There are a few important points to take into consideration when you’re looking at heating contractors. It can be a confusing time, but if you consider the following five tips, you’re sure to find a company that’s both highly qualified and is prepared to go above and beyond to meet your needs:
Five Signs of a Good Heating Contractor
What are their certifications? A company that is invested in its employees is more likely to be invested in you. Look for a company that is NATE-certified. NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence – and this translates into highly trained technicians working in your home and on your heating system.
What products do they offer? Does the company you’re considering offer quality equipment from trusted brands? Are they a factory-authorized dealer? Most companies that are associated with a particular trusted brand are required to maintain high levels of professionalism and employee education – meaning a better product and enhanced service for you.
What are other people saying? Some of the best advertising is word-of-mouth. What are other customers saying about the heating contractor you’re considering? Once you have a name, check with your friends to see if they have experience working with the company. And, check the company’s website for testimonials.
Do they provide a full range of HVAC services? Heating contractors that offer repair services, maintenance contracts and priority service will likely be there to help you should you have any questions, concerns or other home comfort needs.
Do they provide customer education? The best heating contractors are able to provide their customers with honest, straightforward answers to all of their heating questions. Does the contractor you’re considering have a wealth of product and HVAC information at their fingertips, and are you able to easily access it? Do they have a knowledge center on their website that you can easily peruse?
