1. What is the full name and address of the company?

 2. Does the company carry insurance?

A contractor should carry comprehensive liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance* to protect you in the event of an accident. 

There are a variety of reasons why full insurance may not be carried by a contractor, such as:

  • Not a full-time contractor
  • Operates as a partnership or self-employed without employees
  • New in the business
  • Can’t afford insurance premiums
  • Doesn’t stand behind work

It is up to you to determine if it is worth the risk to hire a contractor who does not carry insurance.

3. Is the company a licensed or credentialed contractor? 

4. How long has the company been in business?

5. Will the company provide referrals or references from previous jobs?

  • Local Better Business Bureau (BBB)
  • Social media 
  • Website

Hello Geoff,

If you are currently using a AC system I would suggest maybe looking into a few different options.

1)Try keeping some blinds closed during the hottest periods of the day (also helps from discolouring your furniture or flooring)

2) Circulating the air with multiple fans - also checking to see if the room is well insulated might prove to be beneficial.

3) check to see if your windows are sealed properly- are there cracks in the frame, do you seep gaps or see outside from the sides of the window etc.

4) If your home is a bit older it might be wise to have your windows checked. (what kind of glass are in your windows are they vinyl etc.)

Changing your homes windows can decrease your energy bill significantly and will help keep the "cool" in during the hotter months and "warmth" in on the cooler months.

Hope this helps!
