How to Find a Good HVAC Contractor
Installing a new furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump—or replacing a failing one—is a big investment. It can cost a good amount of money, so you want to make sure the job gets done right and that you’re hiring a great company. We recommend doing research.
Find not one or two but a handful of companies in your area and check for the following (either online or by calling):
- Licenses, bonds, and insurance – This is probably the most important component—a must-have when it comes to finding the right HVAC company! Unless they are licensed, bonded, and insured, don’t hire them. You don’t want anything to do with a company that can’t provide you their licensing, bonding, and insurance information because it could leave you liable for injuries and cost you a lot more in the long run. We are licensed (# 13VH01741400) and insured—call us to ask more!
- Customer reviews – Reviews are the best way to get honest feedback about a company. Don’t be afraid to ask for testimonials or references. Find out what other clients have to say and what their experience was with the company. Look for a testimonials page on their website—and check sites like Google Plus, Yelp, Angie’s List, etc. Check out what people have said about our services!
- Accreditations – Who knows the ins and outs of heating and cooling better than the manufacturers that produce the equipment? If a company is accredited by manufacturers, that’s a great sign. At Arctic Air Conditioning, not only are we accredited by a manufacturer, we are a Dave Lennox Premier Dealer and have won the Dave Lennox Award, received by only the Top 25 out of 7,500 dealers in North America, multiple times.
- Awards and recognitions – The best HVAC companies are award-winning and recognized by the industry and consumers. Most importantly, a quality AC company will have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). At Arctic Air Conditioning, not only do we have an A+ rating with the BBB, we have also received numerous awards.
One other thing to think about is the price. Saving money is something we all want to do, of course, but if a company is offering you a price way above or way below the average rate, this is a red flag. Although getting a low price on your AC service sounds great, when a company’s price is a lot lower than their competitors’ prices, it sometimes means that they are cutting corners somewhere and you could get less than exemplary service.
