Little can cause more panic than when your HVAC system comes to a screeching halt. Little brings more relief than knowing you have a reliable HVAC company’s phone number at the ready. You need only dial the number, and you know a professional will have your system up and running shortly.
The HVAC service you use will determine how well and efficiently your HVAC will run, but how do you know if you have a good HVAC company?
By the time you’ve finished reading this article, you’ll know exactly how to determine if an HVAC company is worth your time or not.
Begin by checking all the reviews you can find about your chosen HVAC company. A good heating and cooling company won’t need to advertise much. They’ll have excellent online reviews on social media.
Read both the positive and negative reviews for HVAC maintenance and repair so you know what to expect.
Check with your neighbors, friends, and family as well. You’re not the only person with an HVAC, and you’re most likely not the only person who has needed an HVAC repair. Locals will know which local companies you can rely on.
Go to the Better Business Bureau as well to read reviews and ratings for the company you’re researching. They’ll have plenty of information on the reputation of your company.
Do not settle for the first company you find or the cheapest bid. Pair a good company with an affordable bid. The bids reveal the quality of the work you’ll receive including materials as well as reliability.
Remember that the lowest bid may reflect poor materials as well. Companies can afford to do work cheaply because they use cheap materials. They also may simply be desperate for work and then will cut corners to get the job done.
Beware of ultra-low bids. Look for reasonable bids that you can afford.
Only hire an HVAC contractor with proper licenses and certifications. Ask the company about their workers’ training, and make sure the company you hire is insured and bonded. Proper insurance and bonding protect you if something goes wrong as the contractor works on your system.
Never hire a company that isn’t properly insured or bonded. If a company is functioning without proper insurance and bonding, it could be operating illegally. That alone makes them suspicious.
You can trust an HVAC company that has the right credentials and reviews. Make sure the contractors have proper training as well as insurance and bonding. If the company you’re looking at does not have these qualities, do not hire them.
