Choosing a new HVAC company to provide you with service or help you with a new installation in your Gainesville, Georgia, home is a process that you shouldn’t rush into. You will want to make sure that you choose a company that is reliable, knowledgeable, and there for you when you need them most. To help you simplify the task of choosing the right HVAC company, here are the following questions you should ask candidates.
Are Your Technicians Certified?
Many people will wrongly assume that all HVAC technicians are certified to work with specific equipment. This is not always the case. You will want to ask your HVAC company if their technicians are NATE-certified. This means that they will have regular training, which can help them not only understand how to service older equipment but also how to work on the newest types of HVAC technology.
HVAC systems are complex and can sometimes be dangerous to repair, which makes having a technician with the know-how vital.
Do You Offer Emergency Services?
Unfortunately, HVAC systems can break down at times when it’s inconvenient. This means you may need to have a technician come out to your home for emergency repair, either after hours, on weekends, or during the holidays.
When talking with potential HVAC companies, ask if they provide these services, if there are restrictions on certain days, and if they charge fees. You may want to ask if they provide discounted rates for those who are part of regular maintenance programs.
Do You Offer Maintenance Agreements?
One of the best defenses against any HVAC system breakdown is making sure that it’s regularly maintained. Check with the HVAC company to see if they offer maintenance programs. If they do, you can often enjoy benefits such as automatic maintenance scheduling, repair priority, and sometimes even discounts on the price of repairs.
