1. Watch Out for HVAC Contractors that Give You an Estimate Over The Phone

Remember, every home is unique and has many nuances that make each HVAC installation or maintenance a case by case basis. Watch out for HVAC contractors that give you a bid over the phone because there is no way they can know what exactly what your system consists of. There are many factors that go into a proper estimate such as ducting, insulation, and even windows. Make sure your contractor performs a Manual-J calculation for your air conditioning system. None of this can be done over the phone. If you get a phone estimate, take it with a grain of salt and make sure you get a proper estimate when the HVAC contractor comes over to check out your system.

  1. Make Sure Your HVAC Contractor Installs the Proper Unit

Many contractors opt to install the same unit (albeit a newer model year) as before. Assuming the average HVAC unit lasts 10-15 years, you should make sure the newer model of your old unit has similar specs, otherwise, you should find something that is actually compatible with the dimensions of your home. A seasoned HVAC contractor will recommend several options to best improve the quality of your home's HVAC system.

  1. Don't Take an HVAC Contractor's Years of Experience for Face Value

Many HVAC companies claim they have over 50 years of combined HVAC experience, or something like that! Sure, that may be true, but when it comes down to the job, you may only have one or two new contractors with little experience actually working on your HVAC system. HVAC contractors that have nothing else to show for other than their "years of experience" should raise a red flag. Make sure your contractor also has great customer reviews, and a lot of photos from recent projects.

Also, watch out for HVAC contractors that say they've been following the same process for years. HVAC is still technology that evolves, and with all evolving technologies comes evolving methods and processes. Make sure your contractor is on the leading edge of HVAC technology.

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had Nexgen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, Nexgen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend Nexgen.
