7 Things to Ask Yourself Before Hiring An HVAC Specialist

And Why You Should Hire Columbia Heating & Cooling Instead

Is this deal too good to be true?
If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Look for honest but reasonable estimates. If you’re unsure as to what is a reasonable cost for a repair, service or new HVAC system, do a little research beforehand or get quotes from multiple businesses. Avoid free service call offers. These likely have hidden charges or fees.

And along the same line: Does this price estimate seem too low?
Lower than average prices can be a strong indicator of cutting corners or using cheap products.

How long has this company been in business?
The unfortunate fact is that many new businesses don’t make it past the first few years due to a variety of circumstances. You won’t want to get involved with a company with inexperienced financial and business management practices.

Can the HVAC technician provide referrals?
Ask your contractor or technician for references or testimonials. They should be able to provide some evidence that they’ve done a great job in the past.

Do they offer energy efficient solutions
Look for HVAC companies that offer energy efficient solutions. Not only are energy efficient HVAC products better for the environment, they can help you save money on utility bills and provide tax breaks.

Does the company have all of the licensing and insurance requirements for your state?
Making sure the person installing your HVAC unit is licensed is critical to ensuring the unit is installed correctly and efficiently.
