HVAC Technicians: Questions to Ask Before Hiring


Hiring the right person to work on your HVAC system is important to both your unit and your pocket. With the right, experienced HVAC technician you can have your system properly serviced or repaired with minimal time and financial burden. There are a few things you will want to consider about your technician prior to hiring that we’ve listed below.


How Much Experience They Have in the HVAC Industry

How long they have been in the HVAC industry can be a great sign of what kind of work they will do. Though newer technicians can also do a good job, a seasoned professional is key to a fast and easy repair. It may also help to know if they have experience with the specific brand of your system.

Are they willing to provide references of past clients? This is a good sign that they are confident in their work because their clients were pleased with the work they did for them.


Licensed and Insured

Most states require that HVAC technicians are licensed and you should most definitely not hire a technician who is not. You can even ask the specific technician for their licensing number and look them up on the state contractor licensing board  to be sure they have the licensing they are claiming.


Refunds, Warranties, and Guarantees

If your home has a newer system, it may fall under a warranty. If this is the case it is important for your technician to follow proper warranty protocol. However, if you are out of the warranty period, you may want to ask your technician for a guarantee on the work they provide. Lastly, you should openly discuss the companies refund policy if the repair does not last.
