HVAC Contractor Checklist

  1. Is the company a state licensed contractor? If so, then what is their certification number?
  2. You should ask to see a current liability insurance certificate. This should show the company name, as well as coverage offered. $1,000,000 is the Ohio state minimum coverage.
  3. Do they have a landline phone for business? All white and yellow page listed companies will, since this indicates an actual place of business, and not just guys working out of a van or truck!
  4. Any and all reputable contractors will logo their vehicles and themselves, as well as providing their employees with uniforms.
  5. A homeowner should never make a check payable to the individual’s name. This is a sign that the company could be bypassing the tax system. Therefore, they are reaping more income than those of us business who follow the rules.
  6. Ask whether or not the company can perform a CFM test on your system. This test will accurately show what the system is actually doing in air flow capacity. Very few technicians have a clue how to perform this test properly.
  7. Which system or systems do they have in their home, and why?
  8. Regarding heat pumps, what does COP mean? Also, what does HSPF mean?
