in that brand. You may find a service tag or decal on the furnace, which means they have serviced your system in the past - that’s a good place to start. The best choice is a local heating contractor who will respond to service calls promptly. Expect to pay $60 to $80, the national average hourly rate for a heating contractor.
