To ensure a quality installation, consult the list of Certified Natural Gas Partners of Énergir
. These independent heating contractors, members of the Corporation of Master Electricians of Quebec, are subject to Énergir’s rigorous quality control.
So that you can thoroughly evaluate what is involved in your project, obtaining two or three quotes from different heating contractors is recommended.
So you can understand the steps involved in the installation and the impacts on your building.
You will thus avoid being surprised by work that seems never-ending.
While it may vary from one contractor to the next, most often, you should be able to find the power, capacity and efficiency of the appliances. This is important since this will help you analyze the quotes received based on your needs.
So that you can precisely analyze each quote. If applicable, the grants applicable to your project should be indicated. Don’t forget that the lowest quote is not always
the best choice. Your analysis must consider all the details of your project.
If the installation work will take some time, make an agreement with the heating contractor to make progress payments.
- Did you know? The Office of Consumer Protection recommends making the last payment (10-15% of the total cost) once the work has been completed. You can thus make sure that the work has been done on time and to your entire satisfaction.
Don’t be afraid of asking questions of the contractors or asking for more details throughout the process. If key items are missing from the quotes you receive, don’t hesitate to ask the contractors for additional information.
