Heating and Air Conditioning Contractors: Where to Find the Best Service Providers in Your Local Area

By YasmeenP Subscribe to RSS | May 28th 2012 | Views:

If you’re currently in the market for a heating and air conditioning contractor, you may be a bit overwhelmed, particularly if you’ve never searched for an HVAC technician previously. Don’t worry! There are plenty of resources that can help you in choosing the best HVAC contractor for the job you need done.

One of the top places to search for heating and air conditioning contractor reviews is your local Better Business Bureau. All you have to do is go to your area’s BBB website and check out what fellow consumers are saying about your city’s HVAC contractors. For example, if you’re looking for a trusted Louisville heating and air conditioning contractor, go to Louisville’s BBB site and search from there. You can search the BBB website by using a specific business name or by simply searching for “heating and air conditioning contractors”. You’ll enter your city and state and then be given a list of local businesses and reviews about those businesses.

Another trusted place to go is Angie’s List. Angie’s List has over one million members who check the website for recommendations and reviews and who post their own reviews. Angie’s List is particularly special because businesses can’t pay to be listed on the website, and the reviews come from genuine, real people—not anonymous users who are pushing their own agendas. One more benefit of using Angie’s List is that some contractors and businesses will offer you a discount if they know that you found them via Angie’s List.

A final resource you can use to find the best HVAC contractor in your area is This website does focus primarily on heating contractors; however, the majority of heating technicians are also certified to work on air conditioning units, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding someone qualified to do what you need done. All you have to do is select your location and then sift through the various reviews that are listed.

When you do get in touch with a contractor, don’t forget to ask him or her about the following:

• Licensing – The majority of states require HVAC technicians to be licensed or certified. Be sure to find out if your potential contractor is legally able to do the work that you need done.

• Estimates – It’s a good idea to get three different estimates from three different contractors just to see what’s middle of the road and what’s far too expensive. This can also be a good way to see which contractor knows what he or she is doing—and which contractor is too inexperienced for the job.

• References – Every professional heating and air conditioning contractor should have references that he or she is more than willing to share with you. If your potential technician doesn’t have references or doesn’t want to supply you with references, move on to the next contractor on your list.

There you have it—great information that will help you find the best heating and air conditioning contractor for the job.
