Footnotes:

  1. Only one person in the company has to be licensed. That’s usually the owner. Most repairmen are not licensed themselves.
  2. The state of California does not require HVAC repairmen to take any training or pass any test. Quite literally anyone can be a repairman.
  3. A company that’s NATE certified doesn’t actually have to send a NATE certified repairman to your home. Most repairmen are not certified.
  4. Most HVAC contractors with lots of reviews have employees. I’m unaware of any other contractor with hundreds of reviews per employee.
  5. Those cute little minivans just don’t hold much. In my opinion, a company that’s serious about service will send a fully loaded full-size vehicle.
