It seems there is a HVAC contractor on every corner in the Chicagoland area. This could be for any number of reasons including no state licensing, low-cost entry into the business, availability of numerous products and a large base of potential customers (everyone house needs at least heating in Illinois). Because of the sheer number of HVAC contractors in the area and the wide-ranging prices between contractors here are 5 things to ask your HVAC contractor before the project starts to protect you, your investment in equipment and your home.
Hey Chicagoland area did you know your utility providers, Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas have money to help you purchase a new furnace? And, did you know ComEd will kick in some money as well if you purchase a complete new furnace and air conditioning system? While they advertise the rebates, the fact is, each month on your utility bill you are paying for the program. The amount you pay is a reflection of the number or therms or kilowatts you consume.
