If you’re looking for a plumbing, air-conditioning and heating contractor and are researching different options, here’s a list of the top four things to look for, that will help you quicken your search and make an informed decision.

1. Personal presentation
Personal presentation is how a professional portrays themself to other people. If their personal presentation isn’t appropriate for their work environment, you already become a little hesitant at their lack of professionalism and effort. A contractor needs to portray themself in a way in which you are able to perceive them as a helpful and useful professional at their job.

2. Qualifications and trade tickets
Most established contractors are properly certified and you should consider what the required licenses for your Province are. Any professional that works in your home should carry liability insurance to protect you in case of accidental damage. A trade ticket is a record of all terms and conditions, If you’re scared of the possibility of staggering bills, research your preferred contractor to see how you could benefit from them in the long run before settling on an agreement.  

3. Experience
You should always ask a prospective contractor about their experience. Stability in the business is a good indicator that the contractor is doing something right. Hire a company with qualified service technicians on their staff and is committed to updating their knowledge and honing their skills through regular training. 

4. Past work experience 
Ask for references and talk to past clients about their experiences. The company should have a list of recent customers you can contact to verify that the company performed in a timely manner and to their satisfaction. Make sure you actually call those references to get important and relevant details about how their project fared.
