Always ask for references, and always check them. Keep in mind though that the only references you'll get are people who the contractor is certain will give him a good review. You'd also be well advised to check online review sources in Saint Louis as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
This really only matters if you have a preference, but it is good to ask. If you have a strong ideological belief about unions or nonunions, it's perfectly acceptable to make a decision based on the preference.
Some companies may require a 10% deposit, some may not require any. For larger projects, you'll almost always need to give a deposit, and it's good to ask how much the deposit will be before going forward with a project. The Saint Louis contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
The question is great for some industries and non-applicable for others. A general contractor, for example, will by definition employ subcontractors. Most Saint Louis Cooling companies do not, but there are exceptions. You should always ask this question to your service providers. If they do use subcontractors, ask if they're all licensed and insured independently.
