When it comes to choosing an HVAC contractor for your home, the last thing you want to do is go with one you’re not comfortable with. After all, this is the company that you’ll be entrusting with your home comfort. To help you out, we’ve compiled some of our favorite tips to make your search easier:
Get Help from People You Know
If you check around with people you know — family, friends, and co-workers, for example — your search for a reputable HVAC contractor may be over before it gets started. Ask them for an honest opinion.
Pay Attention to How You’re Treated
Businesses are often slammed with service requests, but that’s no excuse for poor service when you contact them for help. You deserve to be treated with respect, and in a timely matter. Anything less is unacceptable.
Inquire About NATE Certification
NATE (North American Technician Excellence) is currently celebrating its 20th year and is just as relevant now as it was at its inception. NATE-certified technicians have been throughly tested to ensure the best possible service and care.
Take a Look at Their Online Presence
Most businesses these days at least have a Facebook account, but some have a presence on forums like Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Take a look at those where comments are possible and see if they conduct themselves in a professional manner.
Check for Industry Knowledge
Every HVAC contractor will have knowledge of the industry, but what we’re referring to is evolving technologies and techniques. If they keep up with current knowledge, they’re more likely to save you money on utility bills.
Ask About Contracts
Once an HVAC contractor has been selected for a project, it’s important that the ensuing contract include certain details. Things like expected completion time and cost are a given, but the contract should also cover how to handle changes to the project and any problems that may arise.
