Pocatello, ID (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
Following the release of the December 19th Idaho State Journal article, “Questions to Ask When You Need a New HVAC System,” HVACED.com (or HVAC Education) stepped in to respond, urging readers to consult a certified professional when seeking out HVAC assistance or renewal. The article discussed questions to ask about various appliances and plans when seeking a new HVAC system, including equipment, financing options, and the contractor or company itself. Though in support of asking these questions, HVAC Education strongly encouraged readers to seek out a professional with legitimate certification credentials and adequate HVAC training.
Idaho State Journal’s article mentioned three question categories homeowners should consider when searching for a new or updated HVAC system. The first category is the equipment category, encompassing inquiries about different equipment options, equipment efficiency, and its size and location. The second category, financing, includes questions regarding cost of parts and labor, any financing options, and warranties. The third and final category involves the contractor/worker, and strives to identify the contractor’s behaviors and practices, as well as any past references and schedule.
When seeking out a new HVAC system, HVAC Education urged consumers to actively search for a technician with legitimate HVAC certification, as well as plenty of training and experience. Doing so will allow the homeowner to get a greater feel for the competence and expertise of the contractor through past work and potential references and reviews. When researching a contractor or company, look for past customer reviews. In addition, check with the Better Business Bureau for records of the company, as the BBB provides both assurance that the company is, in fact, a registered outfit, as well as providing a rating for the company’s service. HVAC systems are complicated and are typically considered important—particularly in the hot summer months and freezing winter months—and should only be handled by experienced professionals with significant HVAC training.

HVAC Education urged consumers to look closely at their HVAC professionals before pulling out a checkbook or setting up an appointment. Because HVAC systems are often quite complicated and can require extensive work, hiring the contractor or team that is best for one’s needs is vital. When looking for a contractor, do not merely take a company or individual’s word at face value; instead, conduct an investigation including past customers’ experiences, and whether or not the company or individual is registered with the Better Business Bureau. Following these simple steps will help ensure a smooth, enjoyable experience with HVAC professionals.
