As fall colors brighten the landscape, businesses begin to transfer from cooling to heat. This is the perfect time to service your commercial HVAC system to get it ready for peak season usage, reducing the risks of equipment failure when you need it the most. Despite the complexity of many commercial HVAC mechanical services, locating the right one for your system is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Know Your System
While you don’t need to have every detail of your HVAC system memorized, it is a good idea to have the basics on hand before you begin your search. Knowing what make and model you have, as well as past service history, will allow you to narrow your options down to those who have verifiable experience servicing your type of system. This is particularly important for businesses with older systems or those looking to install the newest innovations in commercial HVAC.
2. Ask for and Verify Credentials and References
Before signing a maintenance or service contract, you want to make sure the company you are working with not only has experience working with your HVAC system, but also have the right credentials. Depending on your location these credentials may include:
- Proof of insurance and bonded.
- Certifications for brands, services, and other equipment repair needs.
- List of references that vouch for the company in question.
Don’t just take their word for it either, verify by contacting their references and ask fellow business owners who they recommend.
3. Request Estimates and Review Contracts
Reputable commercial HVAC mechanical services will come to your place of business, inspect your system, and provide an estimate based on your needs and wishes. Be cautious of low ball quotes handed out over the phone, as these can indicate unqualified technicians, and low quality parts or labor. Review any contract for hidden service fees before you sign, and ask for clarification on any section you don’t fully understand.
