How to Hire the Right Heating & Cooling Company

We’ve all done it at one point or another – hired the first available person to fix the air conditioning, furnace or something else at your home. While it’s tempting just to hire someone and get it over with, it can end up costing you more if you’re not careful about who you hire. The right heating and cooling company won’t just offer affordable rates, but they’ll also provide personal service in a fast and efficient manner. At B & W, that’s what we’re known for – quality service and superior customer care.

Here are four things to consider when hiring an HVAC contractor for your home:


Check all the reviews that you can find. BBB, Yelp, Facebook, Google, etc. and carefully weigh the words you read with the services you need.


Another tip is to find a contractor that’s close to your home for the fastest service. B & W is located just minutes from surrounding towns and cities, making us a great choice no matter where you are in the Metro-East area.


Any reputable company will make it a point to provide the best possible service to all customers. If you’re reading reviews about service techs that were unfriendly or uninterested in your problems, that’s probably a red flag. Also, a good company won’t pressure you into repairs or replacements that you don’t need with sales tactics. Remember – the service should be all about you.


While low prices shouldn’t be the only thing you consider, it is important to get multiple quotes to ensure you’re being given a fair price for your service. B & W takes pride in offering the same quality repairs at the affordable rates that customers expect. Check out our comparison chart below for details:
