Once you’ve decided on the HVAC unit that’s right for you from BuyAirDirect, the next step is finding a licensed HVAC professional to handle the installation process. Here are some things to keep in mind when selecting a provider to tackle this job.

Get a written estimate.

After you’ve bought your unit online, start calling local HVAC service companies for estimates on installation. Let them know your unit will be delivered to your home and the only service you need is installation. HVAC unit installation prices vary but are usually around $750 to $1,000, including all permit costs.

Some installers may want to come out and see your property before the installation or before providing you with a written estimate. The quotes should be free and always make sure to get the estimate in writing and not over the phone. If there are any questions about the installation of the unit, your installer can direct all questions to BuyAirDirect’s customer service line.

They MUST be licensed.

Just because someone has a business card and a truck, does not mean they are a licensed HVAC contractor. Most licensed contractors have their license number readily available on all of their sales materials. If they don’t have a license, this means they don’t have insurance, which can protect you if something goes wrong during the installation process. Make sure to confirm that they are licensed, bonded and insured.

All experience is not created equal.

In most cases, experienced contractors are a plus, but with all of the new models of HVAC units now on the market, it’s important your installer is educated and up-to-date on how the new models operate and function and how to install them properly. Be sure to ask what experience they have installing the unit that you selected from BuyAirDirect. It’s also a good idea to check customer reviews on Google, Facebook and other social-media sites to see what their customers have to say about their service.
