What to Look For in a Reliable HVAC Technician

The heating and cooling system has become such a staple in modern homes that people usually take no notice of it–until it starts developing issues. Then it’s a scramble to find a HVAC technician who can take care of the problem and restore optimal performance. You don’t want to leave such work to a complete amateur, and given how there are numerous heating and cooling service providers out there, looking for someone reliable and experienced can be a bit daunting. Unless. that is, you know which essentials to look for. Your trusted air conditioning and heating installation company, Applied Air Mechanical, shares some of them here.

Necessary Credentials

First things first–where exactly can you find a good HVAC company? The simplest thing to do is check listings online to see if there are some near you. If you want to go about it the traditional way, you can take a look at your local newspaper or yellow pages. Another option that’s proven effective is asking family and friends for referrals. This a bit old fashioned, but getting a recommendation can actually give you a clearer idea on how a given HVAC technician does business.

Once you’ve made a list of names, it’s time to check for essential paperwork, which should include:

Licensing: This should be one of the first things you look for. Depending on the location, an HVAC technician may be required to obtain a license by the state, municipality or county. They should also pass certification exams and technical HVAC training. You can check if your choice of HVAC contractor is licensed by visiting the Contractor’s License Reference Site and National Contractors.

Bonding: This essential serves as a protection against unfair dealings and a kind of financial insurance should anything go wrong with the agreement. In some areas, a bond is a mandatory requirement for getting a license.

Workers’ Compensation and Liability Coverage: These cover you should a worker sustain an injury while working on an HVAC project on your property.
