Get started guide to choosing your HVAC company

choosing an HVAC company

Your HVAC unit differentiates a sticky summer and a cool evening at home. That’s why you want the best professionals taking care of this vital investment. Who can you trust? Ernst Heating & Cooling has a unique combination of more than 70 years in the business and the most up-to-date training and education on today’s newest HVAC technologies. Are you in the market for an HVAC company in the Metro East? Here are five considerations to help you choose the best one.

Licensing and education

HVAC systems are intricately designed. HVAC contractors must be licensed, bonded, and insured, protecting against scammers and shoddy work. Ernst Heating & Cooling is licensed, bonded, and insured. If you opt to use someone who doesn’t hold these credentials, you risk voiding the warranty on your HVAC system.

Professional memberships help you stay on top of the ever-changing HVAC technology. Ernst Heating & Cooling’s current membership includes:

  • Air Conditioning Contractors of America
  • International Ground Source Heat Pump Association
  • Indoor Air Quality Association

Customer testimony

A good HVAC company is committed to stellar customer service. Ask your friends and family, or check Google and other review sites to learn more. Look for companies with professional HVAC technicians who take the time to explain what they are doing. Do the technicians arrive on time? Do they have a system to verify their identity before stepping into your home? Do they stand behind their work? A history of good service offers you peace of mind for your home.

A thorough home evaluation before installation

A smart HVAC company isn’t going to show up at your house with your new unit sight unseen. Many variables affect your selection, and trained HVAC technicians can evaluate your needs according to your home’s size, duct system, insulation, and other factors. Ask for a written evaluation of your home’s current needs so you can compare various options.

24/7 availability

Your air conditioner doesn’t always give you a warning before you find yourself sweating at home. Establish a relationship with an HVAC contractor who offers emergency service. With Ernst Heating & Cooling, you know you can rely on service in just hours. Sign up for our Ernst Comfort Plan, and you can depend on regular tune-ups, repair discounts, and potential savings when our HVAC techs catch problems early.

Special offers and financing

HVAC systems are significant household investments. At Ernst Heating & Cooling, we understand that some families don’t have a “slush fund” for emergency repairs. That’s why we offer financing through Ally Lending. We also have monthly specials on new units, air cleaners, thermostats, and other essential HVAC features. Always ask your HVAC contractor about current promotions and financing opportunities.

Ernst Heating & Cooling believes we should earn your repeat business with best practices and technicians trained in the latest HVAC technology.
