What Everybody Ought to Know About Hiring Air Conditioning Contractors

Finding and purchasing the right heating and cooling system is only half of the equation. You also need the right contractor to install it, properly and at the right price.

Are you in the market for a new air conditioning system, but don’t want to get ripped off or taken advantage of? 

Purchasing a new air conditioning system is a process that should not be taken lightly. You may have found a heating and cooling system you would like to know more about or you don’t really know where to begin the process. Home-Tech understands this process all too well, and would like to provide you with some guidance when deciding which air conditioning contractor you will be selecting. We know that a high quality installation is one that takes into account your duct work and home comfort needs. This is critical to the successful performance of any air conditioning system. 

Signs of a Professional Air Conditioning Contractor

  • Asks about your home comfort experience and the things you would like to improve with a new AC system
  • Asks about allergies, dust or other indoor air quality issues and then offers solutions
  • Performs a Manual J load calculation to make sure the new system is properly sized
  • Has a company commitment to ongoing technical training and employs NATE certified technicians
  • Offers financing
  • Offers a maintenance plan or Service Agreement

Red Flags and Warning Signs

  • Quotes a price over the phone or on the back of a business card
