As a property manager in Albuquerque your job is to manage the day-to-day operations and keep things running smooth. Some of your responsibilities may include developing preventative maintenance plans, scheduling repairs, and responding to emergencies. When things go wrong you are usually the first to know. Especially when it comes to broken heaters or air conditioners. 

Of the many categories you are responsible for, heating and air conditioning tops the list in our central New Mexico climate. While there are many challenges to maintaining rental properties, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) should not be one of them. To ease some of the stress we recommend choosing a trusted company for HVAC service. Let’s discuss how to choose the right HVAC service for your property. 

Factors to consider when choosing a company in the Albuquerque area.

  • Finding a contractor you can trust.

There are over 61 highly-rated HVAC companies in the Albuquerque area. Finding a local contractor you can rely on will help keep your tenants satisfied and make your job easier. 

Start by searching the internet for HVAC or heating and cooling services near you. Reading customer reviews can give you good insight. Make an appointment to meet with the contractor for an estimate and to find out more about their company. 

  • Experience with maintenance contracts is a must.

Make sure the HVAC company you are considering is familiar with property management contracts. The contractor should have the appropriate licenses and certificates and have experience with many types of AC units and heaters. 

Having a staff that is reliable is also important when determining if the company is a good fit for your property needs. The company should provide maintenance and service and be knowledgeable about the types of equipment and systems. 

  • Choose a contractor that respects your budget.

The HVAC company should be well-versed in maintenance agreements with suitable options to fit your needs. It is important to find out what the management agreement includes for your rental property. 

With your budget in mind, make sure to confirm how the number of units and length of the contract will affect pricing. Many contractors will offer special pricing based on the length of the contract and the size of the property. The agreements many times will include priority service when repair needs arise.
