7 Tips That Will Make Finding an HVAC Contractor Easy

It’s time to make a decision. Do you really want to worry if your old worn out HVAC system will last another winter? But with so many companies out there offering all kinds of “too good to be true” offers, how do you go about finding an HVAC contractor?

  • First, it’s important to be proactive. Do your homework. Get on-line and start researching systems that will comfortably heat and cool your square footage. Then seriously consider the extras. Many of the newer systems have controls for everything from humidity levels to remote operating systems.
  • Once you have a general idea of the system you are interested in, go to for any special offers that may be available. ENERGY STAR HVAC systems frequently come with great rebates.
  • It’s so important to get references. Maybe your neighbor or a guy at work just had a new system installed, check with them and see if they were happy with their HVAC contractor. Then go on-line and make sure they measure up. These days there are plenty of websites to assist in checking references.
  • Once you have an HVAC contractor in mind don’t hesitate to ask for the names and contact information of some of their past clients. If a contractor is reputable, he should be more than happy to share this information.
  • Always get more than one written, signed and dated estimate. Then make sure you are comparing “apples to apples” including energy efficiency, unit size and warranties.
  • After finding an HVAC contractor that meets your needs again get everything in writing. Pay close attention to things like the model number, when the job will start and be finished, cost breakdown and payment requirements.
  • Once your system is installed and up and running it’s time to brag. Share your good fortune in both the HVAC system you selected and the professional contractor that handled your installation.
