Whether you are implementing a new construction project or a retrofit or replacement, choosing a commercial HVAC contractor for HVAC installation is a major decision. There is a lot at stake – the resulting HVAC system can either be a significant source of operational savings for years or a consistent drain on resources. So, choosing the right commercial HVAC contractor is critical. However, it’s not as daunting as it may seem, and there are a few key characteristics of a quality contractor you can search for. Keep reading for some tips on choosing a contractor for commercial HVAC services.
Choose a Licensed & Certified Company
Don’t just hire the first commercial HVAC company you find. Instead, you should look for one that’s industry-certified and licensed. Browse their website for affiliations with local and international groups. A local recognized HVAC Apprenticeship Program produces licensed and certified HVAC Technicians with the proper skill, experience, and training needed for any preventive maintenance, repair, and installation service.
A commercial HVAC provider that is vertically integrated has a wealth of knowledge surrounding the entire HVAC construction process. A vertically integrated HVAC company has specialists in several different areas, meaning you will receive a successful installation and lasting results.
Your HVAC equipment is perhaps the most costly in your commercial building, so you will want only the professionals to handle any issues with your system. Choosing an experienced HVAC contractor ensures quality and reliable results. If you hire a contractor with years of expertise in the industry, you can avoid unnecessary costs for emergency repairs and other services.
Ask for Referrals
It is also a good idea to ask around to find the best HVAC repair company in your area. Asking local businesses which company they use can be an effective way to find the perfect contractor for you. Each company is different, and they have different prices, services, tools, availability, and techniques. Before you interview every commercial HVAC repair company in the area, ask a few friends some questions about the company they work with.
Make Sure They Have Insurance
A dependable HVAC commercial contractor should have insurance. When a contractor is insured, you are not liable in case of an injury or accidental damage. It is also your protection as well. You can ask your contractor for their insurance before signing up for their services. If the unthinkable happens, you want to ensure everyone is protected from harm and there are no surprises.
