That being said, we want you to know exactly how to choose a HVAC contractor you can trust. Here are some tips on finding the perfect company to work on your behalf.

Ask Around

Don’t let a company’s website fool you. In this day and age anyone can say anything regarding competency. Look for trusty advice from friends and neighbors with real world experience from the contractor in question.

Ask for Proof

Make sure the company is licensed, bonded, and insured. This provides you, the consumer, with added protection and verifies the claims made by said company.

Never Pay Upfront

If a contractor asks for payment BEFORE the work is done, turn around and walk away. This is a sign that you could be saying good-bye to your hard earned money before the work has even started.

Require an In-Person Estimate

Scheduling estimates can be a pain. We know. However, a contractor that says he or she can fix your HVAC unit without seeing it in person is one you should not trust. True professionals take the time to take an exhaustive look at your appliance and see for themselves the issue at hand. If a contractor cannot make the time to see you in person, they probably aren’t right for the job.

Don’t Trust Someone Who Won’t Perform Diagnostics

Sure, your cooling system isn’t functioning at its best. That’s why you called a contractor. Contractors who never perform any diagnostic tests to see if a simple repair will do the job fool many unknowing citizens into thinking they need a replacement HVAC system. A good contractor will check to see if something can be fixed BEFORE they suggest a replacement.
