Finding the right HVAC company can feel daunting. In Gaithersburg and surrounding areas, you have several options to choose from, so it is important to do a little research to ensure you hire the best company to fit your needs.
So, what are the critical things to research, to look for, to ask when hiring a heating and air conditioning contractor?
Licensing & Certification
The first thing you will want to confirm is the contractors licensing and certification. The state of Maryland has a very high standard of HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration) licensing requirements.
Presidential Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. exceeds Maryland’s requirements and has an active Master License. This ensures that we provide the highest standard of quality to consult, install, repair, and maintain your home’s heating and air conditioning systems.
Another important qualification you will want to confirm your contractor has, is the North American Technician Excellence, or NATE certification. NATE certifications are earned after extensive training and testing. They are valid for 5 years and only renewed after an additional 60 hours of training and retesting. A NATE certification signifies that you have earned one of the highest standards of ability in heating and air conditioning.
NATE certification is not mandatory in Maryland. However, Presidential Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. only employs NATE-certified technicians. This certification indicates a technicians’ ongoing commitment to being the most knowledgeable and technically proficient experts in their field.
