Our Handy HVAC Contractor Checklist
Licensing and Experience
Your HVAC system is probably the most expensive appliance in your home. You want assurance that whoever works on it has appropriate training, correct permits and specialty licensing for the work being done. Always check to make sure they have the proper municipal license required to work within the Anchorage area. You can verify our licensing here.
References and Referrals
When you’re seeking an HVAC contractor, ask your friends, neighbors or co-workers for references. Were jobs completed on time and within the budget? Did the company perform? clean installations and respect the homeowner’s property? Did the company test the system after it was installed to ensure maximum efficiency?
Run potential contractors past the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints are registered, and if so, what kind. Ask local trade organizations for names of their members in your area, or consult online services such as the Air Conditioning Contractors of America. Moore Heating and Air Conditioning is a member of the Better Business Bureau, which means you can check our references here.

Moore Heating and Air Conditioning also offers its customers a 15/5 Preventative Maintenance Program to help provide annual maintenance and the added benefits of priority service and special discounting.
Home Evaluation and Efficiency
If you’re ready to have an HVAC system installed, potential contractors should conduct a thorough home evaluation to determine the best heating and cooling solution. Though your square footage is an important starting point, a professional contractor will not base his recommendation solely on square footage.
A contractor will make recommendations that also factor in variables such as insulation efficiency and heating and cooling loads. He will also account for various home penetrations and portals such as windows, doors and utility entrances and take advantage of existing infrastructure such as ductwork, base board units or in-floor heating. An excellent contractor will not only evaluate your dwelling areas but also inspect crawl spaces below and attic spaces above that may have impact on your new heaters efficiency.
