How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company

April 27, 2017

At KDM Service Corporation, we know choosing a company to provide heating and air conditioning installation and service in Tuscaloosa 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 reliable company. Before you make a decision, we have recommendations for what to watch for in the company that will be working on 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 Tuscaloosa.

Get personal recommendations. Take some time to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a great experience with a company can be a valuable way to know what to anticipate.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized bids in writing so you can compare cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You should see referrals from current customers. A company may offer the lowest prices, but it may not really be the best value. Think about how these factors will impact your home comfort in the long run before you choose.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Never give your business to a who tells you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without coming to your home. A good heating and air condition company will complete a thorough 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 special interest in your initial meeting with any contractor that surveys 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 first impression, you may want to select another company.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best when picking a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track.
