Check For Licensing and Experience

Your HVAC system is probably one of the most expensive pieces of equipment in your home, so it makes sense to hire someone who knows what they are doing when they come to repair or service it. Look for proper licensing and years of HVAC-specific experience. The company should also be able to hold a minimal level of bonding and insurance to protect homeowners in case of injury or accidental damage. What’s more, you can even ask about certifications the contractors and technicians have. This helps guarantee that a technician’s education and experience are up to date.

Read Reviews Online

Everyone wants the best of the best, so it only makes sense that HVAC companies will use a variety of adjectives to describe their services and their dedication to the craft just to get your money. If you really want to know what a company is like, read their reviews. Look up online reviews on their Google page, look into local forums, and even speak to neighbors or friends who have worked with companies that you are looking into.

Be Wary of the Lowest Bidder

While we all try to save a little money here and there, especially when it comes to expensive appliances, cheaper isn't always best — but you probably knew that. It can feel good to get an HVAC service done at half the cost of your friends or neighbors, but you may be paying the difference in repairs and maintenance. Purchasing an inferior system or hiring inexperienced contractors at a lowered rate ends up with botched installations that will need to be replaced anyway. If the price is too good to be true, it probably is.

Ask for A Written Proposal or Quote

After selecting your HVAC contractor, ask the professional to provide you with a written proposal that you can both review and sign before the work commences. A proposal specifies costs, job schedules, model numbers, warranty information, payment schedules, and any other information that will protect you should a problem arise. It will help keep the contractors accountable, and if they don’t want to provide you with an estimate or a proposal, you should find a new company.
