Use these tips to help you choose the best commercial heating and air conditioning installation contractor.

Read reviews. It always pays to do your research before hiring anyone to work on your property. Read reviews on HVAC companies in your area. You can get them from Google, Angie’s List, Yelp and the Better Business Bureau website. It would also help to ask for recommendations from your colleagues, family and friends. 

Ask for a portfolio. A reputable contractor will have no issues showing you the results of their past projects and explaining the details of your heating and air conditioning repair or installation project. Request samples of projects they’ve worked on before that are similar to yours. Don’t forget to ask how long they’ve been in business, as well. 

Obtain quotes from different contractors. Get at least three quotes from different contractors before hiring one. Make sure that the estimate includes materials, equipment and labor. Some companies only provide general quotes and add on items as the project progresses. 

Request proof of licensing & insurance. Only work with a contractor that has a license and insurance. These will protect you and your property in case something happens during your project. A technician that’s licensed was at one point required to take exams that tested their education and skills.
