Guide To Finding An HVAC Professional
Not all HVAC contractors are created equal. When searching for an expert, there are some basic things to check to eliminate many of the sub-standard companies. First, make certain they are insured. You can ask for the name of their insurance company and call to verify that their coverage is current or ask them to provide a Certificate of Insurance.
Next, be aware that many states require HVAC contractors be licensed. To find out if your state requires a license, you can check the state’s webpage. If it is required, ask to see their current license – also noting that some counties and cities also require additional licenses. Also, check with the Better Business Bureau or the Attorney General’s office for your state to see if any complaints have been filed.
Lastly, always ask for at least three references from previous customers. Take the time to call or stop by and look at their work. When you have a list of three approved professionals, you can begin to get quotes for your project and feel secure that you will find the best value.
