The Local Tactics
No Itemized Bills
What they do - The prices listed on local quotes include all costs such equipment, installation, and any extra services or accessories. You have no way of knowing what you are actually paying for, so they can charge whatever they want with no explanation.
What we do - We have clearly listed prices with no hideen fees or costs. The price you see on our site is the price you pay!
The High Efficiency Bait and Switch
What they do - High efficiency systems are a major selling point for local companies, and they will almost always suggest you order a high efficiency system even if you don’t need it to get you to spend more.
What we do - Our HVAC technician recommended a slightly lower efficiency system to ease the up-front cost.
- He let the customer know that while this system may run a little more on energy bills, with their home being less than 2,000 square feet with good insulation, the difference wouldn’t be much.
Convincing You That Name Brand is “Better”
What they do- Local company's will always tell to buy the “name brand” equipment, and try to convince you it is better.
What we do - Our tech knows this is typically not true, and the internal components of HVAC equipment are usually the same, no matter what brand you buy.
