I live in southern, coastal city, and when a huge storm swept through this past summer the area saw a lot of flooding.
My street was a practical river, and my basement was among many that turned into an indoor swimming pool.
I luckily don’t use my basement for storage of any kind but, unfortunately, it is where my furnace is located and after the flood waters were drained I couldn’t get my heating system to work. Of course, I expected as much, but expecting it doesn’t mean I was happy with having to shoulder the HVAC repair costs that insurance wouldn’t completely cover. I called around, checking out the general rated of the various HVAC companies in my area, and settling on an HVAC provider to do the inspection and repairs. Their HVAC technician was incredibly friendly and gave his sympathies for the unfortunate flood damage. He was the perfect mix of professional and personable combined into one extremely efficient, helpful worker. The damage from the water was fatal to my electric furnace system, but installing a new one wasn’t as lengthy of a process as I assumed it would be. It was a newer, but similar, model to my old one, although I’m not an expert on HVAC matters to know the differences and benefits of each. All I know is that I received great service for my furnace installation and the price, even if I was paying the entirety of the costs without the assistance of my homeowner’s insurance, was reasonable given the equipment and installation costs. Loving their service, I even signed up for their HVAC maintenance for future HVAC service. Hopefully next time it won’t involve the complete installation of a new system.
