That is why choosing the right commercial HVAC company is critical. For more than 130 years, AFC has been serving Central Maine businesses and homes with dependable, quality, expert service.

As you look for your HVAC service provider, here are some important things you need to consider.


Ensure that your HVAC service provider has the knowledge, skills, and experience to properly take care of your HVAC system. Ask for their license number and proof of insurance and look it up to verify. When you work with AFC, you can be assured that every single one of our service technicians, electricians, and plumbers is licensed and fully insured.


There are a lot of HVAC contractors out there. But have they worked with commercial HVAC systems that are often larger and more complex than residential HVAC systems? Ask about their commercial work and find out if they are experienced with what you need done.

Reviews and references

Using review sites such as Google or Better Business Bureau is a good start, but not enough. Ask your potential HVAC contractor to give you references. If they can’t or won’t, that is a huge red flag and a sign you should not hire this contractor. If you get references, contact those references, and ask about the contractor’s work.


You must be sure that your HVAC contractor will be there when you need them. Ask potential HVAC contractors about their emergency policy. AFC offers 24/7 emergency service.

Estimates and guarantees

Ask for a clear, statement summarizing the work that a prospective HVAC company will do, and an estimate for the cost of the work. Make sure you understand the terms of warranty your contractor provides, as well as any limits on coverage. Also, check to see whether the work your contractor will perform may inadvertently invalidate any warranties on your equipment. AFC provides free, comprehensive estimates and we back up all our work.
