Whether you’re in need of HVAC maintenance or a new unit install, you’ll want to work with an experienced contractor so that you start and finish your project successfully. Proper maintenance and installation, after all, can positively affect the long-term serviceability of your HVAC equipment.
Our HVAC experts at R. A. Biel Plumbing and Heating, Inc. list four important questions you should ask your prospective contractor before you hire them.
1. Are You NATE Certified?
The contractors you should work with should have technicians certified by the North American Technician Excellence program. The certification itself is proof that the contractor’s team of technicians have passed a hands-on examination that verifies their training and expertise and will always provide you with top-quality workmanship.
We’re proud to say that our technicians have passed all the rigorous testing necessary to qualify as NATE Certified Technicians, and all of us come with years of experience providing HVAC repair, maintenance, and installation services.
2. Are You Licensed and Insured?
The company you’re working with must also have an updated license and necessary insurance. The license ensures that the work they do is done legally and professionally, while insurance protects you from being liable for damages. Insurance also adds credibility to the contractor. You can look at it as an additional assurance and peace of mind knowing your new unit and property are protected during the project.
3. Do You Offer Maintenance Services?
Most HVAC companies only offer installation and replacement services; few actually offer long-term maintenance services. You’ll want to work with a contractor that offers this as preventive maintenance allows you to head off problems and even extend the lifespan of your heating or cooling system. Our company offers preventive maintenance as part of our complete services, and we’ll make sure your unit stays in good condition throughout the year.
