If you live in Myrtle Beach, a heat pump is a necessity and making the investment in a heat pump is an important decision for any homeowner. Heat pumps can save you money in the long run, however, the initial investment is a big out of pocket expense. For that reason, it is absolutely critical that you choose a qualified and reputable HVAC contractor to handle the installation and setup. Hiring a contractor who’s not up to the installation project and who does sloppy work could set you up for years of unnecessary headache and out-of-pocket expenses. But how do you find the right person for the job?
Here is what you need to know about choosing a local HVAC contractor to handle the installation project for a new heat pump.
Like most types of contractors and service workers you hire for jobs in your home, word of mouth is the best way to find person you can trust. Try calling your friends and neighbors and ask about their experiences. Did they work with a contractor who blew them away with their professionalism and hard work? Did they work with someone who ruined the job and left them high and dry? You can’t simply look for the contracting company whose name you have heard the most- that doesn’t mean anything. Do your homework and look for real life references from some real life clients. If you can’t find anyone who has worked with a contractor, ask the contractor to provide some recommendations themselves. Any contractor worth their salt can and will provide these.
Another thing to look for in a heat pump installer is what they are going to do for you. You don’t want someone who is just going to turn up and “plug it in” as it were. What you want is a contractor who is there to do a thorough investigation of your home and work with you every step of the process. Your HVAVC contractor should help you pick out the right sizing and model heat pump for you home and walk you through the pros and cons of various types of models. They should also discuss installation with you and give you an idea of how a heat pump would differ from central heating and air- and whether the heat pump is a good option for your property. Your contactor should be able to help you figure out how long it will take for your energy cost savings to offset in the cost of your new heat pump.
Your contractor should also be able to give you a quote for the job that they are willing to guarantee, or at least ensure within a certain framework, i.e ., the cost of the job will not exceed the quote by 10%. Likewise, they should be able to explain exactly how long the installation process will take.
