5 Tips on How to Choose the Right HVAC Company

Are you searching for an HVAC company to replace or repair your system? Choosing the best HVAC company is a priority. Even with a new HVAC system, choosing a reliable and knowledgeable HVAC company to take care of upkeep will help extend the life of your unit and keep it performing its best throughout the year. Read these 5 tips to ponder while selecting a HVAC contractor:

1.     Read Reviews Online

You want the best, but how can you be 100% sure the contractor will provide it? One of the best ways to ensure high quality work in the future is to look at previous reviews of the HVAC business. Our company, Air Pros Heating & Cooling in Charleston, SC, takes pride in the work we do and the good standing we’ve earned in our cities. Look up online reviews, to see what customers have said. Did the technicians arrive on time and complete the repair? Did the company test the unit and respect the homeowner’s property? Keep in mind that some websites like Yelp will filter their reviews. Google is more dependable on reviews are unfiltered and no one is paid for making recommendations.

2.     Get a Written Estimate in Person

Caution! If a company provides an estimate while on the phone with them, this is a bad sign. No heating or cooling system, problem, or space can be fully understood by a technician over the phone. There are many reasons that contribute to the services needed such as duct work, insulation, etc. The condition must be addressed in person to comprehend the issue. The company should be willing to invest the time, energy, and gas to come properly inspect the house and provide a written estimate in person.

3.     Licensed and Insured

Always hire a company that is licensed and insured. At Air Pros Heating & Cooling, we understand how essential professional training and expertise is. South Carolina requires licensing for HVAC contractors which requires years of experience and proper insurance to protect homeowners. HVAC work is highly technical and requires a level of skill and knowledge to perform well. Don’t be shy to ask about the prospective contractor’s certifications and experience before you hire them.

4.     Beware the Lowest Bidder

Cheapest is not always best. When it comes to HVAC systems, skimping never pays off in the long run. Purchasing an inferior system or hiring inexperienced contractors at a lowered rate ends up costing you more over time. Botched installations have to be fixed and failing systems replaced. If the price is too good to be true, it usually is. Some unlicensed contractors may even be using stolen equipment. It’s always better to pay to have the job done properly the first time.

5.     Rebates and Specials

HVAC systems are expensive. It’s always a good idea to be on the lookout for rebates or special offers. Ask the prospective HVAC company if they offer any dealer specials or sales. They should be knowledgeable about any possible rebates you can receive for installing energy efficient equipment in your state.
