Here’s What a Reputable Heating Contractor Can Do For You


When searching for heating contractors in Colorado Springs, we know there are a lot of options. In fact, a Google search may have led you to this very blog. When hiring an HVAC contractor, there are a lot of things to take into consideration because unfortunately, not all HVAC companies are trustworthy.

So what should you look for when trying to find a reputable contractor to work on your home’s expensive HVAC systems? From how long they’ve been in business to checking their online reviews, let’s go over the things you should look for to make sure you’ve chosen a reputable HVAC company.

Licensed and Insured

You should never hire an HVAC “contractor” who can’t show you proper insurance and licensure. Without these, not only are they not qualified to work on your HVAC systems, but hiring them could potentially expose you to litigation if they were to have an accident in your home.

At Brown’s, we have all the proper licensing and insurance that are required to work on your home’s HVAC systems. You’ll never have to worry about the risks associated with hiring an amateur or have to put up with sub-par workmanship. We never cut corners and pride ourselves on our ethical attention to safety codes.

Years in Business

A company that has been in business for a while is a solid sign of a reputable contractor. Perhaps you’ve read some reviews of companies that have been in business for 5-10 years that seem positive. But keep in mind that some of those reviews have been written by people who’ve only had their equipment for a few years.

An established company is one that has several decades of experience under its belt. You can rest assured knowing that a contractor that’s been around for a while has stood the test of time and is obviously doing things right. 

We’re proud of the the fact that we were founded in 1996 and have almost 40 years of experience in the HVAC business. In fact, we’ve had some of the same customers for decades. 

Core Values

We’re not your average “Chucks in a truck.” That is, we are not in this business to “sell you stuff.” Our core values are hard work, fair pricing, and a focus on safety first. We deliver WOW Service and exceed your expectations, every time. We pride ourselves on doing the right thing, all the time, even when nobody’s watching.

Integrity is everything for us—we’re not the type of company who will tell you your HVAC system needs to be replaced when in reality, you could get by with a repair. You can trust our home comfort heroes to be honest with you, always!


Ask a potential contractor about their accreditations. If they can’t name any, or can only name a few, that’s a red flag. We hold many accreditations and memberships with the Better Business Bureau and the following:

  • Mitsubishi Diamond Dealer
  • ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America
  • PPMCA (Pikes Peak Mechanical Contractors Association) 
  • HBA – Home Builder’s Association
  • Comfort Institute
