    Reputable Company in DFW?

    I know pricing isn't allowed, but can anyone in the DFW area recommend a few great companies who do quality work? I'm replacing at least on of my units (the coil on my upper upstairs unit is leaking).

    I've been able to get several quotes, but how do I know if a particular company is reputable etc. If anyone's had any positive experiences, or has a company or contractor they could recommend, i'd greatly appreciate it.

    i would ask if their technicians are NATE or RSES certified!

    that would be a good start!

    You may put your thread in job discussion or atleast the residential a/c section?

    there are certainly many skilled techs on this site!

    welcome

    Don't care if the techs a NATE certified or not.

    A good installer is a good installer.

    I agree on the NATE..but I am still certified. Sometimes this makes the difference on getting in the door.

    But did you suddenly become a better installer just because you passed the NATE test.

    No, just became a more marketable installer for the company I worked with at the time. Maintain the status just for the bullet on the proposal. I would bet that 90% of the time it means absolutely nothing.

    Thats the thing. Its more of a marketing thing. then an actual, improve the trade thing.

    They may not have wanted it to be like that, but thats what it is.

    The only really good marketing that has taken place is NATE to the HVAC industry. Average Joe American doesn't know what NATE is....so why has NATE still around?? (Thread officially Hijacked)
