Hiring a local HVAC contractor around Prescott and Prescott Valley is easy to do. However, with all the heating and cooling contractors out there, how do you decide?
I thought I’d write some of what customers have told me and what I experience. There is more to the process of setting an appointment and hoping the right contractor shows up. I would advise a few things to look at before you allow someone to work on your home or building.
Licensed. When an HVAC contractor is licensed by the state of Arizona, there is proof of insurance and a bond. Even in the event of a licensed contractor doing shoddy work, there is a recovery fund. This allows the homeowner to potentially collect on damages. When a contractor has a license, they passed the contractor’s test, put up money for the bond, and proved the necessary experience. You can see our license here and to check a license, see this link.
References. Can the contractor provide references? I believe an upstanding contractor can quickly provide information on a few Recent Customers. I have found that when I provide references, many potential customers won’t call! The fact that I was willing to prove what my company has been doing-builds trust.
Reputation. With all the Social Media today, it’s hard to hide! Why not check if the company you’re considering hiring has a few good reviews. Not everyone is perfect, but one of the most important things a company should have is honesty, integrity and to show respect to everyone.
Choices. Many things can go wrong because your home is not being heated and cooled properly. Did the contractor provide a cost analysis? If your HVAC is 10-15 years old, does it really have to be replaced? Right now? Many times, this is not the case.
