Whether you need to schedule summer maintenance, emergency repairs or new equipment installation for your home in Culpeper, VA, you understandably need to find a trustworthy HVAC company to get the job done. By focusing on a few important factors like licensing, insurance and certifications, you can feel confident about selecting a reputable HVAC team.
A Licensed and Insured Company
All legitimate and reputable HVAC service providers have an active license and are properly insured. You can request a copy of the company’s license and insurance certificate, and you can go a step further to ensure that the company is still in good standing with the licensing department and the insurance provider.
The North American Technician Excellence certification is obtained after a technician shows solid mastery in essential HVAC equipment services. Before booking an appointment for HVAC service in your home, inquire about the certifications that the company requires its technicians to hold.
Whether you need to schedule new AC installation or repair service, you should inquire about the brand or dealer certifications that the company has. These certifications may indicate that the company’s team has been properly trained in the specific servicing requirements for those brands’ systems.
A Solid BBB Rating
The Better Business Bureau keeps records of all consumer complaints filed against a company. By contacting the BBB, you can determine how many complaints have been filed against a specific HVAC company and what the outcome was for each of the complaints.
Excellent Consumer Reviews
Use an independent consumer review website to learn more about the experiences that real customers have had with the HVAC company that you are thinking about using. Pay attention to consumers’ comments related to pricing and estimates, the quality of work completed, promptness, efficiency and other factors that may be relevant to your specific needs.
