Hiring a Plumber or HVAC Specialist: Important Things to Consider

Hiring a plumber for the first time isn’t an easy task. It becomes especially more difficult if you’ve just moved into a new home and are looking for trustworthy ones in the area. Here’s what to consider before you hire one.

Extensive Services

Finding an expert who can take care of your plumbing, heating, and air conditioning needs can be incredibly convenient. Since both systems go hand-in-hand, a specialist who can address both plumbing and HVAC issues in a single appointment is ideal and can save a lot of time and resources. There will be no need to save multiple numbers on your contacts list or deal with several companies who might end up stepping on each other’s toes.

Proper Licenses

If you can only have one criterion when choosing a specialist, ensure that they are properly licensed. The State of California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) issues licenses for plumbers and HVAC contractors as an operational requirement.

In addition to ensuring the legitimacy of a potential hire, it also helps ensure that all installation and repair work performed by the same company will comply with existing building codes. Our license number can be found at the bottom of every page of our website, which you can verify at CSLB’s.

References

The best way that you can check the quality of a specialist’s work is through their past clients. Legitimate companies should have no problems providing at least three references. Take the time to call each one and ask any questions you might have about a particular specialist’s service. If one or more of these references happen to be in the area, or if the reference happens to be someone you know, take it as an opportunity to inspect the repair or installation work firsthand. Carefully screening your potential contractors can help prevent future problems, and can result in a fruitful, long-term relationship.
