Take a Trip Before You Replace your Heating or Cooling System?

28 11 2012

Most people look at me funny when I suggest this, but it would be time well spent and provide you with a higher level of comfort about the company who is going to be working in your home.  So, you need to replace your heating or cooling system and you want to make sure the company who is going to do the work is professional.  You call some contractors to give you estimates for replacement and you decide to buy from the company who you were comfortable with and who gave you what you perceive as a fair deal.  Problem here is that heating and cooling contractors are smart enough to send out the smartest and nicest people they have to represent the company.  “Slick Willies” as I call them.  They are professional sellers not heating and cooling professionals.  They tend to tell you what you want to hear and not stick to the facts (see my earlier post of sticking to facts).  Now you have made your decision and the folks who actually show up to do the work just about make you sick.  Your uncomfortable with these people running around in your home.  So this is where the trip comes in.  Do a quick web search for heating and cooling supply companies in your area.  These are the supply companies that provide heating and cooling contractors with their parts and supplies.  When you find what looks like one of the larger supply companies, drive there and observe the caliber of folks who come in and out.  I guarantee it will be an eye-opening experience.  You could also ask to meet the folks who are coming out to do the work before hand or ask for bios with pictures before you make a decision.  Might be a little more fun though to take the trip.
