Do you need permits?The simple answer to this is yes and no. Always get permits if you can. We always recommend getting permits. It ensures that your home isn’t going to burn down when you turn on your heater and cause a massive electrical short when you turn on your A/C. The building inspector is also going to make sure that your HVAC contractor isn’t cutting corners. We understand that some homes have un-permitted additions or alterations and getting city inspectors out to the home is the last thing the owners would want. We will always try to keep our customers happy, but we still strongly recommend getting permits and inspections. Either way there is a risk that if the building department finds out that you’ve done any major home improvement project without a permit, they can make you remove it and possibly fine you and the contractor. So, if you can get permits and don’t have to worry about past projects, get them, it will give you the peace of mind it was done right the first time.
What type of insurance should the contractor have?Workers Compensation insurance is number one! In the HVAC industry there are thousands of companies working without it. They will have “under the table” employees working for them. If you hire a contractor to do work in your home and their employee gets hurt in your home, you can be held responsible for damages. They can also file a claim against your home insurance. Ask for a copy of insurance before they start or you can check the with the state contractor licensed board. General Liability insurance, you want to be covered if something happens to your home during or after the installation. Make sure the contractor has at least 1-million-dollar general liability insurance policy. Bonded: ask to see their bond, this is the easiest way for you to recoup any losses if something goes wrong, but it usually only covers up to $10,000 worth of damage.
What size of unit do you need?There are a lot of options on what size you need for the home. The most common way to determine the right size of an air conditioning and heating system in Florida is by square feet (400sq. ft. per ton), but that is not always the most accurate. Windows, how the sun hits the building, hot and cold spots in the house, and most importantly the buildings insulation can all affect the size required. All these things add and subtract heat from your home and should be used to find the right sized HVAC system needed.
What features do you want?The old school way of putting A/C or heat in your home was just a simple on/off switch for hot and cold. Modern technology allows us to provide even air temperature throughout your home with the right humidity using the least amount of energy. Plus keeping it quiet when you sleep or watch TV. Ask your contractor how the unit works and what options you have like, single stage, two stage, variable speed and ECM motors. An important thing to remember is that it’s going to last 15 to 20 years, paying a little more now will save you more than just money.
