3 Tips to Find a Residential or Commercial HVAC Contractor, Woodland Park, New Jersey

Whether you need to install an AC unit in your home or repair the heating system in your business, all work should be left to a trained HVAC contractor. By taking the DIY approach to these tasks, you could get injured, damage equipment, or void warranty agreements. To find a qualified technician to tend to your heating and cooling needs, below are a few points to go over during the initial consultations. 

How to Find the Right HVAC Contractor

1. Verify Credentials 

A reputable HVAC contractor strives to provide clients with the best service. To this end, they should carry a valid license. This ensures they abide by industry regulations in the state(s) they service.

Ask for the license number so you can confirm the information with the licensing agency in your area. They should also provide the policy information for their general liability and workers’ compensation coverage. If needed, the insurance will pay for any property damage and medical bills of injured workers. 

2. Call Referrals

The contacts will let you know whether the contractor stuck to the written estimate, asked for payment in installments or a lump sum, completed work to customer satisfaction, and was available for follow-up services if needed. In addition to the referral list, look to see what others are saying about the company online. 

3. Ask for a Home Evaluation

As part of the preparation work, all reputable HVAC contractors should schedule home evaluations before installing central heating and air systems. With a thorough walk-through, they’ll know what equipment is best depending on the square footage of your space, the existing insulation, presence of windows, and condition of the current duct system.
