Find a Contractor
Check out our helpful tips for choosing a contractor for your project...
You can use a contractor of your choice, or you can consult the CT Heating and Cooling Contractors at www.chcca.net or the CT Association of Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors at www.ct-phcc.org. Please note that these contractors are independent and are not employees of Yankee Gas. Yankee Gas is not a party to any contract that you sign with your contractor and does not guarantee any work performed by your contractor. You are under no obligation to use these contractors for your gas conversion.
- Look for a contractor who is willing to spend time with you to understand your needs.
- Get at least three written estimates from different contractors.
- Ask for proof of proper licensing and insurance, including workers compensation and liability.
- Ask the contractors for references and their experience with the equipment or appliances they will be installing.
- Check with your local Better Business Bureau about the company you plan to hire.
- See if the company will obtain a local permit, if necessary, and be sure they understand local residential building codes.
- For heating or cooling equipment, the contractor should calculate heat loss or heat gain to ensure the equipment is sized properly for the project.
- Ask your contractor about the efficiency rating of equipment or appliances. Different ratings will impact your annual operating costs.
- Ask about product warranties - what is covered and for how long?
- Always sign a contract.
