What to Consider Before Hiring an HVAC Contractor

Be Prepared Before You Choose Your HVAC Professionals

HVAC company West Chester PA

New HVAC installations and repairs to your current system can both be costly, which is why it’s important to hire an HVAC contractor that you can trust. Before you choose a company, consider these things:

Estimates

Before you choose a contractor, find out if they charge by the hour or by the job and take that into consideration. Then, compare the cost, warranty, and energy efficiency of each new system offer. Make sure you get every estimate in writing so there’s no confusion once it comes time to pay and beware of any contractor who refuses to give you an estimate.

You want an HVAC contractor that is friendly, offers fair prices, and has trained experts that perform quality work. Ask your friends, family, and neighbors whom they trust for their home’s HVAC repairs and installations. You can even ask your potential contractor for phone numbers of past customers to get helpful feedback.

Special Offers

Many HVAC companies will provide special offers monthly, yearly, for a specific service, to new customers, and more, so make sure you ask about current promotions and take them into your price consideration when choosing a contractor.

Home Evaluation

A good HVAC contractor will perform a thorough home evaluation to make sure your home is fit for a new heating or cooling system, to help you decide what kind of system would fit your budget, and where the best place is to install a new one.

License & Insurance

Make sure the HVAC contractor that you’re considering is fully licensed and insured (like we are!). A license will tell you that they are legally allowed to perform work in your home and insurance will make sure that you’re not responsible if a specialist is injured on the job.
