If you’ve moved into a new neighborhood and require HVAC services, you now face the challenge of finding a local HVAC contractor that you can trust and rely on, and this task can be particularly daunting for the first-time homeowner who’s never had to do anything like this before. Horn is an HVAC company in Pennsylvania with more than 40 years of experience, and we have some advice that will help you choose the right heating and cooling company whether you live here in the Commonwealth or in another state.
Selecting the Right HVAC Company:
• Request and Vet Credentials
Proper credentials are the best place to start when you need to choose the right heating and cooling company. If you’re new to Pennsylvania, you should know that there’s no such thing as an HVAC contractor license in this state. However, individual HVAC technicians must be certified at the local level and maintain that certification. Technicians that work with refrigerants must possess Grade B refrigeration engineer certification. The company itself must have a business license, and it’s also prevalent for most HVAC companies to possess home improvement contractor certification.
• Select an Experienced HVAC Contractor
Experience matters, and if you choose Horn, you do so with the confidence that we have more than four decades of experience. You want a company that has been in this business for a long time and which ensures continued education for its people because HVAC technologies are constantly evolving. It also gives you peace of mind that we are vested in the community we serve and that we’re going to be here in the months and years ahead to continue standing behind our work.
• Reviews and Referrals
Online reviews are another useful tool at your disposal when researching to choose the right heating and cooling company. Sites like Angi, HomeAdvisor, Nextdoor, and even Google reviews can give you great insight into the kind of workmanship and customer service that a company delivers on a consistent basis. If you’re searching for an HVAC contractor to perform an installation, then you may also want to ask for referrals from similar past jobs, and make sure to follow through on them.
• Competitive Pricing and Guarantees
Pricing matters too, so we recommend calling around to several or more HVAC companies in your area for pricing on the service you need. That will give you an idea if a price is too high or too low. We also recommend considering whatever warranties or guarantees are provided in order to learn how the company intends to stand behind its work.
