I don’t know of Maxxelli, relocation agent in China, can help you but these company was very useful for me when I moved to Chengdu. I’m living near the US consulate until June. Their website is: http://www.maxxelli.net, it is very easy to contact them.
I have had some different problems after signing the contract and all the problems were quickly fixed, thanks to Maxxelli. For example, I’ve had a problem with my cooking fire. They even have translated my Chinese washing machine.
I hope you will have a good stay in China and will find a good heating system!
