For properties in the great Vancouver area, the investments can be among the highest in the country. Making sure the HVAC system is up to date and working properly, can be a timely and costly investment if not done correctly. Whether you currently own a property or are interested in purchasing, here are a few important questions to ask a potential contractor before starting the job.
Are They Licensed and Insured?
The first thing you should check is if they are fully licensed. You not only want to be sure that the person servicing or installing your HVAC system knows what they are doing, but also that the company is insured. All of our gas technicians are A and B class licensed, and Pro Ace Heating and Air Conditioning Service Ltd. is bonded, insured, and certified.
How Many Years In Business?
Finding a contractor with many years of experience is really important. You want to be sure that the company you hire, has experience in the past. Trusting a large repair or new install to somebody with little or no experience can affect not only the quality of the job but also whether or not they will be around to cover you with warranty over the years.
What Are Their Qualifications and Associations?
When doing your homework on HVAC contractors, you should always ask about their qualifications and what they specifically are specialised in. Having a contractor who deals in all major home appliances, can save you money and trouble. We recommend that you find a contractor who is also a member of Fortis BC Trade Ally Network. Like us at Pro Ace Fortis BC only refers customers to fully licensed and reputable contractors in the greater Vancouver area.
