How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company Posted April 27, 2017 At Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc., we get that selecting a company to provide heating and air conditioning installation and service in Napoleon is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t have to give up the factors that matter to you. You want excellent service from a reliable company. Before you make a decision, we have suggestions for what to watch for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service. Do some research. Be sure to find some information before you start hunting for a company. Take a look at your current system and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also investigate the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Napoleon. Get personal recommendations. Ask around to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any recommendations. Knowing someone had a helpful interaction with a company can be a useful way to know what to expect. Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized bids in writing so you can study the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. One company may give the lowest prices, but it may not really be the best value. Think about how these factors will influence your home comfort in the future before you choose. Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who offers you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without looking at your home. A good heating and air condition company will do a thorough examination of your house and your current system to understand your needs and the best system to meet them. First impressions matter. You should take note of your first meeting with any contractor that visits your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to work with this company to make your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good overall impression, you may want to pick some other company. Don’t compromise when selecting a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
