How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At Scott Temperature, we understand selecting a company to provide home comfort system installation and service in Lawrence is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t make sacrifices. You want excellent service from a reliable company. Before you make your pick, we have recommendations for what to search for in the company that will be working on your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Don’t forget to collect 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 Lawrence.

Get personal recommendations. See if your friends, family and co-workers have any suggestions. Knowing someone had a helpful experience with a company can be a useful way to know what to expect.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized estimates in writing so you can analyze the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. A company may give the best prices, but it may not really be the best value. Consider how these factors will impact your home comfort in the future before you decide.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Never give your business to a who gives 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 figure out your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take note of your first meeting with any contractor that comes to your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to rely on this company to maintain your home comfort year-round. If they don’t make a good overall impression, you may want to pick some other company.

Don’t take anything less than the best when choosing a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
