How long have you been in business? A company that has been around a long time with long-term employees is usually a good one. Is your company insured? Any pro that works in your home should carry liability insurance to cover you in the case of accidental damage or injury. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians hold? A truly professional AC repair company will require their technicians to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their professionals to keep them up-to-date with industry trends and developments. Do you have any references you can share? A dependable company that offers AC repair should have a number of references they’ll happily offer you. Look at these references and figure out all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has completed. Will you offer a written estimate? Make sure to get a written estimate so you can look at all the details involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t always the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you get rid of companies you aren’t wanting to work 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 go with has experience working on your specific equipment, especially if it has any less-common features. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work supported by a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t fine with standing behind their work, you should probably move on.
