How to Choose an HVAC Repair Company

by | Dec 14, 2020 | HVAC System, Tips and Advice

Not every heating and air conditioning company is created equal. Learning to choose the best HVAC company is critical. If the unit you’re currently using is more than ten years old, it might be time to find a local HVAC company. We all want a comfortable temperature inside the house. Your air conditioning company will help you maintain that comfort. In this guide, we’re offering tips to help consumers evaluate local heating and air conditioning companies to find the best one.

Professional Licensing

Licensing is critical for HVAC contractors since they work with complex parts of your home, including plumbing, electrical, and gas lines. You can determine if a contractor has proper licensing by visiting their website. Is it marked on the majority of their site’s pages? If they’re posting literature, can you find the company’s licensing within that information? If not, then that’s an indication of needing to find a different local HVAC professional. You can also ask the contractor for proof of their licensing and certifications. 

Reviews and References

Ask for at least three or more references from the contractor and then contact them. During these conversations, ask the references if the heating and air conditioning company could complete the job on-time and within budget. 

Use the internet to conduct searches for each heating and air conditioning company to see if they have ratings or complaints. Use reputable websites for this research. Otherwise, you may encounter fake reviews. Be suspicious of reviews giving high praise without details or negative reviews that fail to provide specifics.

Energy-efficient Offerings

You want the highest level of efficiency for heating and cooling your home. Shopping for an upgrade means finding the most efficient unit you can afford. Any professional HVAC contractor can install a unit so it runs efficiently. However, your goal is to get the most for your money.

Name Recognition

Aside from getting recommendations from people you trust, name recognition is another solid indicator of experience and quality. While it’s not a fail-safe that guarantees a problem-free installation, selecting a company that is well-known in your local area as the go-to HVAC service can be a smart move. A local company relies on its reputation, so one that has built a solid reputation servicing your area for many years has, at the very least, continuously provided satisfactory service.

Written, In-person Estimates

You should receive an estimate from an HVAC contractor in person. The contractor can’t complete the necessary calculations during a phone conversation. They also can’t consider all of the factors required for installation when they’re on the phone with you. They must determine if there are enough registers in each room and if the ductwork needs work. Other factors include seeing what kind of windows you have installed in each room and determining the type of insulation you’re using.
