Whether you are looking for the best way to improve the thermal control and air quality of your home, business, or multi-story building, hiring a reliable HVAC installer or contractor is a critical first step.
Of course, the difficult part is finding a contractor you can trust who can accurately assess your current system, create a tailored solution to suit your needs, and implement the new HVAC system in the most efficient way.
What is HVAC?
HVAC stands for "heating, ventilation and air conditioning," which are the three central functions of indoor air control comfort. An experienced HVAC contractor understand how all three of these functions are interrelated, as well as other important, more technical factors relating to the thermal control of an indoor space, such as:
- Overall energy efficiency
- Reducing air infiltration
- Room air distribution
- Federal/state codes and regulations
Most HVAC consultations begin with a heating and cooling load calculation. This helps the contractor determine the proper fresh air requirements and pressurization of an indoor space. For smaller residential buildings, an HVAC contractor will evaluate the air quality needs of a space and match it with the ideal system.
Large commercial buildings like skyscrapers, factories and office spaces require more in-depth analysis and oftentimes custom-designed HVAC systems.
Finding a Licensed HVAC Contractor
Once you start searching for an HVAC contractor, it is important to check their certifications, qualifications and experience. Many states require a license for the installation and servicing of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
The Georgia Technicians License requirements demand that would-be contractors have at least 3 years of applicable work experience or training related to the appropriate license, in addition to passing an exam to test an applicant's knowledge of common HVAC principles.
Choosing an HVAC Installer
Before hiring an HVAC contractor, you will also need to ensure that they have suitable training, references, and that they comply with the proper HVAC procedures. You can get the answers to these questions by simply asking the contractor during the consultation.
You also want to choose an HVAC contractor who is willing to provide a preliminary inspection of your residential or commercial space at no charge. Following this inspection, a contractor should be able to give you a cost estimate or schedule an appointment for a repair.
