Finding a reliable contractor for an AC, heating or boiler installation job is challenging enough without being pestered left and right by high-pressure sales tactics. This can be especially stressful if you don’t know or understand enough about the HVAC units you ‘re thinking about purchasing. Trustworthy HVAC companies will take their time to help you through your decision and give you room to explore all the options you have on the table.
Unfortunately, there are many unscrupulous salespeople who are only in it for a sale. Their usual strategies can leave you flustered and confused, but they shouldn’t lead you to making the wrong choice. Here are a few tips from our experts at Econoair Heating & Cooling Inc. on what to do when you’re being pressured by an HVAC salesperson.
Take a step back and breathe. When you’re being “forced” into getting a service such as a central air or ductless HVAC installation project, a salesperson will often target your emotions. You’re more likely to jump on impulsive buys when you’re excited or agitated. Recognizing this early on, however, should give you a chance to take a step back, breathe and reassess your decision.
Know your objectives. You already know that you’re getting a new HVAC system–now you just have to make a decision on which system to ultimately choose. Take your time and learn as much as you can about all the potential heating and cooling candidates you’re presented. Sometimes, it may even be possible to ask for things that weren’t initially shown to you. Decide what you want your new units to do and use your objectives to further narrow down your options.
Research the company. Unfortunately, there are some furnace and air conditioner installation contractors who may not have your best interests at heart. Check with the BBB or previous customers to make sure that you’re dealing with reputable professionals before you agree to any sales pitches.
