There are a lot of people out there claiming to be HVAC specialists and then failing to deliver—we see it every day and we end up having to clean up their mess. We want to protect you from these HVAC specialists fraudulently representing themselves. As cooling and heating contractors covering Burlington County, NJ, and the surrounding counties and regions, we’ll give you some insight on the practices of a true HVAC professional. If you don’t see your HVAC service specialists doing these things, it’s a red flag.
Don’t Forget the “V”- Of course, HVAC stands for “Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. The Ventilation part of this equation is just as important as everything else. If you get a contractor who’s concerned with replacing your expensive appliances without first paying attention to your ventilation systems to make sure they’re on point, you should be concerned.
HVAC is a System, Not Just One Appliance – Great HVAC contractors understand that the entirety of the system works together to bring great heating and/or cooling to the property in question. Your ducts and insulation are all part of that system, not just the heater and air conditioner.
Precise Calculations are Important – A/C and heating units are no small expenditure, so it’s important to know that different systems have different capacities and cooling capabilities. HVAC experts know that an HVAC system should be built based on the size and needs of the property, instead of just paying attention to a budget.
Good Contractors Know Carbon Monoxide – Combustion safety and the control of carbon monoxide emissions are an essential part of being a great HVAC contractor. When a carbon monoxide alarm goes off and you have to contact an HVAC professional, don’t settle for simply changing the batteries in your detector—your HVAC specialist should do an in-depth analysis of your system.
“Cheapest” Isn’t Always “Best” – It’s good to save money, but it’s also important to understand that high quality services and appliances cost money. When companies are battling to achieve the lowest price, who knows what corners they will cut to achieve that pricing? Be very careful, you want the best, most cost-effective choice, not the cheapest.
Skilled HVAC Pros Put Performance First – Your system should be contoured to your property, and be an energy efficient heating and cooling powerhouse. You don’t want to spend any more money on heating and cooling than you have to. The entirety of your system works together. Only accept help from contractors that understand this.
