Questions to ask a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

Before you select a heating and air conditioning company to service your HVAC units, ask the right questions in order to ensure you are getting the right company for the job. Choosing the right company is one of the most important things you can do to make sure your family stays comfortable when it is too hot or too cold outside. Your heating and air conditioning systems should work for many years to heat, cool, and clean the air in your house if you use the right company to help you maintain and fix the units along the way.

The first thing you will want to know about any heating and air conditioning company you consider is whether the company is insured, licensed, and bonded. Any heating and air conditioning company should be able to show you a copy of the insurance coverage they carry as well as the licenses they hold. Those licenses should be standard for your area and the insurance also needs to have a certain limit for it to be legal.

If you have not visited the heating and air conditioning company in person, ask what type of operation they have. If they operate from a garage or even a truck, these companies may not be best for you. They might have low prices, but low prices are not always best when it comes to your heating and air conditioning units. Make sure they have their own facility that you can visit with questions, to pay bills, or to speak with representatives.

It is also wise to ask the heating and air conditioning company to provide you with references before you make a final decision. References from past customers can give you a wealth of information and you can ask questions you may not be comfortable asking the company representative. When you get a hold of a reference, ask if the company treated them well and if the service providers were on time. Ask how they felt about the value of the work versus the price they were charges and whether or not they would recommend the company to someone else.

You can also check into the various heating and air conditioning companies by looking at their standing with the Better Business Bureau and even local outlets like the Chamber of Commerce. If there are any complaints lodged with any of these industries, you might want to be wary of hiring the company yourself.

Last, ask about a maintenance service option with any heating and air conditioning company. These service options can help you gain access to warranties you might otherwise void and they can also help your units run clean and efficiently for a much longer period of time. Companies that offer them really know what is best for your heating and air conditioning systems.
