Whether you are looking to schedule maintenance for an air conditioning unit or you need to have a new heating system installed, it’s understandable that you want the peace of mind that comes with hiring an experienced and well-trained professional to do the job. But how do you tell a good HVAC contractor from a poor one?

Check for Proper Licensing

Always ask your HVAC contractor for their business license and insurance information, and then check to verify that the information is accurate. This will give you the peace of mind that if something goes wrong during your job—no matter what it is—you will not be held financially accountable for the incident. Accidents happen to even the best of us, so it’s vital that you know your HVAC contractor will cover any damages that may occur.


What type of education does your HVAC contractor have? Do they stay up to date on innovations and changes in the industry? Most HVAC companies will require a technical degree from a vocational training program or some other type of similar training or education. Your HVAC contractor must be knowledgeable about HVAC technology, EPA regulations, and maintenance and repair procedures.


You wouldn’t commit to buying a car before you knew and verified its cost, so don’t go into an HVAC job with that type of negligence either. Ensure that you get an estimate in writing. True, it’s still only an estimate, but having an itemized list to go off of means that you are dealing with an honest company and you’ll know what to expect when you get the bill. You can count on our team to offer fair and reasonable prices for our products and services!
