How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company Posted April 27, 2017 At Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc., we get that picking a company to provide home comfort system installation and service in South Beloit and Belvidere 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 trustworthy company. Before you make your pick, we have recommendations for what to look for in the company that will be responsible for your heating and cooling service. Do some research. Don’t forget to find some information before you start your search. 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 South Beloit and Belvidere. Get personal recommendations. Ask around to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a good interaction 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 present the best prices, but it may not truly be the best value. Contemplate how these factors will impact 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 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 note of your initial meeting with any contractor that comes to 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 overall impression, you may want to choose a different company. Don’t take anything less than the best when choosing a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
