Are you worried you will be over-quoted by a HVAC contractor? The technician won’t repair your system correctly? All too often we hear of situations where a home or commercial building owner has been overcharged for HVAC work or “repairs” have been performed by an unqualified technician, causing more costly defects.

Taking the time to go through these 4 steps can save you time, money and the hassle of having no heating or cooling indoors.


Step 1: Research your own HVAC system and get to know your equipment. General knowledge of what you have and how comfortable you are in your home will help guide your HVAC professional towards the services you need.

Step 2: Ask your friends, family and co-workers for contractor referrals or call local trade or HVAC organizations (Air Conditioning Contractors of America, Air Movement and Control Association International, Inc., Consortium for Energy Efficiency) for contact information or resources.

Step 3: Seek out NATE-Certified, insured and bonded technicians. Ask the right questions (now that you have the right information from step 1) to prospective contractors.

Step 4: Compare written estimates with itemized services for bid, including cost, energy efficiency and warranties. A low price may be a red flag their technicians are not certified. Be sure to sign a written proposal with your contractor before the work starts. It will protect you by identifying costs, model numbers, schedule and warranty information.
