If you’ve been putting off choosing an HVAC company because you aren’t sure which one to pick, it’s time to work through the issue and decide.

With summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to establish ties with a company and schedule preventative maintenance. That might help prevent any equipment failures this summer that will temporarily leave you without air conditioning in the sweltering heat.

How do you know which company would be a good fit for you? Below are a few things to consider.

Look for a Full-Service Company

When you’re choosing an HVAC company, things like air purification may be the last thing on your mind. Maybe right now, all you want is someone to fix your air conditioning unit. But air purification might become important to you down the road, and you don’t want to have to switch companies later to get what you need.

Explore a company’s website to see if they offer some of the extras other companies don’t, such as air quality services like filtration and purification. Check if they offer whole-house generators and direct or third-party duct cleaning services. You never know how your needs might expand in the future.

Choose a Company That Offers High-Quality Brands

High-quality brands of equipment have earned their reputations, and great HVAC companies know that. That’s why a good company will offer top-notch products. You should be leery of companies that don’t offer the best brands that have stood the test of time.

At Jennings Heating and Cooling, we offer the industry’s most well-loved brands such as Carrier, Amana, and Goodman.

Pick a Company with a Great Reputation

It can be a gamble to take a chance on a new company that doesn’t have a proven track record of customer service. With companies that have been around for decades, you know what kind of service to expect. Look for one that’s well-known and loved in the community, like Jennings Heating and Cooling!

Another good indication of a solid company is one with a high rate of employee retention. If a company has long-time employees, that usually means they know how to treat people right.

Look for One Offering a Rewards Program for Preventative Maintenance

The best HVAC companies aren’t the ones who only swoop in when your equipment fails and then give you a high bill for a new unit. The best companies are the ones who try to stop your equipment from failing prematurely. They know that prevention is the best medicine.

An HVAC company that offers a rewards club that encourages preventative maintenance is a safe bet. They can help their customers save money and the hassle of untimely equipment failures.
