Heating and Air Companies Near You

When it comes to HVAC services, you might be surprised at the amount of choices available to the home and company owner.

No matter where you live in north Georgia, there are literally dozens of heating and air companies vying for your business.

With that in mind, understand that it is not always easy to make a decision on which heating and air contractor you should choose to either install your HVAC system, repair your air conditioner/furnace, or maintain service on your heating and air (in order to get the most out of your HVAC and provide it with the longest life possible).

So, if you find yourself in need of professional heating and air help and looking for the right company near you to provide it, here is a checklist of sorts to help you ensure you choose the right company.

    • Canvas people you trust – Whether it is your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, teammates, take a few minutes and ask them about which HVAC companies they have used or are using and what their experiences have been like. Nowhere else will you get a more honest answer and one designed only to help you. And when you talk to them, ask about prices, whether the company was responsive to their needs, practiced quality customer service, what their technicians were like – little things such as did they leave a clean work space around the furnace or around the outside condenser when they left or did they take the time to explain things to the customer in an easy to understand method, can make a big difference.

    • Take a good look at any prospective company’s Google ratings – Google does a tremendous job of ensuring that the customer reviews and ratings placed on their site are legitimate and not puffery produced by the company itself or a fake customer. You cannot always rely on other popular apps to be as trustworthy.

    • Run a fine-tooth comb over the HVAC contractor – Once you have begun the process and determined a handful of heating and air companies that appear worthy of your business, the next step of work begins. We suggest you compare and contrast at least two companies, if not three or four in order to get a full picture of all the options available to you. Once you have done so, you need to take a look at the company’s website and then contact the company and begin asking questions. In general, the website should give you a good idea of the company’s approach to business and describe what sets them apart, including how long they have been in business (if you have an older system that requires maintenance, it does you little good to only have experience with brand-new systems) and what cities/regions they serve. That being said, the best way to get a true understanding of any prospective heating and air company is by calling them and asking a number of questions:

    • Are your technicians NATE certified? And are they consistently trained on new and emerging technology in the HVAC field? – Heating and air conditioning technology is constantly evolving and improving in efficiency, and you want to ensure that any technician you employ has a broad and versatile understanding of all HVAC solutions – that extends to facets such as ductwork and thermostat technology.
        • For that matter, what other standards do you hold your employees too? Conditioned Air Systems not only ensures that its technicians, managers and assistants understand the HVAC business, we also hold them to a high professional standard by requiring weekly safety briefings. We also conduct background checks during our hiring process and maintain random drug tests.

        • Do you stand behind your technicians’ work with any sort of warranty? Any company worth its salt that installs air conditioners, heaters or anything to do with HVAC, should stand behind its work via guarantees on both hardware and work performed. That is why Conditioned Air Systems offers a full, minimal one-year warranty on everything that we do. HVAC systems are complicated, and you should have the peace of mind of knowing that, if something unexpected does happen in the early life of your air conditioner or heater, you will not be left out in the cold (or heat, as is more likely the case in north Georgia), having to pay for repairs.

        • What types of equipment does the contractor install? When you talk to any HVAC company you should be able to recognize the names of some of the top brands in the heating and cooling industry. Manufacturers such as Trane, Daikin, York and Carrier are amongst the most reliable, advanced and yet fairly priced on the market today. That is why Conditioned Air Systems installs and stands behind these brands. And while they do offer cutting-edge technology, they ensure that the companies that install them are always in the know with seminars and training.

        • Do they offer 24-hour and emergency service? We all know that problems – no matter what they concern – do not happen on a 9-to-5 schedule. And that is certainly true of heating and air. And during the extremes of a north Georgia summer, the last thing you want is to have your air conditioner go out on a Friday evening and be told that no service technician is available to help you until the following Monday. That is why Conditioned Air offers 24-hour service to all of its customers – weekends and holidays included.

        • Will they come out and give me a free estimate? Again, there is a lot of competition in the heating and cooling field, but you should never trust an HVAC contractor that offers to give you an estimate over the phone or provide a legitimate evaluation of your home or business HVAC needs without seeing everything involved firsthand.

        • What precautions are you taking during this time of pandemic? You want an HVAC contractor that puts your needs first, and that should extend to EVERY facet of heating and service. In these unique times that also extends to your health. We want to make you feel comfortable no matter the situation, so we follow all CDC guidelines in order to protect our customers and make them feel as comfortable and safe as possible.

While you have the company on the phone, you will get a feel for how they treat their customers and what kind of emphasis they put on service. That should extend to how the technicians and/or site managers behave when they do come out to look at your home or business and determine the best service for your needs.

While much has changed in the heating and air conditioner business over the past four decades, there are still plenty of commonalities that are as true today as they were when Conditioned Air Systems opened its doors in 1983. Adhering to those beliefs – such as putting the customer first and utilizing only top-quality equipment – is why we have grown so much and are still here ready to serve your needs.
