Winter will be here before you know it and that means it's time to assess your heating needs. Perhaps you are in need of a furnace tune-up or a winterizing service. Or you discovered last winter that your furnace wasn't doing enough and you want to be more prepared this year. Once the weather turns colder, there are many reasons for needing a heating and air conditioning contractor in Lawrenceville and the Atlanta area. Ace & A Heating & Air Conditioning of Gwinnett Inc. explains some of the qualities to look for in an HVAC company.
First things first: you need to find a reputable company who will visit your home and provide an estimate. Friends and neighbors can be excellent resources for finding a reputable company. Talk to them and find out if they've used a company that they really liked, or if they can tell you who to avoid. Nevertheless, a solid company will talk to you about your needs, and then provide you with a written estimate. When looking over the estimates, look to see if they include both the parts needed for the job, and the cost of labor.
As you talk with the contractors, you should be able to get a gauge for their competency. They should be up to speed with the most advanced heating options available to homeowners. A good contractor will also be able to determine a heat-load calculation for your home, and using that calculation, they should estimate your future energy bills.
It's never a bad idea to talk to several companies; this gives you multiple estimates to compare. However, it's important to remember that the lowest estimates aren't always your best option. Cheaper could mean lower quality parts and poor workmanship. If you've taken into account the other factors mentioned here, then you'll be well on your way to finding the best HVAC company in your area.
