At Builder’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help make finding qualified professionals to work on your HVAC system much easier. Especially when you are in a rush to find help in a hurry, it is easy to make rushed decisions and work with the wrong company. These mistakes can be costly. Here are the top 3 things to look for when you are looking for a heating company to work on your heating in Denver.
License and Insurance
The first thing you need to look for is whether the company has a current license and insurance, including workers compensation insurance. Current licensure tells you that the company is in good standing with the city and state where it conducts business, which is crucial in that it tells you that the company has worked hard to maintain the necessary certifications and training required by law. Insurance protects you from liability in the event that the contractor or one of his or her employees is injured while working on your property.
Ask the contractor whether they can provide you with a number of recent references that you can call and ask about their services and experience with the company. This is crucial and allows you to see from another consumer’s perspective whether the company is worth doing business with. Make sure that the work was completed in the time frame specified, for the amount that the contractor initially indicated, and whether the reference would use them again or recommend them to others.
Written and Detailed Estimates
Although you may be in a hurry to find a quality contractor, you should always take enough time to collect a few estimates. You should plan to get at least three estimates from different contractors, making sure that each one provides you with a written and itemized list of the scope of work that will be involved. You should never be in such a hurry that you cannot do your due diligence and at least get estimates for the work to be done.
