Tankless Water Heaters, Conventional Water Heaters and Indirect Water Heaters.
Hiring a heating and cooling company should be first checked with the Better Business Bureau to see if the company has a good rating. If there are many complaints or they have a low grade average then you should look into the complaints and see what the problem is noting there is no fraud.
The next important thing is to check to see if the company is bonded. This means that the company has insurance and if something was to happen that was their fault. For example, a furnace has a gas leak and somebody gets sick; the company has insurance to cover their damages. You must consider the units that are being purchased and that they are not only of high quality but also have a acceptable life insurance on their units. There are many companies out there that claim to be doing heating and cooling, but the reason there is so many is due to lack of good workmanship. Since that is the case, the industry always has room for another outfit to improve. It can be in quality or simple working in a clean manner.
Many times the duct work must be replaced. To do this, we must remove sheet rock and replace the duct work. This can be messy and if not creful, there will be sheetrock being tracked through your whole house from the employees walking all over your belongings. The belongings will have a thin cover of white sheet rock dust.
Another good way to check your heating and cooling contractor is by calling the local city hall and finding out if the company is registered and licensed or are they just a fly by night outfit. City Hall will also advise you if they are bonded and if they are bonded for what the city requires. Every city has different codes.
One of the last things is to interview the contractor. Talk,and share with him. Look at what ideas he has on your new unit and if you and him don't start a business relationship, then this is probably the wrong fit. Overall, make sure you are comfortable with him. Don't stop at the first one; get several estimates. The bottom line is to see who offers you more for your money.
