Your HVAC system is an important part of your home, which means you should take great pains to take good care of it. No matter the season, proper maintenance is the best way to maintain a comfortable home while limiting its impact on your monthly budget. When it comes to maintaining your HVAC system, there’s only one person who should be doing it: an HVAC maintenance professional.
In this post, insulation installation services provider WM Buffington Company, Inc. discusses the questions you should ask to properly evaluate your HVAC maintenance professional.
How Long Will the Inspection Take?
One of the things you need to know to properly evaluate your HVAC maintenance provider is how long the inspection will take. If when asked about this the provider responds with any amount of time less than 60 minutes, it might be a good idea to consider finding another professional to take over. This is because a complete inspection of your HVAC system should take around 60 minutes per system. The shorter the time they quote, the less time and effort will be put into inspecting your system.
Are They Licensed?
When hiring a contractor to inspect your HVAC or heat pump system, always make sure that the company is licensed to do the work. Keep in mind that you should only hire contractors who are compliant with local licensing requirements in order to prevent possible issues in the future.
Does the Maintenance Plan Include Evaluating the Equipment’s Performance?
After the inspection, make sure that your HVAC services provider also evaluates the equipment’s performance. This is so you both can be sure that your HVAC equipment is operating efficiently.
Will They Review Maintenance Issues With You?
Always ask the HVAC maintenance provider to review any and all maintenance issues with you. This will help you understand the findings of the maintenance visit, especially if corrective action is needed. If your contractor refuses to do so, consider looking for someone who can be cooperatative with while still doing their job.
