Questions to Ask an HVAC Company Before Hiring Them

When it comes time to replace your HVAC system, choosing the right HVAC company is just as important as choosing the right system. That’s why we’re here to help you out. Take a look at these important questions you should be asking HVAC companies before you decide to hire them. 


What Do You Think Is Wrong With My Current System?

Asking this question will help you understand what kind of service you can get from the contractor. It will also help determine how credible and trustworthy the contractor is. 


For example, a reliable and good contractor will first ask you for details about your HVAC issues. They will also ask you for information about your system like how old it is, etc. It’s only after they ask these questions that they will be able to provide you some insight into what’s wrong with your system. 


When you ask these questions, you should also pay attention to the voice of the contractor. A good contractor will answer every question you have while using terms that make sense to you. They will also take the time to teach you troubleshooting techniques that you will be able to perform on your own. 


What HVAC Brands Do You Carry or Recommend?

Once you know what brands the HVAC company carries and recommends, look at the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. The higher the rating, the more efficient the unit is. 


Can I See A Copy Of Your HVAC License?

Anyone who is working as an HVAC contractor in the state of Florida must be licensed through the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. 


Can You Provide Me Details of Your Liability Insurance?

At the minimum HVAC companies should be protected with general liability insurance. This type of insurance could help pay for injuries sustained at the job, property damage, HVAC installation problems, and moisture damage. What’s important is that you ask to see the details of their policy. Once they provide you with a copy of their insurance, contact the insurance company to make sure that it is legit. 


What’s All Included & Not Included In The Project Quote?

A reliable HVAC contractor will be straightforward with you when they explain what’s all included and not included in the project quote. They should tell you right away if they will be replacing any parts as well as any warranty or guarantee exclusions. The most important part is that you ask for all of this in writing. This will help you understand where your money is going and what your contractor is using it for. 


How Soon Can You Start?

The last thing that you’ll want to happen is you hire a contractor to fix or repair your HVAC system, but they can’t get to it for a couple of weeks. It’s important that you find a company that will fit your needs. If you need to have your system repaired immediately, you need a contractor that will do it immediately.
