Questions to Ask Before Getting an Air Conditioning Service

Anytime you hire a contractor, you need to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself. By allowing a stranger to work on a major unit in your home, you are putting a lot of trust in them. In order to feel confident that you are choosing a good company to handle your air conditioning service, there are some questions you should ask ahead of time.

  • Can You Provide References?

One of the best ways to gauge how a company handles their customers is to speak directly to a past client. They should be able to give you a rundown of how the task went so that you can get an idea of how it will go when you hire the company.

  • What are the Costs?

The best way to find out how much you are expected to pay is by asking for a written estimate right from the start. This allows you to decide if financing is needed to get the repair performed. Some companies may even offer a promotional 0% interest rate that allows you to finance the project without accruing interest. If you decide to replace your system altogether, you may be eligible for rebates.

  • Are the Technicians Certified by the EPA?
