I am looking for a heating and air company that I can trust. I want someone that will be very detailed and honest in their assesment of my current system. Quality,efficiancy and longevity are my main concerns. I believe that you get what you pay for and dont mind paying a fair price for quality and workmanship. I know that I am a pain to work with. In god I trust, all others bring data. If anyone here is in the Cola area please let me know I would be happy to talk to someone in my area that is proud of their work.
My question is how do I find the right contractor to work with me. I want someone that can figure out what I need and be able to explain to me why. Is that asking too much? No offense intended at all,but out of the last 5 hvac techs that I have had service my units it didnt seem like they were interested in helping at all. Just add freon and go. I am currently interviewing companies to replace my downstairs unit and after the tech came tonight I think it would help if I had some pre questions for them so we dont waste each others time. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I will say to the credit of the tech that came out tonight that he did tell me that my pump and air handler were mismatched. I dont know if this is true(I have not gotten the #`s off of the air handler yet)but I will be getting them tommorrow. He said the Air handler is 2 ton and the pump is 1 1/2 ton? His quote was for a Rheem 2 ton 16 seer split matched system, but he couldnt really tell me why. I NEED the why!
I have a 2 story 2400 sq ft house on a 2' crawl, 900 down with 9' ceilings and 1500 up with 8'. It was built in 05 with 1 Heil hhp018akc2 down and 1 Heil hhp024akc2 up. We have never been comfortable downstairs in the summer. We live in central South Carolina(hot and humid)and moving is not an option at this point. ha ha
I would also like to know what everyone likes to install and why? What would you recommend? Not holding you to it! What in your professional opinion do you need to know and what would you recomend based off of the info provided so far.
Thanks for reading.
