April 27, 2017

At PWA Heating & Cooling Inc, we get that choosing a company to provide HVAC installation and service in Plainfield is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t have to give up the factors that matter to you. You want excellent service from a dependable company. Before you make a choice, we have some advice for what to search for in the company that will be responsible for your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Be sure to find some information before you start hunting for a company. Take a look at your system as is and take some notes on maintenance history, past issues and its model. You should also take a look at the license and insurance requirements for heating and air conditioning service providers in Plainfield.

Get personal recommendations. Take some time to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any favorite companies. Knowing someone had a helpful interaction with a company can be a valuable way to know what their service is like.

Get proposals from multiple companies. Get the itemized bids in writing so you can study the different cost, energy efficient and warranty information. You’ll also want to see referrals from current customers. One company may give the most reasonable prices, but it may not really be the best value. Think about how these factors will affect your home comfort in the time to come before you choose.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Don’t give your business to a who tells you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without coming to your home. A good heating and air condition company will complete a thorough examination of your house and your current system to examine your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take special interest in your initial meeting with any contractor that surveys your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to involved with this company to make your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good initial impression, you may want to pick some other company.
