How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company Posted April 27, 2017 At Colvin's Heating and Cooling, we get that selecting a company to provide HVAC installation and service in Excelsior Springs is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t have to give up the factors that matter to you. You want excellent service from a dependable company. Before you make a decision, we have some advice for what to search for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service. Do some research. Be sure to collect some information before you start hunting for a company. Take a look at your current system and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also take a look at the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Excelsior Springs. Get personal recommendations. Ask around to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a good experience with a company can be a useful way to know what to expect. Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized bids in writing so you can study the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. A certain company may give the lowest prices, but it may not actually be the best value. Think about how these factors will influence your home comfort in the long run before you decide. Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who offers you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without coming to your home. A good heating and air condition company will do a thorough examination of your house and your current system to understand your needs and the best system to meet them. First impressions matter. You should take special interest in your primary meeting with any contractor that comes to your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to rely on this company to make your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good first impression, you may want to choose a different company. Don’t compromise when selecting a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
