We get how important it is to find a reliable company that does great work. We can help. Determining the answers to these questions can help you make a confident, informed decision.

  1. How long have you been in business? A company that has been around a long time with long-term employees is often a good one.
  2. Is your company insured? Any professional that works in your home should carry liability insurance to guard you in the case of accidental damage or injury.
  3. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians carry? A truly professional AC repair company will require their professionals to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their professionals to keep them up-to-date with industry trends and developments.
  4. Do you have any references you can share? A trustworthy company that offers AC repair should have a list of references they’ll happily share with you. Check these references and find out all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has performed.
  5. Will you offer a written estimate? Make certain to get a written estimate so you can review all the particulars involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t automatically the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you whittle down companies you aren’t planning to work with, no matter how much less they are.
  6. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to ensure the company you choose has experience working on your specific equipment, especially if it has any less-common features.
  7. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work backed by a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t ok standing behind their work, you should probably move on.
