With so many HVAC contractors in Lexington, how do you choose between the various companies? When searching for an HVAC contractor, it’s a good idea to look for those with the following qualities.


When looking for an HVAC contractor, a great place to start is to ask your family and friends if there is a company they would recommend. Based on the positive experiences of your trusted relatives and friends, you’re likely to receive the same level of service and quality from the company as well.


Any HVAC contractor you are considering hiring needs to be properly licensed and insured, for your protection. Ask to see licensing and insurance information before you hire a contractor. Check the contractor’s Better Business Bureau rating to learn if any disputes have been filed against the contractor, and see how they were resolved. Also, look for an HVAC contractor with a team of NATE-certified technicians; NATE is an industry organization dedicated to continuing education and training or HVAC professionals.


Look for a contractor who will come to your home to assess your needs, not give you a quote over the phone without ever coming out. In order to accurately assess your needs, load calculations must be performed, the home must be evaluated, and your comfort concerns need to be considered. You want a contractor who does a thorough job assessing your needs, as this will best ensure the work they go on to complete will be appropriate for your home.

You want to hire a contractor who will provide a written quote, not just a price over the phone. The written quote should detail exactly what is included in the price. This transparency will help you accurately compare quotes between contractors and know just what you are purchasing. Don’t be afraid to ask contractors questions about any item on the quote; a good HVAC contractor will want you to be comfortable and well-informed about the equipment and services you are purchasing.
