4 Tips for Selecting an HVAC Contractor

When installing or replacing an HVAC system at your building, who you hire is crucial. Installations can be complex jobs, and should be completed by experienced professionals. Using the wrong contractor can result in loss of time and money, and can be an inconvenience to your business.

Choosing the right contractor to complete your project is important.

Here are 4 tips for selecting an HVAC contractor:


Take the time to look up the company you are interested in hiring to avoid scams and inexperienced staff. Find out how long the company has been in business. You want to choose a vendor that is established. Make sure to look at the company’s website and customer reviews.

Licensed and Insured

Making sure a contractor is licensed and insured is extremely important. Often, unlicensed contractors do not have the skills and qualifications to become licensed. If you choose the wrong contractor, you can be held financially liable if there is any damage or injury.

Ask About Their Technicians

Ask the company how many years of experience their technicians have. You’ll want to make sure the person/people completing your project has/have at least two years of experience in the field, and the company participates in ongoing training. The heating and cooling industry is constantly changing and it’s important for technicians are up-to-date on their skills.

Be Careful with the Lowest Bidder

We’ve all heard the saying, “you get what you pay for”, and this phrase is especially true in the contracting business. Paying a little bit more will often result in quality service, updated equipment and, possibly, above average maintenance agreements. Always ask for a detailed estimate and feel free to ask why a vendor’s prices are set a certain way.
