No one enjoys a broken HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system, especially while at work or home. Nothing is worse than trying to focus your tasks and chores while freezing cold or dripping in seat.
Unfortunately, breakdowns happen, and you’ll likely need to hire an HVAC company to take care of the repairs. An honest, capable local HVAC repair company can make the process easier.
Here’s our advice on how to go about finding one:
Take Advantage of Social Media
Social media is a valuable tool when doing research for potential HVAC companies. Clients post both positive and negative reviews on sites like Facebook and Twitter, and they can help you decide which company to hire. Once you’ve hired someone, you’ll have the opportunity to leave your own feedback.
Check Industry Organizations
Trustworthy HVAC companies are likely members of an industry organization that offers membership based on the company’s good reputation and qualifications. Some organizations you can check out for HVAC include:
- The Better Business Bureau
- The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers
- The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute
Compile a List and Call
Using the tools above, take note of the best HVAC companies in your area and make a list of what you find. Call each and ask questions concerning your needed services, price estimates and warranties, and an estimate for how long the project will take. Record and compare their answers for a well-rounded look at the industry in your area.
