Questions to Ask Your HVAC Company When Scheduling an Appointment

Questions to ask a HVAC company

Do you need to schedule an appointment for your heating and cooling unit? Are you in the market for a new unit, or are you wondering how much time your current unit has left before it’s ready for a replacement? You want to get your money’s worth when you hire an HVAC contractor, and you can start by asking the right questions when you call. Ernst Heating & Cooling is ready to hear from you!

Is your company licensed and insured?

While it might be tempting to hire the guy who’s advertising on social media, you’re taking a risk if he’s not licensed and insured. When you hire an HVAC contractor who is licensed, bonded, and insured, you’re protecting yourself against scammers and poor workmanship. Licensed HVAC contractors must be reviewed by a licensing board, giving you an extra level of confidence. Also, if something goes wrong with your “economy” guy’s work, you may not be able to make any warranty claims.

How do I know if my unit needs a repair?

Sometimes it’s obvious your furnace needs help: You wake up to a cold house and know something’s awry. Other subtle hints include a home that doesn’t get warm or cool enough or strange noises when the system kicks on. These warning signs tell you it’s time to call Ernst Heating & Cooling.

Are you available 24 hours a day?

Even the fanciest HVAC units don’t care what time it is when they break down. Building a relationship with an HVAC company that offers 24-hour service means you won’t be huddled under the covers for days waiting on a repair.

Do you have a maintenance plan?

A maintenance plan can feel like unnecessary spending until you enroll in one and realize your HVAC unit has been running steadily without breakdowns or blips. Regularly scheduled maintenance plans like the Ernst Comfort Plan maximize your unit’s efficiency by catching problems before they start and keeping things running smoothly all year round.

Do you offer financing?

We get it. Not everyone has money put away for a new heating and cooling system, and that’s why Ernst Heating & Cooling pairs with Ally Lending to offer you a monthly payment plan that works with your wallet.
