How To Make Sure You're Hiring The Right HVAC Contractor


Indianapolis HVACNo matter how good your HVAAC system is, there will come a time when it needs to be replaced. When hiring a HVAC contractor, you want a company that will get the job done quickly and correctly at a reasonable price.

Ask Around: Select a local contractor that has a good reputation within the community. Ask family and friends for recommendations. When making inquiries, ask why the person found it necessary to engage a contractor.

Seek Reviews: Browse online reviews and testimonials. Visit the BBB (Better Business Bureau) website. Verify that the company has a good rating and few complaints from customers.

Do Research: Request references from satisfied clients. Find out if the contractor charges their customers other fees besides the price that is advertised. Validate the contractor’s credentials. Visit the company’s website to verify that the contractor is licensed, and certified, and insured.

Ask Questions: Find out if the company provides a formal contract that outlines all equipment, repairs, and fees, and a guarantee of a time framework in which the work will be completed. Ask if you will be notified of changes on costs, timeline, or unexpected repairs that are made to the contract. Ask if the contractor requires money upfront for large jobs. Find out if the company performs maintenance on a regular schedule-is this part of the fee, or is it extra?

Be Cautious: A reputable HVAC contractor will give a written estimate, draw up a formal contract, and let you know if changes need to be made to the contract.

Remember, a reputable contractor is licensed, certified, and insured. It is critical to keep your system in good working order, so you will be comfortable in both in all types of weather. It’s also very important to hire a reputable HVAC contractor.
