Your home in Allentown, PA probably isn’t going to stay comfortable if the HVAC isn’t working optimally at all times. In extreme weather, it might not even remain safe to use. An HVAC contractor can service your system, but there are a few questions you should ask them to make sure your local expert is the right fit.

1. Can I See Your Credentials?

Licensing requirements vary by state, but your contractor should have some proof that they’re a legitimate contractor for HVAC work in your market. You should also ask about their liability insurance to protect yourself. Verify that the insurance provider operates in your state.

2. Do You Have a Maintenance Package?

Regular service calls keep your HVAC in great shape. It’s ideal to schedule one at least twice a year (once before summer and once before winter), but a maintenance plan might offer savings or preferred services. Keeping up with your maintenance might be a warranty requirement.

3. What Does the Quote Include?

You need a quote to know what price to expect for your project. Don’t deal with a contractor who doesn’t give you one. However, also make sure they break it down or itemize it so you know what’s included but what isn’t.

4. When Can You Get Started?

If your system isn’t working properly, you’re wasting energy and forfeiting comfort. If your system stops working, you want it operational as quickly as possible. Getting a great quote from a contractor is nice to save money, but you also need someone who can show up sooner rather than later.

Asking questions such as these helps you find the best contractors in your local market. Your home and budget will both benefit. Contact us at Sullivan Oil & Propane for heating and air conditioning services in your home.
