Finding a quality service provider for your home is equally important as choosing the right HVAC system.
You’ve had enough with the weather conditions in your area and you’ve finally decided, it’s time to install your first HVAC system. Congratulations! Before you start spending your hard earned money on the latest technological trends, take some time to be realistic and identify your needs when it comes to the heating and cooling of your home. Do some good old-fashioned research in order to choose the right system for your home. After deciding on a brand and model, the next most important step is to find the right person to install it! The market is full of companies offering their services, but not all of them are the right fit for you and your circumstances. Follow these simple five steps to make sure the company you are looking to hire is indeed worthy of your trust.
There is no better way of finding out who to hire than asking your friends and family if they had a satisfactory experience with a company or a certified HVAC technician.
If you are new to the area, try searching the web for companies with good references. Use online forums and research the websites of companies you are considering. Check their blogs, the FAQ section if they have one, and read the testimonials from other customers. Do your homework.
Your contractor needs to have an appropriate license, as well as a contract license surety bond that serves as insurance in case something goes wrong with your agreement. It’s wise to ask for your contractor’s credentials in order to check if the company is qualified to install the model you’ve selected for your home.
Although it might seem quicker and easier to communicate with your potential contractor over the phone, try to arrange all the specifics via email because that way you will have a written trace of your agreements for future reference.
Your contractor needs to specify several important details in a binding contract, the most important information being the dates when work will be performed, a list of all the costs, a payment schedule and a deadline for the completion of your project.
