In New Jersey, winters can be brutally cold, and summers can be warm, humid, and uncomfortable. You understandably rely on your home’s HVAC system throughout the year. Regular maintenance can help you to avoid a breakdown, promote energy efficiency, and extend your equipment’s life. However, HVAC system repairs are required from time to time. Regardless of the type of heating or cooling service that your home needs, you cannot take chances by hiring the wrong provider. Before confirming service with any company, follow these tips to make a smart hiring decision.
Research the Company’s Experience and Reputation
The HVAC company that you hire should have substantial experience and a proven track record for delivering great results. You can begin researching a provider by reading its online bio. Then, dig further by reading online reviews and asking friends and neighbors about their experiences with the company.
Check the Company’s Credentials
HVAC service providers should be properly licensed and insured. This information is usually printed on the company’s website, but you should go a step further to ensure that the license and insurance policies are still active. The company should provide you with a copy of these documents with their expiration dates upon request.
Request a Written Estimate
Service rates vary considerably, and you do not want to pay more than necessary for quality HVAC services. Trustworthy, legitimate HVAC companies will provide you with a written estimate for the work that needs to be done in your home before getting started. Avoid using companies that refuse to put their estimate in writing.
