At Ortiz Heating & Air Conditioning, we know choosing the most qualified company and technicians can be tough, particularly if you are not familiar with how your A/C actually functions. As long as your air conditioner works, there is little cause for concern; you really just don’t think about it. But, what happens when your air conditioning malfunctions, or you need to have a new system installed? It’s important to plan and prepare, as like most equipment, heating/cooling systems have a limited lifespan.
What steps should you take when choosing the best HVAC company in the San Francisco Bay Area?
First of all, perform some research. Today, the Internet makes it fairly simple to learn about the reputation and customer satisfaction of a company. If the company you are considering has a website, check out the “about us” page to learn more about how long the company has been in business, their experience, etc. Many company websites have customer testimonials as well, which can help in your decision.
Are there reviews elsewhere? Forums, social media, and other sites makes it possible for you to learn about past clients’ experiences. Many companies today have Facebook pages, and there are lots of HVAC forums where members can ask questions or find posts regarding a particular company.
What should the heating & cooling company share on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites? Trusted HVAC companies share photos of past projects, and are happy to interact with others who ask questions or want to learn more about results and services provided. This is a great way to build trust.
Talking to friends, neighbors, and co-workers is another way to learn more about potential heating and cooling companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. Who do they recommend? While not everyone you know will have had maintenance, installation, or repairs performed recently, those who have had work done will likely be willing to give you an unbiased view regarding the company, quality of equipment and service performed, prices, etc. Did the company provide a guarantee or warranty? These are things you need to know.
Lastly, once you have a handful of companies you are considering, be sure they provide quotes. Keep in mind that when it comes to the brands/reputation of equipment used by the company, time to complete your project, and skill/training of technicians, the cheapest quote is not always the best option.
