Ask the Right Questions Before You Hire

It’s important to get all the facts before any work begins so you can make informed decisions and avoid costly mistakes. Ask every potential contractor for the following:

  • A list of references and credentials to help you analyze the quality of their installation and service work.
  • A written, itemized and dated estimate with all details you have discussed. Never accept estimates by phone. When comparing estimates, consider the entire cost of the job, including energy efficient savings over time and warranties. A cheaper, less energy-efficient product could raise your energy bills.
  • A written contract including specified project costs, model numbers, job schedule and any warranty information.

Make sure the contractor you hire has demonstrated commitment to quality. Be friendly, yet persistent, when you discuss your options. Do not sign any contract to begin work until you feel confident you’ve hired the best person or company.

Heating and cooling equipment, insulation and windows must be properly sized and installed to provide the energy-efficiency and performance they were designed to deliver. Keep in mind the adage, “measure twice, cut once.”
