Choosing an HVAC contractor can be a daunting task. If you work with the right company, then the process of repairing your HVAC unit can be a smooth and effortless process. Did you know that your energy efficiency can suffer if your HVAC system isn’t installed properly? And if you choose the wrong HVAC company to repair your system, you could end up with an “HVAC Wall of Shame” story to tell your friends and neighbours at the next block party (who wants that?!).
Whether your home’s heating and/or cooling system is in need of routine maintenance, emergency repairs or a total replacement, selecting a qualified HVAC contractor is an important decision! To ensure you hire a qualified professional that best fits your job, here are a few simple tips to help you find the best HVAC contractor for your needs.
Choose The Right HVAC Contractor With These 5 Simple Tips:
Tip #1 Get A Referral
Ask neighbors, friends, and family for referrals for reliable HVAC contractors in your area. Referrals can give a homeowner insight as to the type of experience they can expect from a particular contractor.
Tip #2 Read Reviews
A quick glance at the number of review stars can often be misleading. Be sure to read the written comments and look for HVAC contractors with a good reputation for value, quality and customer service. Read Ignite Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. reviews on Google here! We also have great reviews on Yelp and Facebook!
Tip #3 Locate An Authorized Dealer
If you’re looking at a particular brand of furnace, check out the manufacturer’s website for recommendations of a local dealer and/or HVAC contractor in your area. For Napoleon products, search here to find an authorized dealer in your area. Ignite Heating is an authorized dealer of Napoleon products!
Tip #4 Look At Reliability
Check out how long the HVAC Contractor has been in business. If a company has been around for a long period of time, it usually indicates that they are well established, familiar with their service area, knowledgeable about the needs of their client base, and have very capable and skilled technicians with many years of experience. Research the history of the contractor and the business.
Tip #5 Don’t Always Go With The Lowest Bid
Sometimes, a lower price doesn’t always mean it should be your first choice. Paying a little bit more will often result in better equipment and service from your chosen company. If there are huge discrepancies in price from one contractor to another, ask them why their prices are set that way. For example, higher prices can indicate better quality of equipment, training of technicians, and above average maintenance agreements.

When I had three companies come in to check if I needed a new furnace or if I should service my current one, this was the only company that told me that I have one of the best ‘old fashioned’ furnaces & that I should keep it as long as I can. Ignite is a very reliable and trustworthy. They have installed my airconditioning since & they are the ones I call when I need the furnace serviced.
We contacted ignite heating to replace a bathroom fan, replace a thermostat. and do a general check of the furnace in our 1950's bungalow. After a bit of back and forth on scheduling the team that arrived was great. Very efficient and courteous they completed all the jobs and swept/vacuumed after themselves. We really appreciated that they took us through the different aspects of our furnace and what each of the tests were for and specifics of the results. We would use them for any future heating needs.
Ignite Heating helped me with repairing my home furnace. I found their technicians to be professional, courteous and knowledgeable.. Furthermore, having compared their charges with other quotes, I found their price for the work done very reasonable..
We called at 6pm with our issue. Ignite dropped off the part we needed by 8pm (diagnosed issue over the phone/photos msg'd) and I was able to install/have my furnace working 5 minutes later. Invoice in hand and paid. Perfect.
My furnace stopped working last night during the cold snap, and I called Ignite Heating very early on a Saturday morning. They answered my call and the lead technician called me back within 20 minutes. He was able to diagnose the problem over the phone and patiently walked me through the troubleshooting. Now my furnace is up and running again. Great response time and customer service - I will be using them for all my heating + AC needs!
