Hiring the right HVAC company can spell the difference between an HVAC system that runs smoothly year-round and a system with continual problems and glitches. Here are a few things you’ll want to know about finding the Kentucky HVAC company that can best meet your needs.
Pay Attention to Licensing
All HVAC technicians in Kentucky must be licensed by the Department of Housing, Buildings, and Construction to work in the state. This license shows a technician has had at least 3,000 hours of experience and spent two years or more working under the supervision of a licensed master contractor. It ensures the technician who comes to your home has the skills needed to do the job at hand.
Ask About Insurance
Never allow an uninsured HVAC technician to work on your system. Insurance is required by law, and it protects you from liability if a technician is injured while working on your heating or cooling system.
Other Important Questions
A proper license and insurance policy are important but not the only things to pay attention to when hiring an HVAC company. Here are a few other important questions you’ll want to ask:
- Are you an authorized dealer for my HVAC system? Authorized dealers have extra training to handle the systems they work with. They also have parts on hand if something needs to be replaced.
- How long have you been in business?
- Do you have reviews or recommendations from other clients? It’s wise to hear what others have to say about an HVAC company before paying for expensive work.
- What is the total cost of the job? A good HVAC company will offer a free estimate for your approval, before beginning work on your system.
