It’s not an exaggeration to say that there is a sea of HVAC companies that provide their services to home and business owners throughout Colorado.
The number is well into the dozens, which makes your task of selecting the right one a challenging one.
There’s a fair amount of risk involved in choosing the wrong HVAC company, after all. You could select a service provider that says they know about a certain system installation or brand of AC unit, only to find that they’re not the experts they said they were.
Even worse, you could choose to purchase an expensive, modern furnace or boiler from a ‘reputable’ HVAC company, only to experience malfunctions and other problems down the line due to poor installation.
So, how can you increase the likelihood that the HVAC company you choose to deal with actually ends up being reliable, knowledgeable, and professional? At Front Range HVAC, we want your home or business to be in the best hands when the time comes for furnace, air conditioner, or other HVAC equipment replacement or servicing—whether that means you choose us or not!
To that end, here are some things to consider when choosing which HVAC company to entrust with your heaving, cooling, or ventilation project.
The ‘Big 3’ HVAC Company Criteria
In our years of doing business in Colorado, we’ve seen the worst of the worst within the HVAC industry. We’re talking about fly-by-night contractors, dishonest advertising, and downright unethical business practices.
Number one on the list of the the ‘big three’ HVAC company attributes is recent, verified, and positive customer experiences.
Look to Others
To avoid selecting one of the ‘bad apples’ in the HVAC industry, it might be helpful to look at honest, objective online reviews. Thankfully, Google makes this incredibly easy—just do a quick internet search using Google, and you’ll be presented with page after page of detailed customer reviews you can use to help make your decision.
During your internet search, don’t get hung up on one or two negative reviews. Take the entirety of the reviews into consideration, and use the ‘overall’ star score to arrive at your appraisal of the HVAC company you’re thinking of going with.
If the company has less than a handful of positive reviews, or if there seems to be a recurring pattern of unsatisfactory reviews, it’s probably best to look elsewhere.
The next thing to consider when choosing your HVAC company is their association with major brands.
The Brand Matters
Not all HVAC brands are created equal.
An HVAC company that doesn’t specialize in selling and servicing products from a reputable, established HVAC manufacturer is an HVAC company that might not be your best pick.
At Front Range HVAC, we’ve worked hard to become proven experts with all Carrier brand HVAC systems including furnaces, air conditioners, and more. We’re proud of this affiliation, and any HVAC company you select should have a similar level of familiarity with a well-known HVAC equipment manufacturer like Carrier.
Finally, the third thing you should consider on your journey to find the ideal HVAC contractor is their team.
The People Are the Value
There’s a common trait found with HVAC companies that become successful and grow their businesses year over year. That common trait is that they have knowledgeable, hard-working people that are the core of their operation.
Because you’re considering spending multiple thousands of dollars with an HVAC company, you want to be extra-sure that the people you’re dealing with are honest, trained, certifiable experts.
Look at the ‘About Us’ page of their website. Click through to see who is running their company. Take a moment to get to know the team that will be supporting any work that you agree to have done on your home or commercial building.
These are the people that are going to be there when you need support in the future. Make sure they’re worthy to do business with you!
