Whether you’re in the middle of an emergency, or simply need your HVAC system maintained, you need an HVAC technician who will get the job done quickly and professionally. But how do you find someone you can trust? Here are a few tips.
- Ask about their experience.
The more years of experience an HVAC technician has under their belt, the more confident you’ll feel in their service and expertise. With experience comes advice you can trust, which means they’re more likely to know all there is to know about malfunctioning HVAC systems — as well as the right solutions.
HVAC companies release new systems every year. Experienced HVAC technicians keep up with these changes and know the strengths and weaknesses of these systems. Their insight could be useful for homeowners looking to replace their HVAC system.
- Make sure they have a valid contractor’s license and insurance.
Just because someone claims to have experience repairing HVAC systems, doesn’t mean they’re legally qualified to do the job. However, if something goes wrong and the HVAC technician isn’t licensed or insured, you may end up having to cover the costs. But if a licensed and bonded HVAC technician engages in unfair dealings, customers have the legal ability to seek compensation from the insurance company and to report the contractor to the state licensing board.
- Depending on the job, ask to see the permits.
Certain jobs, such as installing a new HVAC unit, may require permits. Before signing the contract, find out if the job requires permits and ask if the HVAC technician will obtain those permits on your behalf.
- Look for technicians servicing environmentally-friendly units.
HVAC companies are creating more and more units that are environmentally-friendly and offer significant energy savings. An experienced HVAC technician should know how to repair these types of units and have the ability to answer any questions you may have about purchasing an environmentally-friendly system.
- Evaluate the customer experience.
Repairing your HVAC unit shouldn’t be a nightmare. The company should be reliable, professional, and offer exceptional customer service. Read customer reviews to get a sense of the company’s approach to service.
