Tips for Choosing an Electrical or HVAC Contractor

  • Check to see how long they have been in business. Usually the longer a company has been around the better chance that they have an excellent track record for customer satisfaction.

  • Inquire about the contractors insurance.
  • Ask if they can provide you with a list of references.
  • If so, don’t just look at the list, follow up by calling and asking them if they were satisfied with the service that they received.
