Your heating and air conditioning systems are vital to the comfort of your home. However, if you don't have a good HVAC contractor to do basic repair and maintenance on your units, they could end up running inefficiently, causing discomfort, and costing you money. That's why it's important to interview your prospective professional before hiring, so you ensure you get the best service and expertise.
Interviewing a Prospective HVAC Contractor
1. What Is Your Experience?
The first question to ask your potential HVAC contractor is what kind of training and expertise their technicians have. Before someone works on your home, it’s wise to check their background and their Better Business Bureau® rating. Don't risk your most valuable assets to someone who does not have the necessary training.
2. Are You Licensed & Insured?
While licensing and insurance are usually required by law, it's always smart to double-check. With licensing, you know that your contractor is legally allowed to work on heating and cooling systems in your state, and insurance protects both their employees and your home in case of an accident.
3. What Products Do You Use?
You can also tell a lot about a company by the products they use. Ask them what heating and cooling systems they usually install in their clients' homes. If they use quality systems with high ratings, you’ll know they care about doing a good job.
4. What Services Are Included in Your Estimate?
Any good contractor will offer a free quote before you sign on with them. When they do, check that they clearly specify what their work entails and that there are no hidden fees. It’s always a good idea to get it in writing.
5. Do You Offer Warrantees or Deals?
A contractor who believes in their work and products will offer guarantees. Also, a reputable company develops relationships with their clients; they want to ensure you have the best service and experience, so they’ll usually find ways to save you money when possible.
