What to look for when choosing a heating & air conditioning contractor
People often fret over the brand of furnace to buy, but the contractor you choose is every bit as important. Not only is the quality of the workmanship and installation crucial to the furnace’s lifespan, the company you choose will be relied on for future servicing and warranty coverage.
Always choose an established company that has:
- Good, independently-verified feedback
- A solid track record and no outstanding disputes
- Verified insurance, licenses, and certifications
- Experienced staff, with manufacturer training
- Registered to offer rebates
Checking all of these things is difficult and time-consuming.
That’s why we’ve already done it for you!

Purchasing a High-Efficiency Central A/C
When you invest in a new high-efficiency central air conditioner for your Vancouver home, you’ll want to pay close attention to the SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. Central air conditioners available in Vancouver have ratings between 13-20+, a higher rating signals higher performance efficiency.
The size of your home should dictate what size central A/C system you buy, and a qualified HVAC professional will make an appropriate recommendation. A system that is too small will frequently cycle on and off and be very inefficient at cooling your space. An overly large unit, on the other hand, will not be able to extract humidity sufficiently.
Government Rebates Available
