5 Characteristics to Look for Before Hiring an HVAC Technician

If you are a homeowner, you will inevitably need to hire an HVAC technician at some point in time. They are an essential part of ensuring home comfort levels are at their peak. Make sure you choose wisely so that all maintenances and repairs are done correctly. Read on to learn five characteristics to look for before hiring an HVAC technician!


The first qualification to take into account is credentials. Is your HVAC technician certified? Ask to see their credentials before any work starts. Forgetting this easy, but often missed step can be costly! All qualified HVAC technicians should obtain a copy of their license, certification, and insurance before conducting a job. At Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, you don’t have to worry! Our HVAC technicians are NATE certified, O6A Electrical Licensed, or have a Trainee Card, EPA/CFC licensed, trusted, trained, supervised, background checked, drug tested, licensed, bonded, and insured. Rest assured, as they are trained to handle HVAC repairs in a safe and efficient manner.


Many HVAC repairs require specialized tools and parts that most homeowners do not already have on hand. Ask about the part ordering process when hiring an HVAC technician for a time-sensitive project. At Bob’s, all of our trucks conveniently have a large stock of parts available to ensure your equipment is repaired quickly. In the event that a part does need to be ordered, Bob’s Heating has a dedicated team to order your part and get you rescheduled right away. If your part is under warranty, Bob’s Heating will take care of the warranty processing for you to ensure your repair is completely hassle-free.
