Searching for a Quality AC Repair Contractor
An AC repair contractor who is dependable and honest is as valuable to an Alabama household as a decent plumber, or even a skilled doctor.
But the time to choose your heating and cooling contractor is in the fall or winter — not when River Region weather heats up, your system conks out, and desperation sets in. In those cases, too many unscrupulous companies take advantage of property owners by making unnecessary or shoddy repairs and overcharging for them.
Screen for an AC repair contractor at your leisure, when your HVAC system is performing well, because sooner or later, you’ll need a technician either to fix problems or install a new system.
How to Find a Good AC Repair Contractor
- Check credentials. Reputable AC contractors are licensed by the state, insured, and certified by industry associations such as NATE, or North American Technician Excellence. A Better Business Bureau record of outstanding customer service helps, too.
- Compare contractors. One method of sizing up an HVAC contractor is to inquire about their maintenance contracts. If a company offers free or incredibly cheap contracts to service your system twice a year, be skeptical. A contractor should be willing to provide details on what is inspected during a service call. Also, find out if the contractor routinely trains employees in order to keep up with the latest HVAC technology.
- Rely on YOUR references, not theirs. Most contractors are able to cherry-pick customers for positive referrals. Taking the time to independently solicit the opinions of neighbors or friends who have had heating and cooling work done recently is worth the effort. You’re more apt to get an unbiased sense of a contractor’s ability from these customers.
