Choosing a heating and cooling contractor is an important decision. Your HVAC system represents a significant investment, and the way that it’s installed and maintained can have a big impact on your utility bills, home comfort and the quality of your indoor air.
So, when choosing a heating and cooling contractor, you don’t want to just pick a name out of the phone book or leave things up to chance. Instead, with just a little bit of research, you can choose based on the facts. Look for a contractor who is:
- NATE-certified. NATE, or North American Technician Excellence, is the testing organization that ensures HVAC technicians are fully trained and qualified to do professional work.
- A member of the ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America).
- In good standing with the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau rates businesses on their business practices and customer service, assigning a letter grade from “F” to “A+.”
- Properly licensed, insured and bonded.
- Experienced, and has a proven history. You want to choose someone who is around for the long term, and not a fly-by-night operation. Having a long history in your area means that they will have seen and solved your particular type of HVAC problem before, and have done so well enough that people have come back to them again and again.
- Able to provide references or testimonials. Past performance is the best indicator of future results, so you want a contractor who has satisfied previous customers. Besides references the company might provide, you can ask people you know about their experiences, and see whether they would recommend choosing the same contractor.
- Willing to earn your business. Each home and HVAC job is unique. A professional contractor will inspect your home and HVAC system, in person, and provide a custom solution that will provide the best results for your specific situation.
