How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At Lanz Furnace and Fireplace, we understand choosing a company to provide heating and air conditioning installation and service in Monroe is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t make sacrifices. You want excellent service from a reliable company. Before you make a decision, we have recommendations for what to look for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Make sure to find 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 investigate the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Monroe.

Get personal recommendations. Ask around to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a great history with a company can be a valuable way to know what to expect.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized bids in writing so you can study the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. A certain company may offer the most reasonable prices, but it may not actually be the best value. Consider how these factors will influence your home comfort in the long run before you make your final decision.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who tells 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 examine your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take inventory of your primary meeting with any contractor that visits your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to rely on this company to maintain your home comfort year-round. If they don’t make a good overall impression, you may want to choose some other company.

Don’t compromise when selecting a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
