When you need to have preventative maintenance completed on your HVAC systems, then you need to expect the best. Whenever you hire a commercial HVAC contractor, it’s understandable that you will demand high-quality services. The most reputable providers can and will exceed your expectations. Why are they so outstanding? Let’s find out.
Overseeing the servicing of commercial HVAC systems can be a complex process. That’s why communication is so important. The best technicians will provide a constant stream of updates and other forms of communication. If the contractor you hired isn’t willing to communicate, then that’s a bad sign. One sign that you have someone you can depend on is when they give you a reminder about upcoming appointments for scheduled service, which is always appreciated. Phone calls, emails, and even text messages can also let you know when the technician you expected is running late due to traffic or some other unforeseen circumstance.
The best contractors also know that building owners and facility managers are busy people. There’s a lot riding on them, after all. What this means is that multiple approaches must be taken all at the same time. For instance, there will be a dedicated account manager assigned to the client. Moreover, status reports will come each quarter, along with timely alerts and reminders.
Paper-based work orders are a relic of the past. While there’s nothing wrong with keeping physical copies of paperwork related to each transaction, you wouldn’t want your contractor to rely solely on these methods. Instead, you would expect them to use modern technology. It’s also important for each business to get with the times as well. Each technician should be equipped with mobile devices that help them get their jobs done more efficiently. This way, completed work orders can be emailed back to the home office, with no muss and no fuss.
Proof of Service
Finally, you should always expect proof of service. This isn’t simply a luxury, but a necessity. Video technology is one way to provide evidence, especially when the technicians are given wearable cameras to take with them on each job.
