How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At Freed Heating & Air Conditioning, we know choosing a company to provide home comfort system installation and service in Moline is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t have to give up the factors that matter to you. You want excellent service from a dependable company. Before you make a decision, we have suggestions for what to look for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Be sure to gather some information before you start hunting for a company. Take a look at your current system and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also find out the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Moline.

Get personal recommendations. Take some time to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any recommendations. Knowing someone had a helpful experience with a company can be a valuable way to know what to expect.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized proposals in writing so you can compare cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You should see referrals from current customers. A company may give the best prices, but it may not truly be the best value. Consider how these factors will affect your home comfort in the future before you choose.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who offers you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without visiting your home. A good heating and air condition company will complete a thorough examination of your house and your current system to understand your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take special interest in your first meeting with any contractor that comes to your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to involved with this company to maintain your home comfort year-round. If they don’t make a good first impression, you may want to pick a different company.
