Picking the right HVAC contractor should be a top priority when you experience problems with your heating or cooling system. So many HVAC contractors make big promises they can’t keep after receiving your money. Rather than experience the headaches of working with the wrong contractor, research options first and find experts that coincide with your needs.
What to Look for in an HVAC Contractor
Always look for a contractor carrying a license and insurance. Contractors without license and insurance perform some of the same services as licensed contractors but hiring them puts a big risk on your back. If a problem occurs during the project, you have no recourse to get back the money. Hire an HVAC contractor carrying a license and insurance to avoid the risks.
Also look for contractors that:
- Have experience
- Stand behind their work with guarantees and/or warranties
- Has reasonable rates and special offers
- Does not pressure you
- Is professional, genuine, and prompt
How to Choose an HVAC Contractor
Ask for referrals from HVAC contractors of interest. A good contractor should easily be able to provide the names and email addresses or telephone numbers of at least three previous clients. Check out referrals but do not stop there.
Ask trusted people in your life for HVAC contractor recommendations. Friends, family, coworkers, church members, and others can send us in the direction of a great contractor and minimize some of the headaches we’d otherwise experience narrowing down the search.
The web has tons of information related to area HVAC contractors. Scour this information, looking for reviews, social media pages, and other relevant information that can give you a better idea of what to expect if you choose that particular contractor.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) can also help narrow down the selection of HVAC contractors in the pool. The BBB provides companies with a letter grade based on their work performance/quality and response to complaints. Heed the information found from the BBB.
