Your HVAC system is important for your comfort, but it can also affect your budget and your health. An inefficient system will drain energy causing your bills to increase and taking money out of your pocket. A system that isn’t clean or has an undetected problem could increase the allergens in your home or release deadly carbon dioxide gas and reduce your indoor air quality. In addition to hiring a local HVAC company that has the necessary insurance, licensing, and bonding, you want to make sure that the HVAC company has these four qualities when you have a new system installed.
If you hire a company that only installs in HVAC equipment, what will you do when you need maintenance, repairs or emergency services? While a company that specializes in installs may seem like a good idea at the time, your long-term relationship with the HVAC company is important. Hiring a business that does HVAC installation, maintenance, and repairs, and is available after hours for emergencies, gives you the ability to know who to call when you have an HVAC problem. More importantly, companies that have diversified services are more likely to be around when you need them because they don’t depend on just one activity to create revenue.
NORTH AMERICAN TECHNICIAN EXCELLENCE CERTIFICATION
North American Technician Excellence Certification, also called NATE, is given to individuals who have passed rigorous training and testing. While no one needs this certification to work in the HVAC industry, it does show that the technician is committed to what he or she does and that the person has a certain level of expertise about HVAC services. Remember to check who is coming to service your HVAC system and ask about his or her individual certification.
Your HVAC is going to breakdown when you’re using it. Usually, this means you’re going to need a technician at night or on the weekend. If your regular HVAC service provider doesn’t provide emergency services, you’ll be stuck trying to find another service. That means you’ll either settle for the first available person who may not have the best services or you’ll have to spend time researching while feeling uncomfortable in your home.
A MAINTENANCE CONTRACT
A new HVAC system is a large investment that you want to keep running at peak efficiency. It takes regular maintenance and occasional repairs to keep it running. Hiring a company that offers maintenance contracts makes this easy for you. The contracting company keeps track of when you need regular maintenance calls and schedules them with you. You never have to worry about remembering what your HVAC needs or whom to call. Regular maintenance will reduce the need for repairs and increase the lifespan of the HVAC. These contracts often include discounts for unscheduled calls and repairs and may even include a discount on your next HVAC system. When you hire an HVAC contractor that offers a maintenance contract, you’re getting committed service for your HVAC system.
