How to Pick the Right HVAC Company

October 23, 2019 | Blog

Like many important components of your home, your climate control system is something you rely on every day, even if you may not consciously think about it much. Your HVAC system keeps you cool and comfortable in any weather, working to protect you from Mother Nature’s extremes. The very last thing you want during the blazing heat of summer or the dipping temperatures of winter is a broken heating and cooling system.

You and your family should be able to rely on consistent internal temperature, no matter what is going on outside the walls of your home, which is why picking the right HVAC company is important. It could mean the difference between relaxing on the couch in the AC and spending excess time and money in the humid summer heat dealing with a broken system.

There are plenty of heating and cooling companies out there, so how do you determine the company that will put you, your home and your family first? When setting out to hire an HVAC company, look for these key standouts.

NATE Certification

Certifications from reputable organizations can help you determine which technicians have continued their education and stayed up-to-date on ever-evolving HVAC technology. The NATE Certification Program is designed to “help HVAC employers hire, train and develop the best technicians possible, by providing a clear path to professional development and different stages of their career. When selecting an HVAC company with NATE certified technicians, you can be confident that you’re getting professional service backed by certified field education.


HVAC systems pay no mind to the calendar and can break at any time. When selecting the best heating and cooling company, keep their availability in mind. If your AC breaks down on a Friday night, will you have to wait in the heat or cold until someone can get to you on Monday? Choosing a company with availability seven days a week ensures you’ll never be stuck without service over a long weekend.


Reviews from previous customers are a great way to gain insight into the quality of a company. Consult their reviews on their website, as well as on Google, Yelp, Facebook or any other review site to help narrow your search. You should look for comments about the quality and timeliness of service, friendliness and knowledgeability of technicians, product selection, and cost. The more reviews the better, as they can help you make the most informed decision.

Quality Control Staff

An important component of HVAC service is the quality of their products. Even the most skilled technician can only do so much with faulty or broken parts. You’re more likely to avoid issues with your system if you choose an HVAC company that quality controls its parts and products. These quality control staff members work diligently to pinpoint any defects or broken parts, so paying customers to receive only the highest quality products.

Custom Designed Systems

Each home is different and has different heating and cooling needs. Your neighbor down the street has a house that is set up completely differently from yours. Choose an HVAC company that understands this, and is willing to design a custom system for your home that will provide maximum comfort and energy savings. This way your family will stay comfortable all year, and you won’t spend extra money on your energy bill, heating or cooling parts of your home that don’t need it.


A quality HVAC company backs its work with warranty coverage. If your AC breaks down due to an installation error, it doesn’t make sense for you to have to pay again for someone to come fix it. Look for a company that stands behind its technicians and labor with a quality warranty. Purchasing an AC and heater is a big investment that should last you for many years to come. A 10-Year Warranty gives you the peace of mind that you’re covered for the majority of the life of your system.

Money-Back Guarantee

Just like a warranty, a money-back guarantee lets you know that the company stands behind its products and service. You’ll also feel more confident knowing that if you aren’t satisfied with the service you receive, you’re covered.
