If you’re looking to hire an HVAC service in Omaha, how do you find the best one? Flip open the phonebook (if you’ve still got one of those), scroll through Yelp, or search “HVAC service near me” and you’ll find a hundred different HVAC companies in under five seconds! The options can be truly overwhelming.

To help you pick the best local HVAC service that will get the job done right, for the right price, we’ve put together a handy guide to the main questions you should ask every potential service— and how they should answer them.

So pick up the phone, and let’s begin:

  • Is this company licensed, bonded, and insured?

This should be your #1 question. If you work with an HVAC company that isn’t licensed, bonded, and insured, you open yourself up to serious liability if they get injured in your home or perform shoddy work. If they can’t answer this question, politely hang up and move on down your list!

  • How long have you been in business?

Hopefully, it’s been at least 5-10 years. That tells you they’re doing enough good business here in Omaha to keep their local customers happy.

  • Do you offer upfront pricing, warranties, or service guarantees?

At Burton here in Omaha, we pride ourselves on offering upfront pricing. That means our customers know exactly what they’re going to pay before we start working. Not all HVAC service companies do, and that can cost you big time. Ask about parts and labor warranties, too. The last thing you want is another expensive repair next year if your equipment malfunctions.

  • How soon can you come out? And how quickly do you typically finish the necessary HVAC repairs?

If the HVAC company can’t come repair your A/C for a week and the summer heat has turned your home into a sauna, you probably need to keep looking. Be sure to also ask if the company can make most HVAC repairs in a single visit. At Burton, our HVAC repair techs keep a fully stocked truck so your system can be back up and running faster.
