Choosing a Murrieta HVAC contractor can be a daunting task, particularly
when you are experiencing an issue and need a repair quickly. You may
be tempted to accept the first bid that comes your way, but this will
only increase your chances of poor workmanship, which leads to an unsatisfactory
result or an even more expensive second repair. How do you make a good
choice? Read our blog further for three valuable tips.
Ask About Licenses & Insurance
Any reputable HVAC contractor
will have the proper licenses and certifications for the area they operate
in, and will happily either show you them or give you the information
to look them up yourself to verify. Check with your local municipality
and see about the necessary licenses, and then ask each contractor you
consider for this license information.
Likewise, you should always hire a contractor who is insured. A professional
should be able to fix your issue without trouble, but in the event a mistake
happens and further damage is done to your home, you want to make sure
they are fully ensured and the problem will be rectified quickly without
issue at the company’s expense, provided by their insurance.
Research Their Complaints
The Better Business Bureau should be one of the first places you go when
researching a company. Visit their website and look into their reputation.
If they have a high volume of complaints, then you may want to consider
other options. If they have a solid reputation, or even have an award
from the Better Business Bureau, then you can trust that you will receive
Likewise, check their scores on review sites like Angie’s List and
Yelp to see what other consumers are saying. Take reviews with a grain
of salt, as they may not be entirely reflective, but a low rating and
high volume of bad reviews is a tell-tale sign that their service is not
at a high standard of quality.
Does your initial estimate sound like a reasonable price? Find out if it
actually is! Get an estimate from several different contractors before
making your choice. Likewise, you may not always want to choose the cheapest
contractor; those that are “too-good-to-be-true” on their
pricing usually are exactly that, and will likely perform shoddy work
with low-quality parts or with an unskilled technician.
