Don’t invite them over without first talking on the phone about the work you are going to have them do. Over the phone you can ask them about the process, prices, products, and the invasiveness of any necessary maintenance. They should be able to provide you with enough information such that you can tell if they are knowledgeable or just trying to get extra work.

Find out what they recommend

Ask them about your situation. Tell them about the air, your HVAC system if you have one, and any other issues that you may have. A company like AirLux Heating & Cooling will ask you about your vents and the age of your house. Everything matters when discussing the air quality of your home.

Always talk through the process over the phone first

Once you are pleased with the contractor talk to them about scheduling a visit. This will ensure that you fully understand what the timing considerations will be and the work that will be done. Don’t be surprised when they come. Instead ask about all potential issues.
