With temperatures ranging from 72 to 93 all week and stifling humidity, no one wants their Houston HVAC to die on them. When it does, you probably feel like you’d hire just about anyone standing on your doorstep promising to have the right tools to fix your AC. While time is of the essence, you shouldn’t have to settle for sub-standard work. Taking time to ask a few important questions will ensure that your Houston HVAC contractor is the right person for the job.
- Are you licensed and insured? In the good state of Texas, HVAC contractors must be licensed and insured. These factors all let you know that the contractor you hire has met minimum education and on-the-job training requirements. Liability insurance protects you, the homeowner, in case there is an accidental injury on your property.
- Do you have references I may call? For a good HVAC company in Houston, referrals are our bread-and-butter. We can provide you with a recent list of customers you may ask about our services.
- What brands do you work with and install? You want to make sure your contractor is experienced and familiar with your brand of HVAC before tinkering around. The energy efficiency designs of today are very different from the steam-driven radiator systems of the past. What works repairing one machine may not work on another. Also, should you ever need a new system, you want to know that the company can provide your brand of choice.
- Will my project qualify for a tax credit or rebate? A good Houston AC contractor will be able to let you know about any incentives that are available to you. You won’t need to ask this question if you are just calling for a repair, but he should also be familiar with providing proper documentation so all installations or upgrades are covered.
- What is the payment schedule? A good HVAC contractor will give you flexible payment terms you can meet. Often, you can get a helpful line of credit to pay for unanticipated expenses and have your AC fixed sooner — rather than later.
