When you need help with something as important as your home’s HVAC system, it’s vital to select a heating contractor whom you can trust. Making this decision can be the difference between having a warm, cozy home or having to wear your winter jacket indoors.

Tips for Choosing a Great Heating Contractor

Here at A/C Medic, we have been in this industry for over 20 years, and we’re well aware that not every heating contractor is as skilled and knowledgeable as our team members. So, to help you find a reliable heating contractor, we’ve created this blog to highlight some key features you should be looking for.

  • Professional Credentials: A trustworthy heating contractor should be licensed and certified to do work in your state. If the person claiming to know how to fix your furnace doesn’t have these essential certifications, choose someone else.
  • Proven Experience: In addition to being licensed and certified, a great heating contractor should be able to tell you their experience in dealing with different types of furnaces, heat pumps, and other components. Be wary of anyone who is brand-new to the industry, as they might not have the skills required to work on your specific system.
  • Positive Reviews: Before hiring a heating contractor, take the time to look up the professional online to check out other clients’ reviews and testimonials. If you’re having trouble finding information for someone, you can also ask local friends or family members for recommendations of people they’ve worked with in the past.
  • Service Options: Some heating contractors strictly work with furnaces or only offer maintenance or repair services, whereas others, such as our local business, can offer comprehensive services for all your HVAC needs. Choosing someone with experience and knowledge of all types of HVAC systems can be great if you’re not sure of the extent of your heating issues.
