How to choose a HVAC commissioning company

HVAC systems deliver a range of benefits for businesses. They help to create a more comfortable environment, regulate temperature and humidity while creating a healthier atmosphere that can aid staff productivity.

The next choice you have to make is which HVAC commissioning company to choose to carry out the work. It’s a big investment so it’s important to get it right.

What do you need to consider when choosing a company, and what should you look for?

What to look for in a HVAC commissioning company?

When you’re considering HVAC commissioning companies it’s important to take a look at the exact set of services that they offer. Ultimately, they should be able to deliver an environmentally friendly, safe and efficient HVAC system for your business at a reasonable overall price.

The HVAC commissioning process is a crucial part of the design, construction and ongoing maintenance of a Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The principal goal of the process is to ensure that the installed system works as intended and is operating safely and efficiently.

It’s therefore important to ensure that the company you are considering have a proven track record when it comes to achieving these goals. The company should be able to talk you through some of the other projects on which they’ve worked, particularly those that have some relevance to the kind of work that you want them to complete. Experienced HVAC commissioning companies will have worked with businesses and in buildings of a variety of sizes, and with very different requirements.

Another crucial factor is the team that will be carrying out the work. Are they experienced and what qualifications do they have? Do the team have a proven track record and who will be in charge of the day to day operations? Another question to consider is whether or not they have all the skills they need in house, or might they need to bring extra contractors in to carry out the work? If it’s the latter, will that add any extra cost or time to the process?

Does the company provide ongoing maintenance and breakdown services and how are these delivered?

The HVAC commissioning process can be extensive as well as expensive. Bearing this in mind, it’s important to be as thorough as you can when it comes to choosing the company you will commission to carry out the work.

How do you know your HVAC commissioning company is perfect for the job?

The company that you want to work with to carry out your HVAC commissioning process should be willing to answer any questions you might have. They should be willing to thoroughly explain the process to you while giving you a detailed breakdown of the work that will be involved. They will be clear in their communications, telling you what to expect and when the work is likely to be completed.

They should have a depth of knowledge and experience and show that they understand the unique requirements of both your building and your business. They should be willing to provide you with a timescale of when and how the work will be completed. They should also provide you with a single point of contact at the company with whom you can liaise to have any questions answered and to sort out any hitches or holdups along the way.

Finally, is the price they quote realistic for your budget? While price should never be the sole basis on which you make your decision, it is always a factor.
