4 Things to Look For in an AC Company

September 6, 2018

Whether you’re in need of an air conditioner tune-up, repair, or total replacement, hiring the right HVAC company for the job is a must. After all, you rely heavily on your home’s air conditioning to keep you cool and comfortable in the Georgia heat.

As you seek out the right air conditioning professional for your needs, there are a few things worth looking for.

1. Glowing Referrals

Any reputable HVAC company should be able to provide you with a list of referrals from real clients for which they’ve done work in the past. Take time to follow up with at least a couple of these clients to find out more about their experience with the company. An HVAC professional with glowing referrals is always a good sign.

2. Licensure/Insurance

Having only a licensed HVAC professional working on your home’s air conditioning unit is a must, so don’t hesitate to ask for not only proof of licensure, but proof of insurance as well. Choosing a company with liability insurance is important because if something were to happen on your property (such as an accident that leaves a worker injured), you don’t want to be held liable, financially or otherwise.

3. Free Estimates

You should never have to pay for an estimate or quote on your air conditioning repair or replacement job, so make sure the company you’re considering offers free, no-obligation quotes on the work you need done. When you receive a quote, be sure to review it carefully and, if needed, ask for a breakdown of costs so you can get a better idea of what, exactly, you’re being charged for. You should also find out if your quote is binding; this would mean that the company cannot increase the price of your quoted service after the fact.

4. Great Communication

You can tell a lot about an HVAC professional based on how well he or she communicates with you. When you have a question or concern, is it easy to have this addressed? How quickly does the company return your phone calls or emails? Choosing an HVAC professional with excellent communication is a must, especially when you’re trusting them with such an important component of your home.
