What to Look for When Hiring an HVAC Company

Figuring out which Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning contractor in Georgia can be very stressful and overwhelming to make sure you get the right one for you. If you follow these steps, finding the perfect contractor for you will be a little easier.


Before you call an HVAC contractor, find out the model of your current system and its maintenance history. Find out about license and insurance requirements for contractors in your state. Also make note of any uncomfortable rooms. This will help you explain what you need.


As around to your neighbors, friends and family. Facebook has neighborhood sites now and that is a great place to ask for a good referral.


When you get down to the final two or three contractors that you are looking at, ask them for references. Call the references and ask questions about the process so you will know what to expect.


Go online and see what people are saying about your potential HVAC contractors. If there is a high amount of unsatisfied people writing negative reviews, you might want to skip that company.

Home Inspection / Evaluation

Before you get an estimate, expect a home evaluation. The HVAC contractor should spend significant time inspecting your current system to assess your needs.

Get it in Writing

Make sure you get written itemized estimates. When comparing contractors’ proposals (bids), be sure to compare cost, energy efficiency and warranties.

Once you select a company, make sure you sign a written proposal with a contractor before the work gets started. It’ll protect you by specifying project costs, model numbers, job schedule and warranty information in the long run.


Look at review websites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB). HomeAdvisor has a service where you can find a reputable contractor in your area. They have a comprehensive screening process and over two million verified pro reviews. Angie’s List is another service that screens and has reviews for contractors.


Ask questions. Talk with the owner or management. See if the technician that is going to be working on your system is certified to work on HVAC systems.

Least Expensive is Not Always the Best Choice

A lowest price may not be the best deal if it’s not the most efficient because your energy costs will be higher. The reason a contractor can provide substantially cheap service is because it is hiring inexperienced and unskilled technicians. In many cases you might need to hire someone else to repair the damages the first company has done.
