How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At Winters Heating and Cooling, we get that picking a company to provide HVAC installation and service in Franklin 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 your pick, we have some advice for what to search for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Make sure to collect some information before you start hunting for a company. Take a look at your system as is and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also investigate the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Franklin.

Get personal recommendations. See if your friends, family and co-workers have any recommendations. Knowing someone had a helpful history with a company can be a valuable way to know what their service is like.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized proposals in writing so you can study the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You should see referrals from current customers. A company may present the lowest prices, but it may not actually be the best value. Contemplate how these factors will influence your home comfort in the time to come before you choose.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who tells you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without coming to your home. A good heating and air condition company will go through examination of your house and your current system to figure out your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take inventory of your initial meeting with any contractor that surveys your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to rely on this company to make your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good initial impression, you may want to pick another company.

Don’t compromise when picking a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track. If you’d like to know more about Winters Heating and Cooling and how we can keep your home comfortable, give us a call at 317-406-5783 or schedule an appointment with us online. We’re happy to help!
