Certified for Excellence: How Our Accreditations Ensure You a Better Service

When you hire an HVAC contractor, there are a number of things you need assurance of. Their reliability, technical competence and track record are a good place to start, but they should also show a commitment to industry best practice, environmental responsibility, and customer satisfaction. 

The challenge is to identify a contractor that not only promises excellent service but also delivers on that promise.

At Loughborough Air Conditioning we take great pride in holding a number of accreditations that offer that assurance. Here’s a closer look at what they are, and what they mean to you as a customer.
