When something goes wrong with your HVAC system, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the entire process of heating or cooling replacement. Finding the right company isn’t simply a matter of choosing the lowest of the HVAC system installation quotes. You want to consider quality and value as well.
Tips for Choosing the Right Quote
Your first step is to get quotes from several reputable HVAC companies. You may be tempted to go with the first affordable quote, but making the extra effort will pay off in the end. Once you have a few quotes to choose from, use the following tips to evaluate all of the HVAC system installation quotes to find the best option.
- Ask for local references
- Check for the length of time the company has been in business
- Ensure the HVAC company has the correct professional certifications, licenses and memberships
- Ask about customer support and preventative maintenance
- Look for product warranties of at least one year for labor and 5 to 10 years for part
- Confirm the company’s good reputation
Of course, the best advice is to trust your gut feeling. If a company seems to good to be true, then they probably are. A quality heating and cooling company should meet and exceed the expectations listed above.
