Reputable HVAC Contractors and What to Look For

Reputable HVAC Contractors and What to Look ForSo… you’re in search of a reputable HVAC contractor, and it’s a little frustrating? We feel your pain, which is why we’ve compiled a quick list of what to look for. Follow these tips and you’ll instantly be ahead of the game.


Great Reputation

This one should go without saying, but it’s important to start with anyway. If possible, contact your family, friends, and co-workers to see if they have any suggestions on a good company to use.

ACCA Inclusion

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America keeps a list of HVAC companies that are considered to be reputable. This is another fantastic place to begin your search for a contractor.

Positive BBB Listing

Check with the Better Business Bureau to see how any potential companies are rated. You can also take a look at how complaints were handled to get a more well-rounded view of the company.

Solid Referrals

If an HVAC contractor you’re looking at is worth their weight in air filters, then they won’t have any problem providing you with a list of customers who have utilized them in the past.

Industry Knowledge

Since they’re part of the HVAC industry, knowledge of that industry should be a given. What we’re referring to, though, is how well a company’s technicians keep up on evolving technology and trends.

NATE Certification

As a homeowner who cares about home comfort, you should always strive to hire the best. A great way to weed out the less than desirable HVAC companies is to ensure NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certification, which ensures proper knowledge and testing of technicians.

Extensive Contracts

When it comes to writing up a contract for any given HVAC project, you want it to include every detail possibly. This includes the expected timeframe of completion, all costs involved, the equipment to be installed (if any), and how changes will be handled.
