License and Insurance
It’s important to ensure that the installation company has a license, liability insurance, and workers compensation. If a company doesn’t have insurance or a license, it’s a red flag. No insurance could be problematic if a worker ends up being injured while on your property.
Research the Company
When choosing an air conditioning installation company, take some time to research the company. Find out how long the company has been in business under the current name. Make sure that the company has a physical address, as well as a phone number. You’ll also want to ensure that the company has a good reputation in the community.
Ask for References
Before you decide to use a company, ask for references for customers the company has worked with in the past. Make sure that you get names and phone numbers so you have the chance to contact references before hiring the company. Even if you check the company’s references, you may want to look online for reviews of the company. You can look at the Better Business Bureau to find out if the company is rated with the BBB and if there have been any complaints or reports filed.
Ensure Technicians are Experienced
You’ll also want to verify that the technicians that work for the company have plenty of experience dealing with air conditioning installation. You may want to ask if technicians have certification from the North American Technician Excellence or the Air conditioning Contractors of America. Since you are allowing these technicians inside your home, you may also want to ensure that technicians are prescreened with background checks and drug testing.
While it’s essential to choose the right heating and cooling equipment for your home, you also need to ensure that you have your equipment professionally installed. Use these helpful tips to ensure that you have an experienced company dealing with the installation of your equipment, ensuring that you get the best performance from your new system.
