Discuss With an HVAC Contractor

When you’re hiring an HVAC contractor to complete work in your Yorktown, Virginia, home, it’s important to make sure they know how to perform the job properly. Before you commit to any work, make sure to ask your HVAC contractor a few important questions.

Are You Certified, Licensed and Insured?

Every HVAC service technician should hold proper certification to work on your heating and cooling system. One of the top certifications is the North American Technician Excellence (NATE). In order to hold this certification, a service technician must pass an exam to verify training and experience.

The company for which your service technician works should also hold insurance on every member of the team. This  will protect your equipment and property during a repair or installation job. Contractors must hold local licenses to work in the Yorktown municipality.

How Do You Calculate the Load?

An accurate load calculation is critical for efficiency and proper sizing for a new HVAC system. Without a correct load calculation, you could end up with an HVAC system that is too large or small for your home. Both of these issues can cause higher bills and poor efficiency.

What HVAC Maintenance Do I Need?

Every HVAC system requires regular maintenance; although, some options don’t need as much care as others

For example, a ductless system won’t need routine duct cleaning. Talk to your contractor to get an idea of what’s needed to keep your HVAC system operating efficiently. This can help you plan ahead and keep up on the necessary maintenance to prevent problems in the future.
