Running a business is rarely a solo affair. Even if you don’t have any employees, you will still need to rely on others to keep your operation running smoothly—for example, you will need to work with advertisers to promote your product or service. This principle also applies to things like maintaining your facilities. Our team at L&B Mechanical has extensive experience in the commercial HVAC industry, and we can provide the maintenance, installation, and repair services you need to keep your building’s heating and cooling systems in excellent condition. We know what it takes to be good at this work, and we know what warning signs indicate that someone is not a good fit for it.
In this article, we’ll go over a few red flags to watch out for when choosing a commercial HVAC company for your business.
- Lack of Experience – When researching HVAC companies, you should always look into the training and experience of the staff members. Our technicians all have extensive experience in this field, and we are committed to ongoing training to keep our skills sharp. If a company can’t or won’t provide information on the level of experience of its staff members, then you should probably continue your search elsewhere.
- Lack of Qualifications – We also encourage you to ask about each HVAC company’s qualifications before you decide whom to hire. At a minimum, the company staff should be licensed in their field, and additional certifications are even better. If the staff are reluctant to show you this documentation, you should move on.
- Poor Reputation – Lastly, while a single negative review of an HVAC company is usually nothing to worry about, you should avoid any company whose reviews skew towards the negative. Client satisfaction is often the best indicator of a company’s quality, so if the team has a record of dissatisfied clients, you should avoid that company.
