How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At GV Heating & Air, we know picking a company to provide heating and air conditioning installation and service in Crystal and Twin Cities is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t have to give anything up. You want excellent service from a dependable company. Before you make your pick, we have suggestions for what to search for in the company that will be working on your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Don’t forget to gather some information before you start your search. Take a look at your system as is and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also investigate the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Crystal and Twin Cities.

Get personal recommendations. See if your friends, family and co-workers have any recommendations. Knowing someone had a helpful experience with a company can be a valuable way to know what their service is like.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized proposals in writing so you can analyze the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You should see referrals from current customers. One company may give the lowest prices, but it may not truly be the best value. Think about how these factors will influence your home comfort in the time to come before you choose.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Never give your business to a who offers you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without visiting your home. A good heating and air condition company will complete a thorough examination of your house and your current system to understand your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take note of your primary meeting with any contractor that surveys your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to work with this company to maintain your home comfort year-round. If they don’t make a good overall impression, you may want to select some other company.

Don’t take anything less than the best when picking a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
