You rely on your home to provide you with shelter as a safe, comfortable place to live and enjoy life. It protects you from the elements and helps you to weather the storms of life.
But you probably don’t think much about your HVAC system until it’s time for repairs, maintenance or an upgrade. However, it’s a big part of the comfort level in your home and even your health. And without it, your house no longer feels like the secure shelter it once was.
Your HVAC system is needed all year round for the changing seasons (especially to make it through the long summers of Louisiana). Its reliability is the key to feeling at home all the time. But to have a reliable HVAC system, you’ll need HVAC company you can count on first.
How do you know that you can rely on your HVAC company? We have a list of great signs to help you find a company that’s there for you when you need them the most.
What to Look For in Your HVAC Company
This one comes first for a reason. No matter how nice your HVAC workers may be, if they’re not experienced, they won’t be able to get the job done.
A good HVAC company should have a long track record of working with systems like your own and understand the needs of your community. Always ask to see a portfolio or list of recommendations before signing on with a new company.
How does the company treat their customers and employees? Are they transparent about prices, timelines and policies? These are things to watch out for during the initial meeting. Be sure to ask about liability and workers’ compensation insurance before agreeing to a project.
A professional HVAC company will be responsive to emergencies and have professional working standards. When you’re going to let someone into your home on a regular basis, you want to have someone onsite who is trustworthy.
It pays to do your due diligence up front and ask for any estimates or agreements to be put in writing.
It’s important for HVAC contractors to be knowledgeable about the latest developments in their field and popular systems. An expert company will be able to offer you maintenance programs, work on long- term projects and have the credentials to back up their assertions.
Make sure the company is forthcoming about warranties and a member of professional organizations.
Lastly, you can’t forget the importance of a company’s reputation. Start by checking the Better Business Bureau for reviews and information. Next, look to see if they’ve earned any accolades in the community.
You want an HVAC company that’s well-known and established, not a “here today, gone tomorrow” kind of organization.
