When it comes to the comfort and functionality of your home, you want a reputable HVAC contractor who can handle anything, from adjusting your air conditioning on those sweltering summer days to heating your home during the frosty winter nights. But how do you know you’re choosing the right person for the job? In this blog post, we’ll share some of the ‘green flags’ to look for when hiring an HVAC contractor.
Licensed, Bonded and Insured
A reputable HVAC contractor will be fully licensed, bonded and insured. If something goes amiss during your project, this protection extends to the contractor and you, the homeowner.
The contractor’s degree of professionalism is often a telltale green flag. This includes timely communication, respect for your property and delivering on what they say they’ll do.
Positive Online Reviews
Look for residential heating and cooling services providers with a strong online reputation. High-rated reviews on trusted platforms such as Google, Yelp or Angie’s List can provide potent insight into the contractor’s performance and customer service.
Strong Local Reputation
Along with online reviews, a good reputation within the local community is a green flag. A local contractor servicing the community for years likely has valid references and a vested interest in maintaining high service standards.
Transparency in Pricing
An HVAC contractor who offers a clear, itemized quotation with a detailed cost breakdown before the work begins shows financial transparency and is reliable.
Certifications and Partnerships
A green flag is the contractor’s relevant certifications and industry memberships, such as North American Technician Excellence, Environmental Protection Agency certification or membership with local HVAC associations.
Offers Home Evaluation
Before giving a quotation, reliable contractors perform a thorough home evaluation to determine the right HVAC systems for your home size, insulation levels and other factors.
Provides a Written Contract
HVAC contractors who provide you with a written contract detailing the scope of work, costs and timeline are considered reliable and trustworthy.
