While we may be partial to thinking that we are the best in Pensacola and Mobile, we are here to give some advice on choosing your HVAC contractor along with some helpful questions to ask.
It's a fact, if you have an HVAC system, it will need maintenance at some point in time. When you need help in a hurry, it's helpful to have an HVAC contractor that you can trust to do the job right and treat you and your pocketbook fairly. Here are some questions that are important to ask before hiring your air conditioning contractor:
1. Are you licensed?
This is a big one! This is absolutely a minimum requirement when looking for an HVAC contractor. Licensed contractors are expected to uphold a certain standard in our industry.
2. Do you guarantee your work?
This is another big question to ask. Does your HVAC contractor have a warranty or guarantee their work? Mistakes to happen, and it's good to know that your contractor will take care of you if their is some issue that arises.
3. Can you provide references?
Any quality contractor should be able to provide multiple references for the type of work that they are doing in your home. If not, stay away!
4. Will you be pulling all the proper permits for the work being performed?
When your contractor pulls the necessary permits, they are insuring that the job will be up to current building codes. To pass the inspection, a code enforcement employee will need to verify that the work was done up to code.
5. What is your trip charge or service call fee?
This is an important question to ask before having an HVAC contractor come out. Does the service call fee only cover a certain amount of time? Is it a flat rate? Asking these questions will help avoid any surprises when the invoice arrives.
