A few years ago before home air conditioning, most people referred to the job simply as furnace repair, and even ductwork was an afterthought since heat rose naturally and air flow was only slightly understood. Today, ventilation has become a technology of its own. An HVAC contractor plays a crucial role in your home’s safety, air quality and comfort and we at Airinmotion do just that. You will need the services of our professional HVAC contractors to keep the temperatures in your home comfortable regardless of whether it is the cold or hot season. The following are some of the steps you should consider before hiring an HVAC contractor.
Licensing and insurance
All the provinces of Canada dictate that HVAC contractors meet minimum education requirements. They must also pass written tests in order to attain the licensing to work in the HVAC industry. On the other hand, HVAC companies need to hold a minimum level of bonding and insurance in order to qualify for and continue to hold that license. We carry liability insurance to protect our clients in case of any injuries or damages.
Due to the high costs of installing, replacing or repairing new HVAC equipment, it is important to get at least three written estimates from three different HVAC companies. This is because the project cost is probably your most important consideration and costs may vary significantly from one company to the next. At Airinmotion, we will give you an estimate of what we will charge you for the services you want. We will document your project’s overall scope, details and completion dates so that everything is clear and you do not have to worry about hidden charges or delays in completion of your project.
At Airinmotion, we have a list of our customers who you can contact just to confirm that we performed our obligations to the clients in a timely manner and to their satisfaction. As a new client, or someone who is looking to get exceptional HVAC services, it is imperative to actually call any references available so as to get relevant details about how their projects progressed.
Experience with your system
If your heating and cooling system features innovative energy-efficiency design, such as geothermal system, or relies on a conventional operating system, ensure that the HVAC company you choose has relevant experience with your particular system. Our technicians at Airinmotion have years of experience dealing with all kinds of systems so they can handle whichever HVAC system you have.
When seeking estimates or new or replacement heating or cooling equipment, ensure that you ask prospective companies what specific equipment brands or specific manufacturers they carry. Unlike other home improvement contractors, we often only carry a small selection of brands. If you choose to do your own price comparison, you need to research on new equipment and as such, you may need to restrict your hiring choices to companies that specialize in your equipment brand of choice. We have great respect for our clients and serve the whole of Mississauga with outstanding HVAC services. We are your number one HVAC contractor company.
