Signs of a Trustworthy HVAC Company
Not all HVAC companies are created equal. There are a lot of companies to choose from, but few live up to the hype they market. When choosing a reputable company you can trust, here are 4 things to look for.
A good practice while searching for an HVAC company is to collect a few estimates. Beware anyone that gives you an estimate over the phone without investing the time to see the job for themselves. A professional technician knows they can't give you a precise estimate without knowing all aspects of the job - which can only be seen on site. The sign of a trustworthy company is one who will come and see you in person to talk about the scope of work and what you can expect. Make sure you are provided a detailed, written estimate that might include hidden fees or cost increase possibilities.
While selecting an experienced company is important, you also want to choose one who is up to date with current technology and practices. Experience is important, but it is no everything! Look for an HVAC company with a long history of skills - one that can show a consistent record of providing quality work over a long period of time. Just because the company is 75 years old, does not mean it has all of those years were quality years.
Looking for an HVAC company with extra accountability credentials is a smart thing to do. In Manitoba, reputable companies usually belong to groups like the HRAI, BBB and guarantee the quality of products and services. Ask if they are licensed, bonded and insured and that their technicians carry the appropriate certifications.
As tempting as it may be, try not to let price alone be your deciding factor. There are many companies that find ways to cut cost while estimating by using cheap parts, rushed service, poor quality products, little to no warranty or surprise hidden fees that appear half way through the job. Quite often, the cheapest quote turns into the most costly at the end of the job.
