The Importance of Working with an Accredited HVAC Company
There are many, many options out there in the world of HVAC. Home owners have a large pool of companies to service their furnaces, air conditioners, hot water tanks and electrical needs. Many of those options even find their way on your doorstep trying to solicit those services with 'too good to be true' prices.
Yes, it's true - there are a lot of HVAC companies out there. But... how many of them are reputable? How many of them can back up and guarantee their work? And, how many of them have years of expertise in the industry? That large pool of companies quickly becomes a small selection. It becomes even smaller when you want to work with a personable local business instead of a large national chain.
We know that your home's energy systems are an important part of your life, and we know the investment it takes to keep them performing at optimal levels. Because of that, we also know it is important to trust your investment to the best, most qualified HVAC company available to you.
So, what kind of company should you be looking for? And why is it so important to look for an HVAC company that is accredited - backed by organizations like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI).
An HVAC company that has BBB accreditation requires that company to maintain the highest standards of business. The BBB expects that company to establish and maintain dependability and earn good trust with their customers. They require that business to conduct themselves with honest advertising practices that comply with marketing laws and are sincere in their messaging - avoiding any misleading ads.
The BBB allows customers of that company to file reviews and complaints for the public to see. The BBB expects complaints to be dealt with immediately to resolve any grievances - ensuring changes to be made in the business practice so that complaint never happens again.
By working with a highly rated BBB accredited HVAC company, you can be sure you are receiving the most honest and quality customer service possible.
An HVAC company that is an active member of the HRAI means their customers are working with a creditable, trusted company that is recognized as a gold standard in the HVAC industry. It means the HVAC company is fully qualified to conduct their work to the highest standards and maintain positive relationships with utilities, government and industry stakeholders. HRAI accredited companies and a powerful knowledge base and are respected in the HVAC industry.
It takes a lot of effort for companies to comply to the standards to accrediting companies like the BBB and the HRAI. That's why few HVAC companies bother to do it.
