When it comes to getting an HVAC unit installed in your home, you probably take into consideration factors such as the cost of the unit, the reputation of the manufacturer, and any reviews on that specific unit. What you might fail to look into, however, is the kind of technician that you are hiring to install your new HVAC unit. Hiring a good HVAC technician to install your HVAC unit is absolutely crucial to ensure that your new HVAC unit functions properly and lasts long. Knowing that, you’ll want to make sure that when you shop for a new HVAC unit, that you shop for a quality technician as well. Similarly, when it comes to HVAC repairs and maintenance, a good or bad HVAC technician will be the difference between a quality, lasting repair, and a bad, faulty repair. Taking all of this into account, it’s evident that your HVAC technician matters. To make your life easier, the team of professional HVAC technicians at D&T Air Conditioning and Heating have put together a list of traits that you’ll want to look for when hiring an HVAC technician.

They Provide you with References

A solid HVAC technician with experience will be able to provide you with references so that you are able to get an idea of how they work before you hire them. If an HVAC technician refuses to give you any references, then chances are that their past clients weren’t satisfied with their work. On the other hand, an HVAC technician that quickly provides you with references is likely confident in their abilities. Just because you are provided with references, however, doesn’t mean that the HVAC technician is worth hiring. Feel free to take your time in order to contact one or some of the provided references to make sure they your money is being well-spent on this technician.

They Have Experience with your HVAC Unit’s Brand

Different HVAC manufacturers will have small differences in their HVAC units, making their repair and installation processes unique. Keeping this in mind, make sure that you ask the technician whether or not they have worked with HVAC units of the same brand as yours or similar to yours. This will ensure that the technician knows what they’re doing and that you’re not getting ripped off.

They Provide a Detailed Estimate Beforehand

Before doing any work at all, an HVAC technician should provide you with a detailed estimate that goes over exactly what they will be doing as well as a thorough breakdown of each cost. If the HVAC technician insists on doing the work before charging you, then walk away from the offer. Also, make sure that if you are provided an estimate, that the final cost doesn’t vary too much and that no extra expenses are added to the estimate that was agreed upon. If any expenses show up after the agreement, then you have the right to refuse to pay the additional costs.

They are Trained, Licensed and Insured

Make sure that the HVAC contractor that you choose requires its technicians to be fully trained, licensed and insured. By doing so, you’ll make sure that the HVAC technician will know what they’re doing and that they are qualified to do the work they are doing. Not only that, but you only avoid any problems in case the technician makes a mistake (we all make mistakes – regardless of experience!) during the repair or installation.

They offer Satisfaction Guarantee on Their Work

If the HVAC company that you’re considering doesn’t offer satisfaction guarantee, walk away. A company that prides itself in its technicians’ ability to perform jobs that will satisfy customers will happily offer satisfaction guarantee. With that said, make sure you ask the HVAC technician beforehand whether or not they offer some sort of satisfaction guarantee.

Finding the right qualities in an HVAC technician may seem like an extra nuisance to have to deal with, but spending time and effort to find the right technician for you is worth it.
