What to Look For in an HVAC Company


What to Look For in an HVAC Company

If you’re in need of expert HVAC guidance and live in the Ann Arbor, Michigan or surrounding communities, count on Haley Mechanical to offer unsurpassed service, equipment and maintenance.  We understand you want a heating/cooling system that is efficient, keeps your home or business comfortable, and that allows you to enjoy low monthly energy costs.

You may be tempted to flip through the phone book to find a heat/air company, but we wouldn’t recommend it.  In order to make the right decision and avoid problems down the road, we have a few tips that will help you choose an HVAC contractor you can trust to do the job right the first time.  Your contractor should be:

Licensed and insured.  The Ann Arbor HVAC company you choose should be able to provide you with proof that they are licensed; make sure licensing is current.  Additionally, ask for verification of general liability insurance coverage and worker’s comp insurance for the contractor’s employees.

Easy to contact.  Can you easily obtain the company’s telephone number, physical address and email address?  Can you contact the company any time day or night, in case of an emergency?  Problems pop up when you least expect them; having to wait until the next day to speak with an HVAC professional is stressful, not to mention uncomfortable when temperatures or humidity levels are unusually high.

Qualified and experienced.  Hands-on experience counts for a lot in the HVAC industry.  You want a company with technicians who are cutting-edge and stay up-to-date on ever-changing features and advancements.  Because changes in equipment become more complex, it is important that your contractor’s technicians are certified.  Our technicians are NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certified, the only organization for technician certification that is developed, owned, operated, governed and supported by the HVACR industry.

Willing to give you the details in writing.  If your Michigan HVAC contractor isn’t willing to give you a detailed written description of the work to be completed, equipment required, time frame, cost, etc., consider it a red flag.  A reputable company will be happy to give you the details in writing.

Happy to provide you with references.  A trusted company will be more than happy to provide you with referrals, so that you can contact past and current customers for their opinions about the service provided, level of quality, professionalism, etc.

Choosing the wrong Ann Arbor HVAC company can be costly in more ways than one.  To ensure that the right equipment is installed for your particular needs, that repairs are a one-trip affair rather than repeated call backs, and that you have technicians you can trust to perform exceptional work, depend on the professionals at Haley Mechanical.
