How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At B & G HVAC, we know picking a company to provide home comfort system installation and service in Marshalltown 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 reliable company. Before you make a decision, we have suggestions for what to search for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Don’t forget to gather some information before you start looking. Take a look at your your system now and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also investigate the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Marshalltown.

Get personal recommendations. Take some time to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a helpful interaction with a company can be a good way to know what to expect.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized proposals in writing so you can compare cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. A certain company may give the best prices, but it may not actually be the best value. Contemplate how these factors will affect your home comfort in the future before you decide.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who gives you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without visiting your home. A good heating and air condition company will do a thorough examination of your house and your current system to examine your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take inventory of your first 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 make your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good first impression, you may want to choose some other company.

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