Selecting a company for HVAC system installation can be difficult. Here are some suggestions to help you navigate the process.
Not all cooling and heating systems are the same. What are you being offered? Most of the quotes you will hear likely will be in the same ballpark. If one is much lower or higher than the others, there’s probably a good reason for it.
- Find out how the contractor chooses the cooling or heating system for your home. A unit that’s too large will cost more to run and create problems related to excessive short cycling. A system that’s too small may be less expensive upfront, but will underperform during extreme weather conditions.
- Make sure to get an itemized list of all of the included goods and services. The bill may be lower upfront, but ask if there will be any costs added later on.
- Programmable thermostats, high-efficiency filters and extended warranties will cost more, but will pay for themselves with lower energy bills and other benefits.
The best unit is worthless without experienced contractors for your HVAC system installation.
- Do they do routine maintenance work and emergency repairs in the middle of the night, the weekend or holidays?
- Requirements for HVAC contracting companies are determined like local laws. Make calls to confirm that their insurance, licenses and certifications are all current.
- Call the Better Business Bureau to make sure that they have a clean record.
- Call references and ask for detailed answers to your questions. Would they do business with them again? Was the work finished on time?
- Are your calls answered in a timely manner? Do the contractors answer your questions respectfully and in sufficient detail for you to understand what they are offering to do for you?
If you need to make a decision between multiple quotes for home HVAC system installation, it’s always wise to speak to multiple contracting companies and take your time in choosing.
