If you’re considering having a high-efficiency HVAC system installed in your Hayward home, it’s important that you hire a licensed HVAC contractor who is knowledgeable and experienced. At Ortiz Heating and Air Conditioning, we know the importance of having your home evaluated before you have an air conditioner installed. Even though you may already have an older system that needs replacing, it’s important to know that your equipment is the right size for your home, and has the right features for your needs.
Having an HVAC system that is too small or too large for your home can cost you money. A heating/cooling system that is too small for the areas of your home will cost you money, because the unit will run longer in an effort to keep the air inside your home at a comfortable temperature. On the other side, have an air conditioner that is too large installed, and you may notice that the humidity level inside your home is higher. When a system is too big for your needs, it will turn on and off more frequently; the most energy is used when a system begins to run, so you will pay more in energy costs. Your contractor should know all about this, and should know how to help you choose a HVAC system that is properly sized for your needs.
How can you be sure that the Bay Area HVAC contractor you choose is the best one for the job?
- Make sure he is licensed
- Interview the contractor, and be sure to ask about his level of experience and education
- Ask if he performs a home evaluation prior to installation. Reputable contractors will evaluate your home, then recommend the best system for your home
- Is he knowledgeable regarding Energy Star guidelines? Can he give you energy saving tips?
Unfortunately, some HVAC contractors are more interested in getting as much money out of the homeowner as possible, rather than providing them with air conditioning installation that will keep their home comfortable, provide quality indoor air, and save them money.
If your heating/cooling system is old and worn out, don’t simply choose the first Hayward HVAC services you come to in the phone book. At Ortiz Heating and Air Conditioning, we treat your home as if it was our own. We’re the experts in home comfort, and saving you money!
