Choosing the Best HVAC Contractor

When the time comes that you need to purchase a new furnace or air conditioner and have it installed by a certified air conditioning service in Redlands, CA, you’re going to need to call upon Sanborn’s for fast, efficient, accurate and affordable service. It isn’t always easy to decide which company or which contractor to trust with an investment that is as important as the HVAC system of your home. You want to be sure that the company you hire employs only technicians who are qualified to do the job and who understand the complexities of modern air conditioning units and furnaces. This is true even if you have an alternative form of heating and/or cooling such as swamp coolers or radiators. Following are some tips on what to look for in companies and contractors before you hire them:
Try to steer clear of just picking a company out of the phone book (or on the search engine results pages). You may want to start by getting references from individuals you know and asking peers, family, friends and co-workers for some recommendations. If you’ve used a specific HVAC contractor in the past, that’s a good place to get a quote for consideration.
Don’t consider hiring any company that offers to give a quote without seeing your HVAC unit first. How can any company know about your system enough to quote you without inspecting it first? It stands to reason that if they are willing to cut corners in giving you an estimate, they might be prone to cutting corners as they work on your HVAC system, which could cause problems.
You can learn a lot about a company that provides service and its contractors by visiting the company’s website. Look for badges, credentials, license numbers, associations, how long they have been in business, and take a few moments to look at some of the referrals and comments from past customers. You can also check out what people are saying about companies by visiting independent review websites as well.
