How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At Colvin's Heating and Cooling, we get that selecting a company to provide heating and air conditioning 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 your pick, we have some advice for what to look 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 your search. Take a look at your your system now and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also find out 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 recommendations. Knowing someone had a good history with a company can be a valuable way to know what to anticipate.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized estimates in writing so you can compare cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. One company may offer the best prices, but it may not actually be the best value. Think about how these factors will impact your home comfort in the time to come before you choose.

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 inventory of your primary meeting with any contractor that visits your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to rely on this company to keep your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good overall impression, you may want to pick a different company.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best when picking a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
