Find the right AC contractor
Finding the right AC contractor for your needs is an important part of home ownership. After all, you are going to put your faith and trust in them to deliver quality service and maintenance and you want to be 100% certain that you are in good hands. Below we’ve outlined 4 great ways to help you find the perfect contractor for you and your family.
- Speak to people you trust: While this is the most obvious way to find a good AC contractor, getting recommendations from trusted friends or family members is still a sound approach. When discussing contractors, be sure that you are thorough and you both have similar cooling needs.
- Service or maintenance contracts? While many people use these terms interchangeably, there are serious differences between the two. With a maintenance contracts you never pay for unneeded parts or service, whereas with a service contract you’ll pay a yearly fee whether you need service or not. Look for contractors that offer maintenance contracts as they tend to be much fairer to homeowners.
- BBB Rating: While many consumers often check internet reviews to gain insight about potential air conditioning contractors, they sometimes forget to check the gold standard of business grading — the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Rating. With so many contractor choices available to you, accept nothing less than an A+ rating.
- Meet in person: Never agree to anything with a simple phone call. Meet a representative of the company and ask them as many questions as you need to make an informed decision. Take careful note of how they present themselves and their company. Remember, a company that cares about the quality of their service will also care about the demeanor and dress of their employees.
