Hiring An HVAC Contractor: An Easy Assignment If You Follow These 9 Tips

When it’s time to hire an HVAC contractor for repair, installation or retrofit, conduct your search carefully by following these nine tips:

  • Write down the services you are seeking. Make a note of problem areas, like rattling ducts, uneven cooling and anything else about which you have questions. Seemingly unrelated problems are often connected. Also, take time to research permits and licensing requirements.
  • Friends, family and co-workers are excellent resources from which to begin your search, but you can also utilize the Internet. A professional HVAC contractor should have company information and resources available on their web site.
  • Ask for at least three references from the HVAC contractor. When you call the references, ask if the job was completed on time, on budget and to their complete satisfaction. Research the contractor’s Better Business Bureau rating.
  • Find a reputable HVAC contractor with competitive prices, and one that offers seasonal specials and assistance for utility rebates.
  • Choose a contractor that offers the latest HVAC equipment and technologies, such as Energy Star-qualified products, which will benefit you in terms of long-term comfort and energy savings.
  • Your HVAC contractor should maintain professional affiliations that promote business and industry best practices, such as the ACCA, and employ NATE-certified technicians. NATE is the gold standard for certification in the HVAC industry.
  • You should expect a thorough evaluation of your home for relevant HVAC repairs or installation, including duct inspection, insulation and heating and cooling system.
  • Evaluate the contractor’s service plans. To keep your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently for years to come, you’ll want a good plan with a service warranty that includes no overtime charges.
  • No work should begin before you thoroughly review the contract and sign it. Verify the cost of the project, the equipment to be installed, and all warranties and guarantees.
