How to Hire a Reputable HVAC Contractor
- Start by asking relatives, friends and neighbors if they have used someone they would recommend.
- Check the ACCA, Air Conditioning Contractors of America, site to for a list of companies in the area that are certified by NATE, North American Technician Excellence, and partner with ENERGY STAR.
- If you’re looking to replace or install a new system, the contractor should base his proposal on their heat-load or cooling-load calculation- never trust a company that gives estimates over the phone without first conducting a survey of the job site.
- Get multiple estimates and request that bids include equipment to be installed or repaired, the labor cost and a timeline of the project. For new systems, contractors should be able to estimate the annual operating costs as well.
- Be wary of extremely low bids because they might not be offering the newest products or include expected warranties. Informed contractors will be up-to-date on the latest advancements and will not steer clients away from high-efficiency models.
