April 27, 2017

At Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning, we know choosing a company to provide HVAC installation and service in York is a big deal. When it comes to your home comfort, you shouldn’t make sacrifices. You want excellent service from a trustworthy company. Before you make a choice, we have suggestions for what to look for in the company that will be taking care of your heating and cooling service.

Do some research. Make sure to collect some information before you start your search. Take a look at your your system now 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 York.

Get personal recommendations. Ask around to see if your friends, family and co-workers have any recommendations. Knowing someone had a great experience 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 also need see referrals from current customers. One company may present the lowest prices, but it may not actually be the best value. Think about how these factors will impact your home comfort in the long run before you make your final decision.

Plan on a detailed home evaluation. Never give your business to a who offers you a quote over the phone for a new or replacement system without looking at your home. A good heating and air condition company will complete a thorough examination of your house and your current system to figure out your needs and the best system to meet them.

First impressions matter. You should take note of your primary meeting with any contractor that comes to your home. Make sure they are professional, friendly and punctual. You’re going to work with this company to make your home comfortable year-round. If they don’t make a good first impression, you may want to pick a different company.
