The weather is cold, and your HVAC system isn’t working. No homeowner wants to deal with disaster situations like this. Routine service cuts down on such woes. If something unexpected does happen, hiring the right contractor to perform repairs gets the system back on track. Do you know who to look for when hiring an HVAC contractor? Here are three tips on hiring a legitimate, skilled one.

1. The Contractor Knows Your Specific HVAC System

Not all HVAC systems are precisely the same. Different manufacturers produce different models with their unique designs. Of course, there are common traits among all systems. A skilled HVAC contractor should know how to clean or repair the average system. Do you want to take a chance, though? Look for a contractor who knows the “ins and outs” of your specific model. Ask if the contractor previously serviced similar models before. Is the contractor someone listed as a reputable provider who is capable of handling service for HVAC systems under official warranty? Think about these things when planning on calling a contractor.

2. The Contractor Offers Detailed Estimates

An estimate shouldn’t be overly general, and it shouldn’t miss essential items. Top contractors deliver an unambiguous estimate that tells you everything you need to know about the service involved. The contractor should discuss any third parties — such as electricians — required for the job. Basically, the right contractor fills in all the blanks about cost and service before starting any work.

3. The Contractor Backs Up His/Her Professionalism

A legitimate contractor boldly reveals all licenses, training certifications, insurance coverage, affiliations and years of experience. A true professional possesses the requirements to operate a real business. You don’t want a fly-by-night contractor handling this type of sensitive work.
