Tips to Hire an HVAC Contractor

hvac contractor

When you need your furnace, ventilator, or air conditioner replaced or repaired, in most cases you will need to hire an HVAC contractor who is trained and licensed to work on the equipment in your home. An HVAC contractor should be properly trained, insured, and have certifications that comply with professional HVAC procedures.

The professionals at Aire One Heating and Cooling, know that an HVAC system is an important part of every home.

Properly installed and running furnace and air conditioner units are essential for your family’s comfort and safety. Whether you need a new Carrier or York furnace or Mitsubishi or Fujitsu ductless air conditioner, or your current unit needs repairs or maintenance, it is important to hire a company that has qualified contractors.

HVAC professionals generally work with a couple of high-quality brands like York, Carrier, Navien, Mitsubishi, and Fujitsu, and are authorized dealers of those brands. This means you can be sure they know everything about installing the products and have access to parts for repairs, and they know how to maintain your heating and cooling system in the best way.

Another matter you should consider is a maintenance program. A professional heating and cooling company will explain the importance of regularly scheduled maintenance that ensures your Carrier or York system is always running efficiently and safely. Also, Aire One offers emergency services 24 hours 7 days a week, because you want to work with a company that is reliable and will be there when an emergency arises.

The HVAC contractor that you hire should be licensed, bonded, insured, and qualified to perform routine and complex furnace and air conditioner repairs and installations.

HVAC technicians install, maintain, and repair units such as York and Carrier Furnaces, Mitsubishi or York Air Conditioners, Carrier Heat Pumps, Trinity and Carrier Boilers, Aprilaire Humidifiers and Air Purifiers, Navien and Rinnai Water Heaters and Tankless Water Heaters, and Mitsubishi and Fujitsu Ductless Air Conditioners. To ensure the job is done right, look for an HVAC company with these qualifications:

Written bid or estimate

Reputable HVAC contractors will give you a written estimate that they will adhere to.  It should include a list of everything that will be done, as well as the price.

Check reference sites

Check if the HVAC contractor has a decent rating and low volume of customer complaints.

Check Google and reference sites like the Better Business Bureau, and Homestars for reviews and other customers’ experiences.

The right price

The final consideration to make is the estimated price. This should not be your first priority, since an inexperienced technician may offer a low price just to get your business. You want to find someone with the right credentials and experience first. Then, if you have more than one technician with similar qualifications, you can use the price quote to make a final decision.

When checking different companies, do not choose a company because they have the best quote or the cheapest price. HVAC companies will have different sales or promotions that you can look into, but you are going to want to choose a technician based on the quality of the brands offered, the reviews from customers, expertise and more. Don’t settle for less, otherwise you may need to replace your unit within a couple of years.
