We get how important it is to find a trustworthy company that does fantastic work. We can help. Figuring out the answers to these questions can help you make a confident, educated decision. How long have you been in business? A company that has been around a long time with long-term employees is typically a good one. Is your company insured? Any pro that works in your home should carry liability insurance to guard you in the case of accidental damage or injury. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians have? A truly professional AC repair company will require their experts to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their professionals to keep them up-to-date with current trends and developments. Do you have any references you can share? A reliable company that can do AC repair should have a list of references they’ll happily share with you. Call these references and find out all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has completed. Will you provide a written estimate? Be sure to get a written estimate so you can review all the facts involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t always the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you whittle down companies you aren’t interested in working with, no matter how much less they are. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to be sure the company you pick has experience working on your brand of equipment, especially if it has any less-common features. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work that has a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t fine with standing behind their work, maybe you should move on.
