Licensed and Insured by the State 

All HVAC professionals are required to be licensed by the state that they are in. However, there are some who are working without a license. You should check to see if the HVAC professional is licensed. The company should provide you with their license number.

A good HVAC company is also insured. If the company does not have insurance, then this means that you can be held responsible if something is broken. You may also be held responsible if the HVAC technician gets hurt on the job.

Good Reputation

A company’s reputation says a lot about them. You can read online reviews to find out about the company’s reputation. It is normal to see one or two negative reviews because a company won’t be able to please everyone. However, the majority of the reviews should be positive.

You should also see if the company has had any complaints filed against them. Additionally, you can ask the company to provide references.
