Are you thinking about upgrading the HVAC system in your home? If your system was installed more than a decade or so ago, that’s a good idea. Modern heating and cooling systems are more energy-efficient than ever before, offering superior performance at lower operating costs.
However, there’s still the matter of finding the right Kingston HVAC contractor to do the installation. There are a lot of contractors out there, and it’s important to hire a qualified team. Here’s what to look for!
What You Want from An HVAC Contractor
Full licensing and insurance
Anyone working on your HVAC system or other major systems in your home must have proper licensing and authorizations to do the work. Make sure you ask about these, so you can verify that they’re legitimate.
Also, ask about their insurance coverage – they must be insured against accident or injury, or else you could be on the hook for their mistakes!
A free (or very low cost) home evaluation
Heating and AC systems are never “one size fits all,” and there are numerous possible solutions depending on the layout of your home, as well as your own needs for the system. Beware any HVAC contractors who try to sell you on a specific solution without first surveying your home. They need that information to provide a workable HVAC system.
Good referrals and reviews
Be sure to take some time and read the online reviews of each potential HVAC contractor you might hire – you’ll undoubtedly learn a lot about how they do business. In addition, they should also have a long list of satisfied past customers and be able to provide you with references and referrals. Be wary if they can’t produce proof that their work is solid.
Quality brands in-stock
It’s also important to check out the reputation of brands carried by your HVAC contractor. We encourage customers to read online reviews of the companies whose HVAC products we recommend. That way, you can have confidence in both the services provided by the contractor, and the products that will serve your home. A good HVAC contractor will carry quality products that perform effectively and fit the particular needs of your space.
