Angie's list will probably black ball me from responding to this, but why is it best to get 3 estimates? Whay is it better to get detailed estimates? What are you really purchasing? When you have a HVAC company come to your home, you are purchasing his SERVICE. You are not buying equipment. You can go buy any equipment for yourself online or at a supply house. I personally do not get into specifics with clients. A homeowner is not in a position to pick what equipment is best for him, what he is picking is what services he wants from a company, along with what quality of install he wants, and what benefits he wants. None of these things can be compared, even through "estimates". I explain to people that if you TRUST me, use me, if you do not trust me, we will not be a good fit, and we would rather not move forward. What causes tension is when a person moves forward with a company who they do not trust and do not feel comfortable with. A good company, who will probably have the higher initial investment, will be there if there is a problem. HVAC systems are not like cars, where you can go to the dealer and buy the same exact vehicle, each installation is unique, even from 2 different companies using the exact same components. I disagree with the getting estimates, unless, you do not have a current company who you trust. At that point, I would suggest getting companies to "propose" ( estimates are round-about-numbers that change once the job starts) solutions that will be best for you and your family. You can not compare service and installation which actually accounts for over 90% of your happiness. We, as a company, design our own systems, which also can not be compared, and I do not share them with my competition. But I do refer people to read the reviews of, and to speak with the many satisfied clients I have performed these services for.

GlennJr - I think the point that was being made is that is a person is looking for an HVAC company on Angies List (or other vendor) it means they do not already have one they have a good history with - so getting 3 bids serves the dual purposes of being able to assess their comfort level with several vendors without pre-committing to one off the bat, of hearing several different opinions and approaches to their situation, and of seeing three competing bids to greatly reduce the chance of taking an offer that is out of the normal price range for the scope of work.


I agree using a vendor you have a long and happy history with is the best is you can - I have convinced clients to do that for a number of small through very large jobs (in $100's of millions each) - but someone with the knowledge and experience in the thype of work they need done will not be looking on AL for a vendor.
