Ask for referrals
Ask your friends, family, neighbours and coworkers for referrals before deciding upon a contractor for your heating and cooling needs. Good word-of-mouth and a sound reputation can be your best indicators that the company will provide you with the professional service you require.
Do all of the appropriate research – you’ll thank yourself in the long run
Find out about all local and national requirements, including licenses and insurance information to make sure whomever you hire meets the proper conditions. Before you begin calling contractors, familiarize yourself with your current operating system and its maintenance history so you will feel comfortable with asking – and answering – questions about it.
Ask for and call references
Ask for references from the contractors and be sure to call them. Reputable contractors should be able to provide you with a healthy list of references as well as credentials.
Get written, itemized estimates
When comparing proposals, this will make it easier for you to compare bids, warranties and costs. Make sure you take into consideration both quantitative and qualitative components including overall cost-efficiency and performance to select the company that will get the job done best to meet your needs.
