Finding a commercial HVAC contractor who will take care of your air conditioning or heating requirements is easy. A challenge, however, may lie in finding a company that you can trust and which offers excellent service.
In this article, Schmitt shares some of the top things that you should look for when hiring a commercial HVAC contractor.
Experience and proper accreditation. Handling commercial HVAC systems is a complex task that requires specialized expertise. That’s why you should specifically look for a contractor with a vast amount of experience in commercial HVAC systems. Check for appropriate certifications as well. Don’t forget to research the certifying body so that you can be more confident in their qualifications
Typically, there are two particular endorsements that you should consider. One is from the Better Business Bureau, which lets you know if you’re dealing with a legitimate business that can provide quality service. Another is the North American Trade Excellence (NATE), which is an objective third-party organization that evaluates businesses like heating and cooling contractors.
Comprehensive service. Make sure that your HVAC contractor can manage all of your heating and cooling needs. There’s no point in hiring multiple contractors to handle your HVAC system because one company isn’t able to provide all the services you need. Also, it’s recommended to only have one commercial HVAC contractor because this allows them to become more familiar with your particular requirements and equipment. It would also be beneficial to have a contractor that can offer 24/7 emergency services. This will give you peace of mind knowing that no matter what happens, they can help you get things under control in no time.
Local expertise. It’s usually best to work with local contractors because you can be sure that they understand and will comply with all local codes and requirements for commercial buildings. Furthermore, contractors with local expertise usually have a better understanding of your area’s climate, which allows them to provide solutions that will lead to better energy efficiency and lower energy costs.
