Tips for Choosing the Best HVAC Contractor for Your Needs

If you’ve made the decision to have an HVAC system installed or you’ve discovered that you need to have your air conditioning unit serviced, you don’t want just anyone working on your air conditioning system. When the time comes for you to choose a contractor for air conditioning repair or service, you want to be sure that the company you hire employs only technicians who are qualified to do the job and who understand the complexities of modern air conditioning units. Neighbors wants to share some tips on what to look for in companies for heating and cooling in Ames, IA:

Get recommendations. You may want to start by getting references from individuals you know. If you’ve used a specific HVAC contractor in the past, that’s a good place to get a quote for consideration.

Only Consider Those That Come Out to See Your System. The American Council for Energy Efficient Economy recommends that individuals definitely ignore companies that offer to give a quote without seeing your HVAC unit.  It stands to reason that if they are willing to cut corners in giving you an estimate, they might be prone to cutting corners as they work on your HVAC system, which could cause problems.

Get Estimates from Multiple Companies and Check Their Licenses. Don’t depend on a single company if you haven’t worked with it in the past. Reputable companies are licensed and are willing to show you that credential. If a contractor comes to your home for an estimate and refuses to give licensure information, that raises red flags.

Use the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s locator to find ACCA-approved HVAC contractors. This nonprofit association writes and designs the standards for design, maintenance and installation of air conditioning and HVAC systems.

Take a Good Look Online. You can learn a lot about a company and its contractors by visiting the company’s website, which most have these days. Look for badges, credentials, license numbers, associations, how long they have been in business, and take a few moments to look at some of the referrals and comments from past customers.

Geothermal energy is the smarter way to heat and cool your home or business – it's efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. It's tough to get much greener than a GeoComfort system. Just ask the EPA – they concluded geothermal energy is the most environmentally friendly heating and cooling system.
