How to Hire an HVAC Expert

It is stressful enough when your home’s air conditioner begins to act up during the heat of a West Michigan summer. The last thing you need to be fretting about is the HVAC contractor who is going to come to your home to repair or replace it. You want to feel confident that not only is the contractor competent, but also trustworthy.

We stand ready to assist you with all of your HVAC needs, but we understand if you want to do your homework and compare. Here are some tips to consider when you are hiring a contractor for AC repair or replacement:

Ask About Licenses & Insurance

Many states and municipalities require HVAC contractors to hold licenses and training that ensures they have the required education and on-the-job experience they need. Part of the licensing process also includes adequate bonding and insurance.

Check References

Professional HVAC companies should gladly provide you with recent customers who can verify that the contractor did a good job in a timely and professional manner. Call them and get a first-hand review.

Check Experience

If you have specific system needs – such as geothermal – it is important to know that your contractor has relevant experience in that area. Like we said earlier in this blog, there simply is no substitute for longevity, which lends itself to the accumulation of years of experience dealing with a myriad of HVAC issues.

Ask About Tax Incentives & Rebates

Your HVAC replacement may qualify for state or federal tax rebates and incentives, so make sure you ask the contractor and do a little homework on your own.
