Top Five Things To Look For When Hiring An HVAC Contractor

When it comes to heating, cooling and ventilation needs, you may be tempted to hire a handyman or find a DIY solution on the internet. However, hiring a skilled HVAC contractor is most cost-effective and efficient method of getting issues resolved. While a handyman or DIY way may seem cheaper, it could create problems that end up costing you time and money in the long run while, most importantly, compromising your safety.

Trained technicians will be able to assess your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) requirements, maintain or repair your air conditioning, heating system or refrigeration. They will treat your safety with the highest priority, while advising and accurately assessing any HVAC issues in your home or office.

If you’re in the process of looking for an HVAC contractor, here’s a list of five aspects that will make your search for an HVAC professional easier.

1. Expertise.

Hire a company that not only has qualified service technicians on their staff but is also committed to updating their knowledge and honing their skills through ongoing training.

2. Quality of work.

Ask for references and talk to past clients about their experiences. If the company you’re considering won’t give them to you, you don’t want them working for you as their quality of work may be questionable.

3. Exceptional service.

Does the company offer a twenty-four-hour service? What is their response time and how long does it take to get repairs completed once they have been approved? These are two essential questions to ask your HVAC contractor as while you never want your system to break down, if it does, you want your service company to fix it as quickly as possible.

4. Insurance.

If the HVAC company you are considering doesn’t possess an Insurance Certificate and a WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) Clearance Certificate, it’s best you find another company that does. Having insurance and a WSIB Clearance Certificate ensures that you are protected as a customer and that the company is certified in every aspect of the job.

5. Fair pricing.

The adage “You get what you pay for” holds true in HVAC services as it does in most other things. While you may be able to save a buck or two in the short term by going with the cheapest contractor, the price you will likely end up paying is much more in the long run.
