What to Consider When Hiring an HVAC Professional

Start your search for an HVAC professional with recommendations from friends and family. Do an online search for local companies, as well. Reviews and ratings can help narrow your list. Make your final decision with the following considerations in mind.

The Better Business Bureau gives companies ratings based on many important factors. These include:

  • Type of business
  • Number of years doing business
  • Business practices
  • Number of complaints
  • Complaint resolution

Look for an A rating. That means the company has earned at least 90 out of 100 possible points. It’s a good sign that they’re doing business right.


Positive reviews and testimonials mean customers are happy with their services. They do good work. It also signifies an HVAC professional who goes the extra mile. Most customers don’t take that additional step lightly. Think about what motivates you to post a good review.

Service Offerings

When you hire an HVAC repair contractor, choose a full-service operation. They’re more likely to use current industry techniques. Plus, you won’t need to look for a new company when you need different HVAC services.

Transparent Pricing

Reputable HVAC professionals won’t give you a bid for repairs and installation on the phone. There are too many variables that can affect the amount of work you’ll need. But they should be upfront about pricing after an inspection. Be wary of hidden costs and expensive upgrades. Discuss the service call fee with the technician prior to setting an appointment. Note that these fees are standard in the industry. But some HVAC pros offer coupons and discounts to help offset the cost. Go with a pro who gives you the bottom line.

EPA Certification

Technicians who work with some refrigeration systems need EPA certification. Ask your HVAC service provider about Section 608 Certification under the Clean Air Act. That way you’ll know they’re following federal guidelines.

Service Guarantee

Hire an HVAC company that stands behind their work. A 100% satisfaction guarantee says they’re confident about their service quality. It also demonstrates a commitment to customer satisfaction.
