Many businessmen have the same type model. You get your furnace cleaned and inspected every year by the same family business. He comes and does his work. When it needs fixing, he gives you a decent price and doesn't gouge you. (Yeah, you might find it a bit cheaper elsewhere....but....)

THen when your furnace dies in the big blizzard and it is 20 below zero, when you call as a regular are on his priority list....


Yep. This is what I do with my furnace. I have the same firm who installed it check it once a year and clean it. I could clean it myself, but I'd prefer to be on the firm's regular customer list in case I have an emergency.
