Did you know that before purchasing a boiler, furnace, or air conditioner that homeowners spend an average of 9 hours researching installers, products, and comparing quotes? While it’s smart to do some due diligence, your own research may not be accurate and may actually confuse you more. Here are three reasons to save your time and and start with an expert instead:

1 - Broad information -  Whether it’s pricing or product descriptions, the information you find online won’t be specific to your home or tailored to your needs. And because there’s no standard for quotes, pricing can vary wildly.

We recommend starting out by speaking with an expert. When you call Tetra, we connect you with an account manager right away. With a few details about your home, they can answer your questions, determine the best products, and get you a fixed-price quote before the call is over.

But how do you know you’re getting the best price? With Tetra, there’s no need to compare quotes. We guarantee the best price, every time.  If you find a better quote, we’ll beat it by $300.  If you still want to shop around afterward, you’ll have all the information you need.

2 - Lack of expertise - If you’re not totally sure how your boiler, furnace, or air conditioner works, how to calculate the heating load for your home, or how to decipher efficiency ratings, it takes extra time to work through the information you find. Also, understanding energy rebates and financing takes hours of additional research.

This is another great reason to speak to an expert at the outset. It’s their job to get you helpful, accurate information so you can make the best decision for your home.

3 - Unreliable reviews - On review sites like Angie’s List or Homestars, companies can pay to appear higher in the search results. If you’re looking for an installer, you’re only going to look at the first page or two, which skews the ratings. Using Yelp? Businesses can get in touch with people who write negative reviews and make amends. This means negative reviews can be changed or removed, making it difficult to get the full picture of the company’s history.

Look for companies that provide you with a direct line of contact, offer ongoing support, and guarantee their work. When you work with Tetra, we connect you with an account manager and offer 24/7 phone support before, during, and after installation of your boiler, furnace, or air conditioner. If for any reason you’re unhappy with the service, we’ll refund 100% of your money up to a year after installation.

Whether you’re ready to buy or you’re weighing your options, speak with a Tetra expert today.  You’ll save yourself hours of headaches.
