How to Choose a Heating and Air Conditioning Company Posted April 27, 2017 At Garoken Energy Co. Inc., we get that selecting a company to provide home comfort system installation and service in Beaverton is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t have to give up the factors that matter to you. You want excellent service from a dependable company. Before you make a choice, we have some advice for what to watch for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service. Do some research. Don’t forget to collect some information before you start looking. Take a look at your system as is and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also take a look at the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Beaverton. Get personal recommendations. See if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a good experience with a company can be a valuable way to know what to anticipate. Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized bids in writing so you can compare cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You should see referrals from current customers. A company may give the most reasonable prices, but it may not really be the best value. Think about how these factors will impact your home comfort in the future before you decide. Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Avoid any company who gives you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without visiting your home. A good heating and air condition company will do a thorough examination of your house and your current system to examine your needs and the best system to meet them. First impressions matter. You should take note of your first meeting with any contractor that surveys your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to involved with this company to keep your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good initial impression, you may want to choose another company. Don’t compromise when selecting a heating and cooling company. This list should help keep you on track. If you’d like to know more about Garoken Energy Co.
