Ever had a problem with the equipment in your home and wondered what contractor you could rely on for good service?
We all have.
It’s easy to get pulled in by the flyers you find attached to your front door, or a coupon you receive in the mail. After all, they seem like a great deal. And if they have money to advertise, they must have a fairly strong business, right?
If it seems like the deal is too good to be true, chances are it is. Your HVAC equipment is one of the most important systems in your home. To keep it operating smoothly and efficiently all year through, quality is key. And sometimes that means overlooking price and focusing in on the quality of the workmanship instead.
That’s not saying you can’t find a good deal. Just be smart about who you trust to keep your HVAC equipment in top shape throughout the year. With a little forethought, you can ensure the HVAC contractor you choose will give you as good of a deal as it seems.
Research the contractor before you make your decision. Thanks to the Internet, it doesn’t take long to do a little research. Ensure they aren’t a fly-by-night company that’s in it for a quick buck. Look for longevity, a focus on the community, and a contractor that cares about the service it provides. Positive experiences from past clients will lead the way.
NEVER jump into a deal without a little research. High pressure usually fails. If someone approaches you and says you have to make a quick decision about a “good deal,” chances are it's better to let it go. Make sure you get equipment from a licensed professional who stands behind the work he performs. This way you know you’re covered in the event something happens to the equipment after it’s installed.
Ask about rebates. A reputable HVAC company knows you want to save money in every way possible. Occasionally local, state, or national rebates might help make your equipment even more affordable. A reputable HVAC company will share these rebates with you to ensure you get the best equipment at the lowest price.
Look beyond the lowest price. It’s human nature to want to select the lowest price possible. But sometimes a little more money can get you an even better deal. What if the equipment will last years longer? What if the equipment will save you 10, 20 percent or more on every utility bill? Listen to what the HVAC contractor has to say and ask questions to be sure your final selection is the right one for you.
Your heating and cooling equipment is an investment in your home comfort. It’s something that impacts your utility bills every month. To ensure you get the best equipment for your lifestyle, ask questions. We welcome them.
