Tips for Looking for a Contractor to Work in Your Home

Kilowatt-employee-at-workYou are hunting for a heating, air conditioning, and electrical contractor for work in your house. You already know that simply pulling a name off of a quick Internet search isn’t the best way to go about making the choice. You want a contractor you can trust not only to get the job done right, but whom you’ll feel comfortable allowing into your house.

We’ve listed below what you should look for to find a trustworthy contractor of the right caliber. Read over this list—and we think you’ll agree that Kilowatt Heating, Air Conditioning and Electrical is the right company to contact!

Certification, Licensing, Bonding, and Insurance

This is what you should look for first before moving on to any other criteria for a contractor. It is vital that you protect yourself and your home by going with a true professional. And a true professional contractor will be certified, licensed with the state, bonded, and insured. This not only shows you that a particular contractor is recognized by the relevant trade organizations, but that you will be protected in case a worker sustains an injury on the job.

For example, we have the following certifications: EPA, the Gas Company, Southern California Edison, Mainstream Engineering, Institute of Heating and Air Conditioning Industries, and Electrical Motor Control Specialization. We are also an authorized dealer for American Standard, Ruud, Rheem, Samsung, and other companies. Plus, we’re 100% insured for both Liability and Workers Compensation, and our employees have NATE certification. Our license no. is 593847

Satisfaction Guarantees

You want a contractor who cares that the job is done right, every time; a contractor who places customer satisfaction as the top priority. Look for a 100% satisfaction guarantee from any contractor you are thinking of hiring.

Background Checked and Drug Tested Employees

You don’t want workers in your house that you can’t trust. When you work with us, you have the assurance that everyone on our team has undergone complete background checks and drug testing to earn them the Technician Seal of Safety. Our employees are “Safety Sealed”!

Longevity

It’s possible for a contractor with only a few years of history to provide high-quality service. But it is much safer to go with a company that has at least a decade of history (we’ve been in business for more than 25 years). This not only shows a company with experience, but one that has earned the trust of the community and numerous customers over the years.

Awards

Awards are more than just pats on the back for work well done. They indicate recognition from the best people in the HVAC and electrical industries as well as from customer advocacy and community groups. We’ve won the Angie’s List Super Service Award five different times, and our other awards include the Certificate of Congressional Recognition, 29th Congressional District, 2016; City of Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce, Small Business Award; Safety Services OSHA Compliance Recognition Award; and many more.

Kilowatt Heating, Air Conditioning and Electrical provides air conditioning and heating service to Beverly Hills, CA and throughout Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.
