A Primer on Hiring HVAC Contractors

HVAC system on the fritz again? Have an HVAC contractor inspect it as soon as possible. Here’s a quick guide on hiring one: 

Ask for Referrals 

You can ask friends and family for referrals to come up with a shortlist of potential HVAC contractors. However, don’t take their word for it—you should always do your research on a contractor, even if they’re highly recommended by people you know. 

Skim Through Online Reviews 

You can start by skimming through online reviews. Keep in mind that a bad review isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker. What’s important is how the contractor responded to the complaint. Arguably, this gives you a better idea of their level of professionalism than a positive review. 

Check Their Online Presence 

Don’t just rely on third-party websites for online reviews. It’d be a good idea if you can check their website or social media page as well. Nowadays, there’s just no excuse for a contractor not to have a website. The absence of a website is a red flag in itself. 

Check Their Certifications

Make sure to look for proof of certification on their website. Certifications are proof a contractor underwent professional courses and satisfactorily passed stringent. You can also check how long they’ve been in the HVAC industry. The number of years they’ve been working in the industry should give you a good idea of a contractor’s level of expertise. 

Give Them a Call 

Once you’ve narrowed down your list, give each one a call to ask for an estimate. Don’t forget to ask them a few questions about their experience. You can ask them about the brands they’ve worked with as well as the kinds of services they offer, such as air conditioning repair and troubleshooting.
