4 Tips to Hire a HVAC Contractor
Any time someone is going to be at your home and around your family, it’s really important that you only bring in the best of the best. This includes hiring a HVAC contractor. Not only are you inviting this person into your home, you are also trusting him or her to be honest and fair when it comes to repairs and costs. How can you find the company and know you’ve brought in the right technician? It’s not as impossible as it sounds!
#1 Ask friends and neighbors for a recommendation. There’s nothing quite like word of mouth advertising to know you can trust someone. If your neighbor has used a HVAC company and felt they did a good job, this company will probably do the same kind of work for you too. Ask your friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers for who they use when they need HVAC work done. If you don’t know anyone who lives around you, you can also check reference sites like the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, Google My Business, Next Door Neighbor, and Yelp for reviews.
#2 Check their license, insurance, and other certifications. You can typically see a company’s licenses and certifications on their website. Knowing that your chosen HVAC company is certified by groups like NATE means your technician has passed quality and knowledge standards. You’ll also want to inquire about their insurance. After all, if they accidentally cause damage or are hurt while they’re at your house, you don’t want to be stuck paying for it! Repairing and installing HVAC units can be pretty hazardous. That is why it’s important your company is covered by general liability and workers’ compensation.
#3 Get It in writing. When a technician comes in for a service call, the cost for repair and/or installation can easily add up quickly. It’s easy to be overwhelmed and disappointed. Get everything they recommend, like the estimate for the repair, in writing. Ask that the technician is as specific as possible. This way, you can look it all over once they leave and you can concentrate.
#4 Get a second opinion. If you are told you need an expensive repair or a new unit to be installed, this probably isn’t the news you were hoping to hear. Don’t be afraid to ask for a second opinion by another company. Have their technician look at the same problem and get their estimate in writing so you can compare. If there is a discrepancy, ask why one estimate may differ from another.
