Key To Choosing an HVAC Company

There are many HVAC companies in Portland, OR.  You want to choose and HVAC company that is there for you, not your wallet.  Any time you are looking for a heating and cooling company to bring comfort to your home, whether it is Comfort Solutions or another company, you may want to check out these tips to ensure that you are getting what you pay for.

What To Look For:

Ask Friends and Family – Referrals are great!  Many companies offer some type of payment program for referrals.

Trust Your Gut – The company you pick will most likely be the one that you will have a long term relationship with.  There employees will be coming into your home for routine maintenance and repairs.

Do Your Homework – Do they have a CCB number?  Are they NATE certified? Are they a member for the Better Business Bureau?  Do they have a long standing reputation?  There is no point on going with a company that may not be in business very long.  If they go out of business then their warranty for labor and possibly parts will be invalid.

Check Out the Reviews – Every company will have some bad reviews.  No one, not even a company can please everyone.  What you can do is look at the picture as a whole.  Do they respond to their feedback?  Do the positive reviews outweigh the few bad apples?

Price Isn’t Everything – The lowest price may not be the best choice. You want to make sure you are not getting something the company is just trying to unload.  Make sure they are not excluding permits, or warranties.  Some companies will cut pricing by cutting warranties.  Always check the fine print.

The heating and cooling industry is not regulated so you need to make sure you pick a company that will take care of you and  your family.  When it comes to making one of the biggest purchases for your home, you want to make sure you get your money’s worth.
