Here at Custom Air and Heat Inc., we want to help you stay cool and comfortable in your home or office. If you are experiencing problems with your cooling system, you’ll need the help of a qualified air conditioning contractor. To help you make sure that you’re getting the top-notch service you deserve, in this article our team will go over a few key qualities you should look for when choosing an air conditioning contractor.

  • Proper Licensing – The first things you should look for in an air conditioning contractor are the right licensing and insurance. Trade licenses prove that a contractor has completed a certain level of training and has met certain quality standards and serve as a way to show clients that the contractor can do the work they need.
  • Insurance Coverages- In addition to a contractor’s licenses, you should also ask about their insurance coverage. Accidents can happen even to experienced technicians like our team at Custom Air and Heat Inc., so you’ll need a contractor with comprehensive insurance to make sure that you have the financial protection you need in that scenario. Reputable contractors will carry both liability and workers’ compensation insurance to make sure that you won’t have to pay for any damages or injuries that occur during the project. An honest company will also be expecting this question and will have the documentation ready upon request–any hesitation to provide it is a sign that you want to move on.
  • Client References- Lastly, a reliable air conditioning contractor should provide a list of client references, including their contact information. Calling a few of the contractor’s past clients will let you get a better sense of what the company is like to work with and the quality of the results you can expect. We at Custom Air and Heat Inc. are proud of our results and our service, and we are happy to put you in touch with some of our many satisfied customers so that you can judge our results for yourself.
