Who Are You Letting Into Your Home?

ATTN Westchester Homeowners: Do You Know
What Kind Of Person Is In YOUR Home?

50% Of HVAC Companies Hire Subcontractors To Save Money.
YOU Pay The Price.

Many HVAC companies decide to hire subcontractors instead of hiring employees. It’s less expensive, less time-consuming, and it’s a great way for a company to avoid liability. But here’s the rub: subcontractors legally CAN’T be told how or when to complete their work.

Yes, you read that right. When HVAC companies hire subcontractors to do a job, they need to follow certain rules. They can provide their subcontractors with general guidelines, but to be in compliance with the labor contract they can’t specify how they want the work done, and what timeframe the subcontractors need to stick to.

This caveat can lead to problems with the HVAC work that is done by subcontractors. Big problems.


Sloppy, Half-Hearted Work

Think about it. If you have ZERO personal investment in something, what would motivate you to perform well? Nothing.

Now, add to that the fact that the general contractor’s hands are tied when it comes to doling out advice, guidance, and instruction — and you’re left with a VERY high probability that a job done by subcontractors will be done halfheartedly at best, and at worst — incorrectly.

At Innovative Air, our employees are held to a very high standard. Doing sloppy work or phoning it in is not acceptable. This high standard has pushed us to become Pearl Certified. This means that all the work we do has the stamp of approval from a third, objective, party. Shoddy work is completely out of the question.


Missed Deadlines, Or No Deadlines At All

Ever had an AC, boiler or furnace that was going to be fixed TOMORROW — for a month straight?

Chances are, once upon a time, tomorrow really did mean TOMORROW. There were deadlines, timeframes to complete certain parts of the project, and project managers who predicted the completion date of the project. But then everything fell apart, and no one took accountability to get the project up and running again.

Subcontractors are not held to any deadlines. This means they can take their merry time completing projects at THEIR OWN PACE. And that pace can be a snail’s pace — because no one can dictate otherwise. If you don’t have integrity, and you have ZERO sense of accountability, it’s VERY easy to let things slide…for days, weeks, and months.

Every single one of our employees puts integrity first and has a STRONG sense of accountability. When our employees are on a job, they feel OBLIGATED to finish on time, and provide the customer with an efficient HVAC system.


You Have NO Idea Who’s In Your Home

Who are you letting into your home?

When you hire HVAC companies that uses subcontractors, you literally can’t answer that question. You have NO idea who the subcontractor tinkering with your AC system is or what he values. He didn’t attend any employee enrichment training or meetings. He didn’t submit to any background checks or drug screenings.

We can vouch for every single one of our employees, because we ONLY hire individuals who have values that align with our core values. Attention to detail and solid communication skills are two other qualities that are non-negotiable for us. If an Innovative Air employee is in YOUR home, this means that he passed our strict screening and hiring process. We can vouch for him 100%.
