Your heating and cooling system is one of the most complex systems in your home. So it is critical that you hire an HVAC company with well-trained professionals who know how to properly deal with whatever issues are in front of them. In addition to knowing the causes and solutions to heating and air conditioning issues, HVAC professionals must also be trained to deal with inherent safety issues like natural gas, oil, electricity and toxic refrigerants.

It is for these very reasons that you need to do more than just pick the first company you come across. Just a few decades ago, HVAC professionals were known mainly as furnace repair professionals as this is what the majority of them did. But today, many people have central air in their home and ductwork has become more than just an afterthought.

Total Care Heating & Air, your AC service in Corona, offers tips for hiring an outstanding HVAC company.


A professional heating and air conditioning company will have a list of customers you can contact in order to verify that the company performs at a high level and to customer satisfaction.


Due to the high cost of heating and air conditioning replacement and repair, you should probably get at least three estimates before making a decision. If one estimate seems way too low, then it probably is a good idea to skip it. Keep in mind that costs vary depending on some very important considerations. So it is best if you ask about the estimate and how they came to that conclusion.

Find Special Offers

A good HVAC company isn’t afraid to let you know about good deals. Just like any retail store or other types of services, HVAC companies will have some good deals that you will want to take advantage of.

Get It in Ink

When you do get an estimate, make sure it is written down in detail. This means it should be itemized and broken down so you can better understand what will be done and how much each part will cost.

Do Your Homework

There are many ways you can utilize the internet when shopping for an HVAC company. For example, you can check out reviews to see what others are saying about the company. You can also check to see if there are any complaints that went to the Better Business Bureau.

Spend some time on their website to find out more information about the company. If they don’t have a website, call them up and ask a lot of questions.

Ask Questions

Here are a few questions you should be asking:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • What is your address?
  • Do you have an office staff?
  • Are you licensed?
  • Will you guarantee my satisfaction?
  • Are your technicians employees or sub-contractors?
  • Will you clean up at the end?
  • Will you remove all old debris from my home?
