The Top 3 Things to Help You Find the Right HVAC Service Contractor

As we approach the colder winter months, many homeowners are scheduling furnace tune-ups. Regular yearly tune-ups bring peace of mind, can help reduce energy costs, ensure that your unit remains under warranty, and guarantee air quality in your home. Now that you’ve decided it’s time for an HVAC tune-up, how do you know whom to hire?

Here are a few things to help you find the right technician to work on your HVAC system:

Licensed and insured. Nearly every state requires technicians to be licensed. Be sure to grab the license number from any contractor you contact so that you can do some research through your state contractor licensing board. Also, ensuring that the contractor has both workers compensation and liability insurance will help guarantee that all parties are protected in the unlikely event that something happens while they’re working on your home.

Experience. Reputable companies have licensed, background-check approved technicians that receive ongoing training. Be sure to ask for customer references and check their social media pages to read experiences from other consumers. Any reputable service company will willingly provide you with recommendations and references – it’s a red flag if they don’t.

Refunds, warranties and guarantees. If your HVAC unit is still under part warranty with the manufacturer, your technician should be sure to honor those terms. If your unit is past the warranty, then the technician should provide you with an estimate for repair and explain replacement options so you are able to make a well-informed decision. Before signing on the dotted line, be sure to ask about refunds, guarantees, and warranties. Once you have a chance to confirm these details, be sure that your technician provides you with an estimate that outlines the agreed upon work that will be done.
