Tuesday Tips: HVAC Contractor Hiring Tips

“There’s no place like home”, so why leave it in inexperienced hands? When installing a HVAC system, a homeowner should trust the contractor to get the job done in an efficient and timely manner. To help guarantee you get your desired results, we’ve gathered some tips for hiring a heating and cooling contractor. Please see the following:

  • Study up. Educate yourself about the licenses and insurance requirements for contractors within the state of Texas. Prior to calling your contractor, know the model of your current HVAC system. you should also be familiar with it’s maintenance history. Gathering as much information as possible will allow your contractor to best identify and address the problem at hand.
  • Ask a friend for a referral. Do you have a neighbor who is satisfied with their HVAC unit? Ask them about their contractor’s installation performance.
  • Ask for references. Contact your contractor and ask for a reference.
  • Search for special offers. An HVAC system is a big home purchase. Keep costs at a minimum by searching for deals and rebates.
  • Expect a home evaluation. Your contractor should spend time evaluating your current system and should size the heating and cooling system based on the size of your house. Your duct system should also be inspected for air leaks and insulation. If your contractor fails to do this, it may be time to switch to a more reliable servicer.
  • Get a written estimate. Compare cost, energy efficiency, and warranties to find the best option for your home.
