Finding an HVAC Contractor in Fort Walton, Destin, San Destin, Miramar, Navarre, Crestview, Val’P, Niceville or South Walton

It doesn’t matter what county you’re in, staying warm during the winter and cool during the summer is imperative. An HVAC contractor is an important part of your seasonal indoor comfort. HVAC stands for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning. An HVAC contractor is responsible for the installation and maintenance of heating, cooling, and ventilation systems in homes and buildings. Choosing the right (delete this Destin) HVAC contractor to install a new system or inspect or upgrade an existing one can be as important to the systems operation as purchasing the right equipment. Choosing a reliable HVAC contractor should be a simple process. The problem is that many people have no idea what to look for in a competent contractor to take care of their heating and cooling needs and that can make the search difficult. Whether you need repairs or a new heating or air conditioning system installed, it’s important to find an HVAC contractor you can trust to provide quality work and reliable service.

The Importance of Finding the Right HVAC Contractor

heating installationIf you’re looking for a new installation or upgrade of an older system, a qualified HVAC contractor needs to make a visual inspection of the site or existing system. If any contractor attempts to give you an estimate over the phone without first checking out your project or investigating a problem in person you should avoid doing business with them. They may be less interested in getting the job done right than they are in getting your money.

An HVAC contractor will calculate he square footage of your structure, and go through a thorough checklist to determine the heat-load. He can then provide you with a written quote. If you need a new system, a qualified HVAC contractor can often provide you with a selection of systems to suit your situation.

If you’ve been having problems with your existing heating and cooling system a HVAC contractor should ask for details and following a thorough examination should then provide you with viable solutions. Often it’s a matter of an existing unit not properly sized for the structure and a qualified HVAC contractor can recommend new or additional equipment that will meet your home or business needs. Over time you may find that the proper size system will be more energy efficient and therefore more cost effective.

What to Look for in a Qualified HVAC Contractor

Don’t feel embarrassed to ask for references when looking for the right HVAC contractor. Maybe someone you know has had experience with an HVAC contractor so ask around. Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if the individual contractor or company has had any complaints filed and if these complaints were resolved. Angie’s List is another good source. It’s important to remember that many HVAC companies take on hundreds of projects and jobs a year so if they only have a complaint or two they may still be considered as very reputable. Of course an ongoing history of consumer complaints against any HVAC contractor obviously represents a problem.

Make certain that any contractor you are considering is licensed, insured and bonded. A HVAC contractor is required to take specific tests to ensure they have the necessary skills before they can receive a license. It’s also imperative that they carry the proper insurance including workers compensation and that they are bonded to protect you against damages to your home.

Check to see that any HVAC contractor you consider has a listed business address and telephone number. Contractors that have a physical office or shop are probably more likely to be an established business. Any reliable company is usually willing to give you their address, phone number and alternate numbers for emergency services. If the contractor doesn’t have a physical business address or adequate contact information you have no way of being sure they will be around should you need to have under warranty repairs done on the equipment.

Find out what type of equipment a HVAC contractor uses to test your heating system and how they detect potential levels of carbon monoxide to verify the safety of your home or business. What methods do they use to properly handle refrigerants and make certain they don’t pollute the air? Any HVAC contractor that handles refrigerants should possess an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) license.

Protecting your Investment with a Reliable HVAC Contractor

You don’t need to accept the first bid that you receive. You should talk with several HVAC contractors to get a number of quotes that you can compare. If you have doubts about any company continue your search until you find one that meets your needs and that you feel comfortable working with. Don’t simply accept the lowest bid because it seems like the cheapest offer. Ask the contractor to explain how he arrived at his estimate. Don’t cut corners when it comes to equipment and installation, yet look for the bid that will give you the best deal for your money.

When it comes time to install, upgrade or repair your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system you want to choose a qualified HVAC contractor. A qualified contractor will act in a professional manner. They will be on time for appointments, or if they have an emergency they will call to let you know.

Remember that you don’t want the cheapest bid. You want the best bid and that’s one where you will get quality equipment and service at the best price. The heating and air conditioning equipment in your home or business is a long term investment and you want to make certain the Destin HVAC contractor you choose will be there to help protect that investment.
