Contractor Search Basics

When searching for an expert, there are some basic things to check to eliminate many of the sub-standard companies. First of all, ask if they are insured then get the name of their insurance company and give them a call to verify that they have coverage. In some states, hvac pros must be licensed and a company must have at least one employee that has a valid state license.

You can find out if your state requires a license on your state's webpage. If your state requires a license, ask the prospective dealer to see a copy of their license certificate and verify that it is current.

Next, you can check with the Better Business Bureau or the Attorney General's office for your state to see if they have a history of complaints. You should also ask for at least three references from previous customers. Then, take the time and either call them or preferably go to their home to check out the contractor's work.

It is a good idea to do all of the above and create a list of three approved pros. Then, you can begin to get quotes for your project and find the best value.
