Qualities to Look for in an HVAC Contractor

heating-system-upgradesNew properties usually don’t start construction until the spring, when the weather is more pleasant and work can be conducted without delays caused by snow or cold temperatures. But such projects are usually in the planning stages at this point of the year, and when it comes to new structures in this part of the world, a reliable HVAC system is absolutely necessary for the building to stay safe and comfortable.

For that, you need the services of a quality HVAC contractor: someone who knows how to work with a larger construction team, and who can install the right system for the space regardless of the circumstances. There are a number of companies in the area which can serve as HVAC contractors, but it pays to find the right service for the job in question instead of relying on someone less suitable. There are several qualities to look for in an HVAC contractor, which can include the following.


Independent verification of the company’s credentials and reliability is an absolute must when choosing an HVAC contractor to partner with. That starts with the endorsement of various HVAC companies such as Bryant and Carrier, as well as objective third parties such as ConEdison. In particular, look for the endorsement of NATE, which stands for North American Technician Excellence. They’re an organization dedicated to honest, objective evaluation of the technical skills required for contractor work. They only give their endorsement to companies that meet the highest standards of dedication and skill. NATE certification is a sure sign that an HVAC contractor will do the job right.

Emergency Services

Many HVAC technicians offer emergency repair services: arriving at customers’ homes anytime, day or night to fix an issue promptly. This is exactly the kind of dedication an HVAC contractor needs when a building is going up for the first time. One never knows when a serious problem is going to crop up and the attention of an expert is needed to keep the project on track. A company that offers 24/7 services will be able to respond quickly no matter what, while a company that doesn’t may be slow to respond in the event of the unexpected.

Expertise on a Variety of Systems

Every new residence is unique and what works for one building may not work for another. HVAC systems vary widely, in order to meet the specific needs of the building in question. When assembling a contractor team, it pays to find a company with knowledge about a wide variety of system. That allows them to offer specific advice in the planning stages about what kind of system will work best and to work around any potential issues that could arise. It also gives them the expertise to ensure that the new system is installed correctly and that it will perform as needed without problems for many years to come.
