Your Guide to Hiring an HVAC Contractor, Honolulu, Hawaii

Whether you need air conditioning repair or a full HVAC system installation, you need a company you can rely on to do the job right. New homeowners or those who are not happy with their current service may be looking for a company they can trust regularly with their maintenance calls and emergency repairs. So how do you find out if the company you’re considering is a good fit? Here are five factors to consider when choosing a contractor for furnace or air conditioning work.

5 Ways to Find a Reliable HVAC Company

Ask Friends for Recommendations

Usually, the best way to make sure a company provides good service is to ask a friend or family member who has worked with them. If you have acquaintances in the area, ask them who they call for these services.

Read Online Reviews

HVACIf you can’t get a recommendation from someone you know, the next best thing is to read reviews from anyone who has worked with the company. One review may not be reliable, but by reading several and looking for patterns, you can get a pretty good idea of how a company operates.

Ask for Documentation

Once you have a business in mind, get in touch with them to ask about their licenses and insurance. In Hawaii, an HVAC contractor should have an official Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs license to install air conditioning, heating, and ventilation equipment. They should also carry insurance to protect them and you during the work.

Check Their Experience

With relevant experience, your HVAC technician can often solve your problem quickly and completely. Ask your contractor who will be handling your case, how long they’ve been doing HVAC work and whether they have any relevant training or certification.

Request Quotes

Finally, it’s a good idea to get quotes from three or four companies before making a decision. This way, you can spot any particularly low or high offers before you’re locked in with one company.
