Make Sure You Only Use a Licensed Contractor to Perform a Furnace RepairIt can be a real hassle when a furnace breaks down and stops working. Firstly, there is the inconvenience and discomfort of having to do without the heat that it provides while arranging and waiting for it to be repaired. Then there is the unexpected and un-budgeted-for expense. Due to these two factors, many homeowners fall into the trap of giving the furnace repair job to the cheapest contractor they can find.

Often these contractors claim to be able to repair the furnace in lightning-fast time, as well as for next to nothing. A lot of the time, these claims are unrealistic, and, unfortunately, it is all too easy for things to go wrong when using a fly-by-night, unlicensed furnace repair contractor. This news item shows what can happen when a bad contractor takes on a furnace repair.

If you live in North Carolina and are in need of a furnace repair, make sure that any contractor you are considering giving the job to is properly licensed by the North Carolina State Board of Examiners of Plumbing, Heating and Fire Sprinkler Contractors (http://www.nclicensing.org).

A contractor should be able to produce a license number on request, and many display this information on their company website, quotes, and other documentation. If there is any doubt about the contractor’s license, you can always contact the board, quote the license number, and double-check that everything is in order.
