When you need cooling or heating service repair, seasonal maintenance or a replacement system, it’s time to make an important decision. How do you select a trustworthy and quality heating and cooling contractor?
You don’t want just anybody fiddling with the equipment that keeps you and your family comfortable and safe. Getting a cheaper price from someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing will end up costing you substantially in the future, both in terms of lost comfort, frequent breakdowns and high energy costs.
HVAC Contractors Should Meet These Standards
- Behave and appear professional. An HVAC technician who looks and plays the part has a better chance of competently and reliably fixing, maintaining or installing your heating or cooling system than one who doesn’t.
- Check the HVAC business’s references and professional rankings. Ask friends, coworkers and neighbors for recommendations. Look at testimonials on the contractor’s website. Make sure the business’s technicians have proper certifications in the heating and cooling field, including NATE (North American Technician Excellence).
- If the technician wants to install a furnace or A/C in your home, make sure they explain the process carefully and comprehensively. If they recommend a capacity for your new system without conducting a heating or cooling load calculation, try another contractor.
- If the HVAC contractor tries to give you an estimate for major repair or installation over the phone, try a different contractor. A quality heating/cooling service person will want to come to your home, talk to you about your energy habits and comfort expectations, and inspect your heating and cooling system.
