I live in an area with an extremely warm and humid climate. The central cooling system runs for the majority of the year and carries a heavy workload. When I noticed that my air conditioner was starting to show the wear and tear of age, I began researching new models. I figured out that finding a trustworthy contractor to install the cooling system is equally as important as the integrity of equipment. The HVAC contractor is responsible for properly sizing the unit to meet the demands of the home. He needs to be sure the system can handle the square footage, weather and humidity levels, without running non stop. He also must make sure the new cooling system matches the existing ductwork, and inspect the condition of the ductwork. Holes, leaks in the seams or a buildup of contaminants within the duct system will undermine the performance of the air conditioner. It can be difficult, however, to be certain of the ethics of the HVAC contractor. I made sure to read customer reviews, and I chose an HVAC professional who maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. This particular contractor is fully licensed, insured, NATE-certified and has earned factory authorization. He also stands behind each job with 100% satisfaction guarantee. He provided a free consultation and estimate, and offered a very personalized recommendation for a modern cooling system. The installation project was scheduled without delay and completed quickly and within budget. I was totally pleased with results and the overall performance of the air conditioner.
