When something happens with your HVAC system in your home or business, it can be easy to get stressed out and overwhelmed trying to find a solution. And it is not always as easy as just dialing the phone number and it is a problem solved. It can be difficult to know who exactly you can trust to invite into your home or business to work on your very expensive HVAC system and be sure they can fix the problem, if you are okay if something goes wrong, and will they cost you a fortune compared to someone else. You don’t have to be paralyzed by analyzing all these different factors. Our Innovative Air Conditioning and Heating team wanted to help you with some helpful tools and tricks to help you find the right service company when it comes to your HVAC system.
One of the first things we would recommend to anyone finding a vendor or service for something is to trust their personal referrals. More than anonymous reviews and references from the internet, getting an endorsement from the people you trust who can be transparent with you the most should give you a good perspective about how reliable someone's service will be. Whether it is a neighbor who recently had a project done, some coworkers, or family and friends could all give you a very trustworthy referral about how satisfied they were with their experience. You may also contact your Homeowner’s Association (HOA) if you have one to see if they have a preferred service that may even come with a discount. Even if one of your personal referrals has had a negative experience, that at least eliminates one contender from the long list of companies you may consider hiring for your problem.
If a personal referral does not help point you in the direction of a qualified and reliable HVAC service company, getting in contact with one of their team and asking questions is a great way to gauge if they are right for you. Over a phone call or through email correspondence can be a tricky way to evaluate whether or not a technician is skilled enough for the job you have for them, but there are some other important questions you can ask. One of the most telling signs is how they treat your questions and whether or not they respond kindly or if they are dismissive and condescending when you describe your issue. In addition, it can be great reassurance to hear about their bonds, licenses, and insurance in case something goes wrong which can happen to even the very best HVAC technicians. Finally, ask them for any kind of estimate. And while the estimate is not the final cost, it is still one of the best ways to shop away and the better you can describe your problem the more accurate the estimate can be. Be sure to also ask about time frames between when they think they can begin and finish the task.
In your search for great HVAC help, google and other online reviews are a great resource. Although it may not be quite as valuable as a personal recommendation, google reviews are extremely reliable and trustworthy. From the business point of view, getting google to change negative reviews is next to impossible, so if they offer poor service people will be quick to report it. In general, people are most likely to report really great or really poor experiences. Looking at google reviews gives you an unfiltered look at people’s experience with a business.
