There’s no place like your own home. You expect it to be cozy and comfortable to your lifestyle. So, when it’s time to service, repair or replace an essential home system, such as your HVAC unit, you want the peace of mind and confidence that you’re hiring the right HVAC contractor. However, with so many to choose from, how do you know you’re inviting the right company to your home?
Well, here are some great tips to help you make the best decision.
Aboveboard Business Practices
Work with an HVAC contractor that adheres to local and state laws, and to industry best business practices. The last thing you need is to be held financially responsible should an accident occur on your property. That’s possible if your contractor isn’t fully insured. Moreover, depending on the type of work you need completed, only a licensed contractor can pull permits.
Credentials to Look For
Look for a contractor that is a certified dealer of a reputable HVAC manufacturer. This distinction carries a lot of weight to the integrity, experience and knowledge of your contractor. Next, check with your local Better Business Bureau to make sure prospective contractors are listed with an “A” or “A+” rating.
Keeping in time with the digital age of the Internet, the HVAC industry is continually developing and introducing new technologies that offer greater performance and efficiency. Is your technician up to the task? Make sure your contractor requires ongoing education, such as proven with NATE certification, for his or her technicians.
When you’re interviewing prospective HVAC contractors, ask for references of recent and local work. Additionally, you can check with reputable
Ultimately, your HVAC repair or replacement is only as good as the contract you sign, the workmanship guarantee and the manufacturer’s warranty backing it up. Make sure that written estimates and work orders are easy to understand for you.
