What to Look For in a Heating and Cooling Company
You know that you need an HVAC expert but you don’t know where to find one or how to pick.
First, try asking for recommendations. Talk to friends or neighbors to see if they have an HVAC technician that helped them with similar heating and cooling issues.
If you don’t have luck getting a recommendation, do a quick search for local heating and cooling companies. You can search directly or use a third-party service site.
Then, look at their websites for reviews and ratings from other customers. You may also be able to locate references for the company that you could contact to ask questions. Above all, make sure that the HVAC company is certified and that they have insurance.
If your current situation is an emergency, look for an HVAC company that can come right away. If you have some time, you can request service from the heating and cooling company online or over the phone. Be as specific as possible in your request form so that the company can provide you with better service.
What to Ask Your HVAC Technician
Once you’ve identified a reliable HVAC company an HVAC technician will usually come in person to check it out. If they need to complete work on your heating or cooling system, ask for a written quote.
Without a quote, you could end up paying a lot more money than you anticipated to fix the problem.
Your HVAC technician should also be able to tell you what the issue was and what you may be able to do to prevent it from happening again. The best heating and cooling companies have knowledgeable and friendly technicians that want to help you.
Before the technician leaves ask for a card or phone number in case you have questions or if you have another HVAC problem in the future.
