It is easy to get contemporary indoor heating and cooling systems for granted. However the the truth is these devices keep us comfortable and happy throughout the year. That's why National In-door Comfort Week, April 23 to 29, has been put aside to recognize ventilating, heating and air-conditioning (HVAC) contractors and the important work they perform to make sure our home and work environments are comfortable.

The most critical part of planning your home's cooling system for summer may be selecting a competent contractor who's trained to maintain, repair and/or change the components of your system.

That will help you choose a supplier who is certified in Air Conditioning and Heating, and who may appropriately service your cooling system, the professionals at Coleman Heating and Air Conditioning, a brand of the Unitary Products and services Group of York-a Johnson Controls Company-offer these suggestions:

• Keep yourself well-informed about H-vac systems. You will find this information in manufacturer The web sites and seller and online learning resources. When selecting a potential company understanding the fundamentals can help you.

• Ask co-workers, friends, real estate professionals and do-it-yourself professionals for recommendations. Ads may also direct one to a contractor.

• When interviewing a dealer, check for membership in professional organizations, including NATE (North American Technician Excellence) and ACCA (Ac Contractors of America).

• Ask to see state and local licenses, accreditation for refrigerant handling, and proof-of liability and worker's compensation insurance. Be certain these documents affect the contractor, in addition to any professionals or subcontractors the contractor uses.

• Research the product range of ser-vices a contractor provides. Does the list include scheduled preservation, repairs and 24-hour service?

• Consider the period of time a contractor has been in business. Most of the time, a name for quality, reliability and stability grows with the size of service to your group.

Your home will be visited by a good HVAC contractor to perform an on-site evaluation and ask questions about your concerns and cooling needs, prior to making any equipment or service tips.

• Require and check references. Try Air Conditioning Phoenix contains
